Watch a Story Literally Unfold From the Creases of this Kids' Book | early childhood education and more | Scoop.it

"The Adventures of a Village begins like many stories do—by setting the scene. In this case, a small cluster of snow-covered buildings are intersected by winding train tracks. That's it. What happens next is a clever play on the old Choose Your Own Adventure books—but, instead of turning pages to read ahead, their corners are folded over like narrative origami to reveal visual plot points featuring everything from UFOs to hot air balloons."

The Need for Pretend Play in Child Development | Beautiful Minds, Scientific American Blog Network | early childhood education and more | Scoop.it


Many people often think of play in the form of images of young children at recess engaging in games of tag, ball, using slides, swings, and physically exploring their environments. But physical play is not the only kind of play. We often use the terms pretend play or make-believe play (the acting out of stories which involve multiple perspectives and the playful manipulation of ideas and emotions), that reflect a critical feature of the child’s cognitive and social development.

Large brands know social media is something they need to be across. Social media is where people connect with each other. Large brands attract though people connect with people. The challenge is leveraging off the brand then having people make the personal connection. Then the power of social media can be tapped!

Audrey's curator insight, October 30, 2013 11:12 AM

“Children can educate themselves and are good at doing so if the conditions are right."


They also need guidance, in the ways put forward by both Piaget and Vygotsky.  


Materials in the form of educational toys, games, books, where they can make their own selections are crucial.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, October 30, 2013 12:01 PM

Children, with appropriate guidance, can provide insight and direction for their learning. They usually know what they like and what they do not like. The key is to elicit information which helps to bring what they want to fruition. I think educators are afraid of these conversations.

An Intriguing Participation Policy | Faculty Focus

An Intriguing Participation Policy | Faculty Focus | early childhood education and more | Scoop.it

I was looking at participation policies in a collection of syllabi this week. I wouldn’t give most of them high marks—lots of vague descriptions that don’t functionally define participation and then prescribe instructor assessment at the end of course with little or no mention of criteria. But I’ve voiced my concerns about participation policies previously, so I won’t do again here. Instead, what I would like to share with you is a policy that’s impressive in its specificity and in the intriguing idea it contains.

Are we too quick to cry 'bully'? | early childhood education and more | Scoop.it
Some educators and researchers that the "bullying" has been overused and abused, watering down its true, very serious meaning.

 

Every parent, teacher and child knows the word: "bullying." But this month, as schools and communities launch fresh campaigns around National Bullying Prevention Month, some are urging more precise use of the B-word.

"Bullying," some researchers say, has been misused and abused in the last few years -- too casually uttered about every hurt, slight and fight, too frequently used in place of "teasing" or "fighting," too often brought up before there's proof it happened.

The very word, some say, has been bullied.
