In Focus in 2019: STEAM

STEAM in 2019
STEAM

Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) disciplines have become the focus of nationwide educational, political and financial focuses, with funding grants, specialist pilot programs and academic research illustrating the importance of these areas in fostering children’s innovative and creative abilities.

Now, more than ever, we are seeing the emergence of pioneering industries requiring more critical thinking, more creativity and more multidimensional learning. These industries are full of the problem solvers, the dreamers and the big thinkers addressing some of the world’s most complex problems, and making us as efficient and effect as possible in our daily lives.

 

The foundations for these industries are built in the Early Years, through the concepts of STEAM, and have been embedded into daily practice for many years. The difference now, and to us, is how we can stimulate and motivate you to confidently plan for, and observe, STEAM at work.

In 2019, Educational Experience will provide you with STEAM inspiration through our dedicated Engage. Inspire. Extend website feature, showcasing expert articles and specialist resource recommendations from new and existing ranges, all to prepare you, your classroom and your children for these economies of the future.

As the early years sector continues to grow and develop, so too does our focus on the most prominent pedagogical and educational efforts.

Now, more than ever, we are seeing the emergence of innovative industries requiring more critical thinking, creativity and multidimensional learning. The foundations for many of these industries are built in the Early Years, through the concepts of STEAM. This year, Educational Experience has moved to the next level to ensure we supply you with what you need and more to get your STEAM curriculum sorted.

Equally as important as STEAM, in our pursuit of supporting childhood development, is emotional intelligence. While the frameworks to develop best practice are countless, comprehensive resources to support the child are not as widely available or understood. It’s why we provide practical tools across all categories to support the emotional endeavour, from holistic, evidence-based resources such as the WorryWoos™ Developing Emotional Intelligence Programme, to resources that focus on dimensions of emotional intelligence such as identity and indigenous perspectives.

This year, we are committed developing, supporting and rewarding the sector that gives so much to our community. Come with us as we continue to support children to play, grow and learn.

Inclusion and Wellbeing: Australia Day

Australia Day

“Promote in all children a strong sense of who they are and their connectedness to others – a shared identity as Australians…”  - Belonging, Being and Becoming, The Early Years Learning Framework for Australia, page 23. A strong sense of individual identity can be supported through activities that promote and advance collective identities; Australia Day is one of those days that acts as an important time for early childhood educators to embrace the local community and most importantly engage parents in the celebration of our share identity.
