Effective, assertive communication can make all the difference in establishing and maintaining positive and professional dialogue with colleagues, parents and other agencies.
This workshop will explore a range of essential elements for effective communication and provide an opportunity to develop skills in listening and delivering a clear message, giving greater confidence in conversation with others.
Suitable for all early years practitioners the day will also explore how these skills and other strategies can be used for successfully managing difficult conversations with a range of stakeholders and colleagues.
Children in the early years are already digital natives and it is often the adults who are playing ‘catch-up’. A challenge we face is how to keep pace with the ever-changing technological world, whilst ensuring other areas of children’s learning are not overlooked.
This session will encourage participants to take a fresh look at the world of technology in early years, consider how to successfully integrate it within the environment and use it as a purposeful tool. During the session we will be discussing what the key skills are relating to technology that children need to master. We will explore the increasing range of technology based resources and look in focus at how these can be used to effectively support learning.
