1st Philippine Summit on Early Childhood Education

It was indeed a privilege for me to be a part of the first philippine summit on early childhood education which was held at fort bonifacio in taguig last november 5 and 6, 2009. There were many insights and realizations presented in the series of lectures that we had, and I must say, this summit is like taking up the entire course of ECE in one sitting!

With one of the distinguished speakers, Dr. George Morrison. Among his lectures include, The New Kindergarten Teacher, Trends in Early Childhood Education, Best Practices in Early Childhood Education, and Political and Social Contexts for Best Practices and Trends

With Dr. Laura Benson. Her topics include What Growing Readers need to Learn, Best Practice Instruction, Assessment of Reading and Growth, and Launching Readers

Some of the instructional materials and activites suggested that will make reading fun and challenging to the readers. Altogether, they make kids understand and think about what they read to make connections to their everyday life.

On the next series of entries that I will posting on this blog will be rich with information and details about the topics that we have taken up in the summit, that will surely be helpful for those teachers who are into the field of ECE. So, you can watch out for that. :D
