Mediated Learning Experience (MLE)

MLE is a quality of human interaction between the stimulus and the organism and its response.

In the school context it's the total communication between the student and the teacher. As this is an introductory workshop participants will be exposed to the theory, the processes and the outcome of an efficient MLE experience. MLE introduces the core features of the universal parameters of interaction and the associated conditions for a dynamic teaching and learning interaction. Future workshops will explore in depth practical applications of MLE and its benefits.

BARRIERS TO WRITING AND WHAT CAN HELP

A workshop for Learning Assistants and Teacher Aides working with struggling writers

Thursday 16th June

11am-12.30

Presented by Catherine Alpe and Jill Watson

Please register with Catherine catherinea@rtlbcluster8.ac.nz

Most children enjoy writing about their experiences and thoughts but for some this is a challenging and sometimes fearful task. Being able to write requires a huge toolkit of skills from language and vocabulary skills to handwriting and spelling! No wonder some children avoid the task and have poor self-belief about themselves as writers.

This workshop will explore the challenges of writing and present ideas about what can help.

Suitable for TAs in primary, intermediate and secondary schools.
