Best practices for implementing Pasifika languages and culture in education The roles and attitudes of early childhood educators is an important factor in supporting or hindering learning for young Pasifika children. A culturally responsive pedagogical approach can inspire children to learn and achieve better in education.Pasifika songs and dance contributes, connects and supports the child’s learning and ensures that their interests and confidence is strengthened. A greater sense of belonging and achievement can take place in the early years of learning, when positive relationships are established and the learners are better understood by teachers. This workshop will present the concept of ‘teu le va’ (nurturing relationships) through cultural principles and values as a model of engagement, empowerment and establishing positive and strong partnerships between families, educators and Pasifika children within early childhood settings. With the Pacific Island's language weeks happening every year and often running one after another, you can sometimes get so snowed under that you lose time for planning. We have designed this workshop to support you in implementing each one of the Pacific Island's languages and culture and provide you with a greater understanding for culture, language, customs and traditions. After completion of this workshop you will also receive a 10% discount for all of our language week download kits we sell.
