Children are born scientists. From birth, they start exploring their world and building an understanding of how things work and how we communicate. They are ever-curious and have lots of questions. To encourage children’s curiosity and keep up with their questions, educators in early learning settings need to build their own scientific understanding and become knowledgeable co-investigators. This module explores how new media and a podcast by ABC Kids Listen, called Imagine This, can be used by educators to build scientific content knowledge. It also shares some of Dr Nij Lal’s simple scientific explanations, along with a collection of resources to help educators engage effectively in science with young learners.
This course builds on the concept of scientific content knowledge and shares some of Dr Nij Lal’s simple scientific explanations, along with a collection of resources to help us engage effectively in science with young learners.
