In Focus in 2019: Dynamic Learning Environments

We understand the importance of creating Dynamic Learning Environments, each designed to enable educators to maximise educational outcomes for all children.

From welcoming interiors and multi-purpose classrooms through to outdoor spaces designed to engage children in the wonder of natural world, today’s versatile and innovative learning spaces provide the critical foundation for a child’s social, emotional and academic development.

We believe that the creation of these flexible spaces enables educators to pivot seamlessly between teaching opportunities and to ultimately to be responsive to children’s educational needs.

It is this understanding underpins our approach to building and resourcing Dynamic Learning Environments - from a simple room refurbishment, through to complex greenfield projects on a national scale.

In Focus in 2019: Developing Emotional Intelligence

In Focus: Developing Emotional Intelligence

“Emotional Intelligence is broadly defined as being able to recognise, understand and self-manage our emotions. It is just as important as a child’s academic ability and in fact, is a better predictor of happiness and success in life.”

— Dr. John Irvine (B.A.; Ph.D; MAPS; MACE)

 

Resonating deep within our own philosophies, these words, written by renowned child psychologist, Dr. John Irvine, have never had more meaning. In a world that is so dynamic, fast paced and complex, children are expected to be adequately emotionally equipped to deal with increasing challenges. 

The Early Years Learning Framework guides us to assist children to become strong in their social and emotional wellbeing. To us, this means allowing children to recognise, understand and self-manage emotions, producing higher levels of resilience and increasingly positive academic outcomes (Bloffwitch & Irvine, 2018).

The frameworks to guide best practice on emotional intelligence are countless. Comprehensive resources to support the child are, however, not as widely available or understood. It’s why we make it our mission to acquire and develop specialised resources that explore the gamut of ever changing emotional intelligence topics. We recognise identity and indigenous perspectives, just like respect and resilience or agency and autonomy all have a role to play in our daily emotional endeavours, journeying children across the wider curriculum.

 

Educational Experience encourages educators to challenge and excel current understandings of social and emotional learning, digging deeper, pushing harder, and looking longer for educational opportunities in every interaction. Before long the prospect of identifying and extending this learning will become apparent, giving you the chance to trust our resources to help you take learning to the next level.  From all-inclusive kits complete with evidence based research such as the WorryWoos™ Developing Emotional Intelligence Programme, to resources that provide endless opportunities on simple subjects such as interacting with others, Educational Experience is relentless in its pursuit of developing the emotional intelligence of our most valuable resource; our children.
