    Kutjala- 21st Century~ Song Lines home

    Transition is about knowing, understanding and supporting all our Families from the moment

    they come to us and long after they leave us..

    We know and support our families - if chn don't settle then we suggest we To try tomorrow,

    or next week.we never tear an upset child out of their Families arms, even it they ask

    us to.

    Supporting transition using technology

    Today Teacher Gayle took photos of our 3 little ones, when they settled down and

    emailed each of their Mums to show Mum the what a good time they were having

    It is also about the children who have come before and who journey on and then

    return..The night before Prep begins we send all our little ones an email letter connecting

    them with courage to the new journey and asking them to come back and show us how

    proud they are in their Prep Uniform.there is always a place here.they will always be

    Kutjala bubs

    We weave them a modern Song line home..

    Email

    Newsletters or weekly updates ,

    PowerPoints of childrens learning

    Online portfolios

    Many options to choose from i.e. web based or apps

    Determine the purpose for what works for your community

    Parents like the immediacy of receiving information and

    being kept up to date about their child

    Consider families who may have limited or no access to

    devices or internet

    Every child and family is unique

    one size wont fit all.

    Welcome to the world of 2016.

    Im not sure of process to access.

    It is secure. I dont like other sites where photos can be tagged.

    All in one spot, on one platform.

    It is an individual preference.

    Not used it really though I have looked at financial statements.

    I work away during some weeks so it keeps me up to date.

    It is quite easy to do.

    I can share with others i.e. grandparents.

    Email notification is a useful link.

    There is a clearly labelled pathway so it easy to access.

    I find it useful as I can share with family overseas.

    I check emails everyday so it is easy.

    I only get to drop off in the morning so I find out more when the educators share the group journal in the afternoon.

    I think it is relatively easy to use just have to have username and password handy!

    Considerations when working with

    technology How can I make my communication purposeful?

    What do parents want to know?

    What technology do most families have access to on a

    regular basis?

    How often do I want to communicate with families? Daily?

    Weekly? Monthly?

    What are organisation policies on social media,

    photographing and sharing digital information with

    parents?

    It can be overwhelming as new practices are introduced?

    Once sent cant be withdrawn!

    C&K Jellybeans - Visiting the community

    Shop Excursion In term 3, the children showed their interest in shop play. We developed their interest and created a shop at the centre. It was the Kindy Shop and became a much loved play experience for all. During this project, we developed signs, money and introduced real products into our shop.

    As term 4 started, it was clear that the children were all still very interested in shops. We had a talk about what we could do to learn more about shops. It was decided that we would all love to take an excursion to visit some of the shops in our local community.
