Please turn the volume up on your computer speakers to access the audio feature of this seminar.
I am aware that many of you are new to online learning and to using computers, so before we get started… lets conduct a quick audio check.
If you can’t hear me, please confirm that the volume on your speakers are on and if you have external speakers confirm that they are plugged in.
If you can’t hear me, please try logging out and back in. This often fixes the problem.
If this does not work – please call Tech Support at 1-866-522-7747
This unit focuses on learning environments that encourage the students to become actively engaged in activities that are similar to their everyday experiences. These experiences encourage the students to be creative and to use their imagination. When students are involved in the learning process and they are able to express their interests, the outcome is a positive one. You also will learn classroom management strategies that will help develop a positive learning environment.
After completing this unit, you will be able to:
Describe a quality early childhood environment
Explain the importance of quality environments
When a child enters the classroom they should see an attractive space. Use your 5 senses to describe it.
Is the space warm and homelike? Share examples…
Are there learning centers?
Name a few…
List a few additional key ingredients for establishing a successful learning environment?
The teacher is one who made two ideas grow where only one grew before.
Thank you for joining me! It has been a pleasure share with you again this evening!
If you ever need anything… email me!
