793. Quality Right Before Our Eyes – Capturing and Growing Simple Interactions as the Active Ingredient of Early Childhood Education

Date: Wednesday July 13, 2016
Time: 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM
Location: Grand Salon 24 (1st floor)
Speakers: Junlei Li, Fred Rogers Center

What is deep and simple in the work of early childhood? From orphanages to impoverished neighborhoods, caregivers’ intuitive yet powerful human interactions can be recognized by four essential characteristics: connection, reciprocity, progression, and participation. By capturing and learning from what ordinary people do extraordinarily well in simple, everyday moments, we can grow communities of practice, nurture intuition into intention, and plant the seeds for sustainable systems change. Join us for a “simple interactions” workshop based on authentic field videos, followed by a moderated discussion on how current QRIS systems may support or hinder such interactions.
