IN THIS, HAVEN’S AN­NUAL ED­U­CA­TION EDI­TION, WE THOUGHT IT WOULD BE GREAT TO UNCOVER SOME OF THE BEST DIG­I­TAL RE­SOURCES WHEN IT COMES TO LEARN­ING AND OUR KIDS. HERE’S OUR TOP 5…

LEARN­ING THROUGH PLAY

Learn­ing Through Play is a blog by Heidi, an early years teacher who is pas­sion­ate about play-based learn­ing, sus­tain­abil­ity, cre­at­ing invit­ing spa­ces and pro­jected based learn­ing. The ac­tiv­i­ties on her blog are ex­pe­ri­ences, which she has ex­plored in her class­room with chil­dren aged 3–5 or with her baby god­daugh­ter. Visit www.medium.com/learn­ing-through-play

MISS B’S

Queens­land-based Year 4 and 5 teacher Anika Bezuin­de­hout ("Miss B") pro­vides a gaze into the world of pri­mary school teach­ing with her won­der­ful In­sta­gram page. Be­yond all of the fan­tas­tic ideas for both teach­ers and par­ents, she also posts some of the kids’ work. Find her at @miss­bs_

LIT­TLE LIFE­LONG LEARN­ERS

Casey from Lit­tle Life­long Learn­ers gets what it’s like to be a teacher. She also gets what it’s like to be a mum. This gives her a cred­i­ble per­spec­tive and puts her in a pretty good po­si­tion to give some se­ri­ously use­ful ad­vice. She’s all about en­gag­ing and hands-on ex­pe­ri­ences for lit­tle ones that will set them up for life, from mo­tor skills to sen­sory ac­tiv­i­ties, to good old imag­i­na­tive fun.

THE CYBER SAFETY LADY

As much as we hate to ad­mit it, the days of show­ing our kids how to do ev­ery sin­gle thing are fad­ing quickly away. These days, our kids are likely to know more about the In­ter­net than we do – and that’s a scary thought. Leonie, The Cyber Safety Lady, un­der­stands that the In­ter­net, while a great learn­ing tool and re­source for so­cial­i­sa­tion, is fraught with is­sues that can turn ugly very, very quickly. Her blog has ev­ery­thing the we­bil­lit­er­ate par­ent needs to know to stay in the loop with their chil­dren’s on­line ac­tiv­ity, and we bet it’ll even pro­vide tips for the par­ents who think they’ve got it all cov­ered.
