This publication explores Schemas and the characteristics of effective learning. Schemas are important because they make childrens thinking and ideas visible. They can also support childrens abstract thinking.An awareness of schemas will help practitioners to describe, in more detail, the ways in which children are approaching their learning. This makes schemas a very useful learning tool, which will help practitioners to better describe the complexities and the connections in childrens play.
This engaging publication supports practitioners to understand:
- what schemas are
- where they come from
- how they develop
- why they matter
- how practitioners can recognise them and use them to support childrens early learning.
