Beyond Zoom: Deep Learning in Early Childhood
Deep learning in early childhood takes place through nurturing interactions with caregivers and meaningful engagement with real-life problems. COVID-19 school closures have led to mass online learning and a corresponding rise in didactic teacher-led instruction that underutilizes children’s learning potential. This presentation will examine the roots of deep learning by exploring early learning in indigenous forager communities in Cameroon and in the Americas. We will redefine “education” away from “schooling” and towards developing independence. We will explore play-based learning, adult roles in facilitating it, and individual versus collective orientations of education through a cross-cultural lens. Participants will gain understanding of diverse learning pathways in early childhood and strategies to support deep learning at home.
