Understanding the Network for Learning and Schemas
Please join Murdoch Education for a free seminar presented by Dr Stella Louis, early years consultant, trainer and author from London, UK.
In this presentation, Stella will discuss Friedrich Froebel’s distinct ideas about play as symbolic, imitative and creative. She will discuss the role of adults in understanding the structure of play in order to support children’s learning. Stella will also discuss the ways children learn through first hand experiences and the network for learning. She will present examples of ways children use symbolic representation to make sense of what they experience and the ways that a knowledge of the biological and socio-cultural paths of children’s development and learning, known as ‘schemas’, enables us to think reflectively about planning and provision for learning in the early years.
