Inspiring Early Years

Duncraig ELC Year 1 Teacher Mrs Alana Meuleman has received a coveted scholarship to attend educational consultant Matt Glover’s workshop called ‘What’s the Nudge’ in Adelaide.

In the workshop, which is centred on a theme of ‘The Book-making Approach in the Early Years’, Alana will learn about the various kinds of ‘nudges’ that children, aged 3-8, need to help them progress in their learning.

Matt will be joined by AISWA Early Childhood Consultant Deb Martin to workshop the idea that teachers need to find just the right ‘nudge’ for each student. One that is not too easy and not too hard so they are learning just beyond what they can do on their own, which has been proven as the ‘sweet spot’ for learning no matter what age.

There were a large number of teachers who applied for the all-expenses paid trip and we are very proud of Mrs Meuleman for being selected, always striving to learn herself and all of her teaching achievements.
