Ep 28 How to Record and Document Children’s Learning

Episode Description

Learning really is a journey. And like a journey it requires planning, recording, sharing and assessing of how it all unfolded.

The map that educators follow as students travel on this journey is usually either Kath Murdoch’s Inquiry Cycle or the 3E model of inquiry, and in order to keep children on track, we provide scaffolds for them that help them in their planning and thinking.

Educators too, record their own observations of the learner’s progress.
In this episode the various strategies for recoding  and documenting students’ learning is unpacked.
