JOIN US FOR A SYMPOSIUM TO SHARE RESEARCH AND LESSONS LEARNT FROM A COMMUNITY OF PRACTICE MODEL TO FAST-TRACK CHILD WELL-BEING OUTCOMES FOR EARLY GRADE LEARNERS IN OUR SCHOOLS 

现已开放报名,并免费出席  

 

The South African government recently adopted proposals to reconfigure responsibilities for Early Childhood Development and care. The Department of Education will in future be the lead department in collaboration with the Departments of Social Development and Health. This move places child well-being for early grade learners at the top of the government’s agenda. 面向儿童的联合服务交付模式, 这个家庭, 学校和社区的设想是为了确保儿童得到照顾, 他们学习和发展所需要的支持和服务. Innovative evidence-based solutions that integrate services across these key sectors at a school and community level are needed.

The symposium will share lessons learnt from a Community of Practice (CoP) to overcome the fragmentation in service provision for early grade learners in schools in disadvantaged communities in Gauteng. The CoP tested and implemented an innovative digital tool to assess children in grades R and Grades one and two in several domains. This resulted in individually tailored interventions and in the tracking of their progress.

这种多学科的团队方法包括教师, 社会工作者, 护士和学校心理学家的评估和干预. 它旨在解决饥饿等问题, 物质匮乏, 父母参与学习, 心理社会健康, caregiver mental health and child health while also improving learning outcomes in maths and language in order to disrupt the cycles of disadvantage in South Africa. The CoP solutions align closely with national goals and the Sustainable Development Goals: poverty, 饥饿, 健康和教育.

This symposium is the culmination of a two-year CoP research and intervention study and a partnership between three research chairs at the 凯时app and the Centre of Excellence in Human Development at the University of the Witwatersrand. 研讨会将汇集研究人员, 从业人员, 公民社会组织, government representatives and policymakers to interrogate what constitutes the most appropriate cross-sectoral interventions to step up child well-being outcomes in the early grades. 凯时app将分享教师的研究结果和经验教训, 社会工作者 and nurses working together and how community-level resources and parents may be mobilised to become more actively involved in their children’s learning.

会议日程将包括下列主题:

  • Findings of child well-being assessments of early grade learners in schools in disadvantaged communities during COVID-19
  • The design and testing of a digital tool to assess children’s performance in maths and language development, 儿童健康和营养, 儿童和照顾者的心理健康, 贫困和饥饿, 获取和使用社区资源和学习困难
