Learning is Happening Right Before Your Eyes: Seeing and Supporting Infant and Toddler Cognitive Development
November 30 @ 6:30 am - 8:30 pm
This is a two-part training.
|Many adults still think of babies as helpless and simply a “clean slate.” If you watch infants and toddlers closely, you will see that they are engaged in thoughts and actions of discovery and learning in almost every waking moment. These thoughts and actions are the complex learning processes and abilities we will discuss as we define “cognitive development.” We will further describe cognitive development in terms of six different types of discoveries infants and toddlers make when exploring and experimenting with the things and people in their world. Opportunities to apply your knowledge of these discoveries will help you see the learning happening as infants and toddlers are developing cognitively. In the end, you will leave with some strategies and experiences you can use daily to support infant and toddler cognitive development. This training provides information that supports the ITERS-R subscales: Space and Furnishings, Listening and Talking; Activities, Interaction, Program Structure, and NCFELD Domain: Cognitive Development.|
