Working With Families In Uncertain Times - Using Educa

About this event

In these difficult times with centres are having to react quickly to changing circumstances and government guidelines. In addition, educators want to accommodate varying and changing family preferences.

In these times, it's more important than ever that teachers and families are connected and on the same page.

This is not only for logistics reasons. If families and teachers share a well-defined understanding of the learning strands being worked on, there is more chance of consistency for children wherever they are.

Learning stories are a wonderful vehicle for sharing this kind of learning vision and Educa is an online platform perfectly suited to this need.

In this workshop, Allyson Montana will review tips and tools on Educa to help families and teachers work together in these unsettling times. The workshop will include:

  • Writing Learning Stories that share teaching, learning and vision
  • Writing Learning Stories that elicit responses
  • Family stories - tips for parents and how teachers can add a learning analysis
  • Using groups to manage different attendance scenarios
  • Using message boards and parent volunteers for communications
  • Using forms to help manage your centre

There will be a chance to share your own best practice and to ask questions at the end of the webinar.
