Taihape kindergarten

Challenging Paradigms: thinking about ‘learning’ rather than ‘learnt’:

 

The vision in Te Whāriki of children as competent and confident learners and communicators, healthy in mind, body and spirit, secure in their sense of belonging and in the knowledge that they make a valued contribution to society. This emphasises the importance of children’s constructing identities of themselves, and others, as learners and as active participants in their communities, as fundamental outcomes within their ECE contexts.

 

In Te Manawa,  we highlight this vision statement as embracing a socio-cultural approach to learning and being both identity and action-based.  The emphasis here is not on what children know but how they see themselves and engage as participating, contributing, relating citizens of Aotearoa New Zealand.

 

If we are to promote these outcomes and this vision of children in our ECE contexts then we need to foreground the journey of learning rather than focusing on the end result; what has been learnt.
