How we learn is how we are feeling. The research states this unequivocally.~Kim Schonert-Reichl
On October 4th, 2018 we gathered for the Changing Results for Young Children Network Session. This was an inspirational, fun-filled and busy day spent together.
We were joined by District facilitators, Leads, Ministry staff, BCTF representatives, Early Learning partners. The day was joyfully hosted by Maria LeRose.
Presentations and updates on current and future research as well as early childhood pedagogy were given by:
Kim Schonert-Reichl, Director of Human Early Partnership HELP UBC and Professor, UBC Faculty of Education presented: Promoting Young Children’s Social & Emotional Development and Well-Being.
Jane Bertrand, International expert on Early Childhood Education, MWMFF & Atkinson Centre, OISE and author of the PLAY TODAY Handbook (DRAFT)
presented: The Power of Play Based Learning
We finished up the morning with an enlightening panel discussion moderated by interviewer and producer, Maria LeRose. Our panel: Jennifer McCrea, Assistant Deputy Minister, Jane Bertrand and Kim Schonert-Reichl.
It was a day of connections, common understandings and planning as each of the facilitators and leads from the represented 42 districts and communities go back to their teams of educators with this information and to start their research.
