Integrating STEM-based Play in Early Childhood Education- PDD1069
The 21st century requires us to develop children's critical thinking, problem-solving and resiliency related behaviours. Engaging children in STEM-based play can enable these skills. Research also suggests that children's creativity and inquiry behaviours are enhanced when engaged with a range of traditional and multimodal (text, visual, kinaesthetic, digital touch) ways of playful learning, for example using technologies such as robotic toys.
This program is designed to support early childhood educators/leaders to plan for integrating STEM and technologies such as robotics and coding activities for children’s quality learning outcomes. In this program, you will explore practical ways to engage children in design thinking and problem solving through STEM-based play. Even if you feel 'technologically challenged' you will come away from this program feeling confident and competent to plan for quality STEM/robotics play experiences.
