Examples Of Holistic Learning In Practice

Post by bubbler12 » Sat Sep 12, 2015 2:04 pm

Task A- Links between learning and developmental domains
The domains of learning, development and well being and naturally interwoven. Educational programs need to reflect a holistic approach, incorporating all aspects of learning, development and well being together (mutually co-existing) as opposed to a program that is divided up into segregated learning areas.
According to the early years learning framework (DEEWR, 2009,p 14) holistic approaches to teaching and learning recognize they pay attention to children's physical, personal, social, emotional and spiritual wellbeing as well as cognitive aspects of learning. Please explain your understanding of interconnection of social, physical, psychological and cognitive development. Provide an example of what holistic learning could look like in practice.

What I have so far:
I dont understand this question

Yes, something like this:
Holistic learning and development involves all areas of development and embraces a view of the whole child developing in the context of family, home and community. Young children do not learn in discrete units; they make connections across their learning with these connections changing and developing with new experiences.

Young children learn from the range of experiences they have in their everyday lives. They don’t naturally compartmentalise this learning. The children’s holistic approach involves them intricately interweaving domains of social, emotional, personal, physical (sensory and motor), cognitive, linguistic, creative, aesthetic, moral and spiritual development, and the whole system of learning processes all of which influence each other in highly complex and sophisticated ways (NCCA, 2004, p. 21).


I got this information from the link I posted above...

Hope this helps,

Okay, so could it be like a child painting a picture and using their gross motor skills to hold onto the paint brush and hand eye coordination to paint the picture ?

You can have a look at our "Activities" page. In each activity it will give you the developmental milestones the child will achieve through the experience as well as linking to the EYLF. You can find a painting activity in "Art and Craft" to give you an idea:
