Language and Literacy Professional Learning Bundle

The ECA Professional Learning Bundles are designed as blended, flexible and self-paced professional learning packages that can be utilised by individuals or teams. Publications can be shared with families and across educator’s teams, webcasts can be viewed with whole teams in staff meetings and online learning modules can be utilised by individual educators. Once purchased services will have access to the online learning for 12 months and will also gain access to the ECA Learning Management System (LMS) to track professional learning and download or print completion certificates. Publications are the services to keep and can be revisited over and over supporting learning and building understanding over time.

Technology and digital media in the early years: Tools for teaching and learning

Technology and digital media in the early years provides strategies, theoretical frameworks, and resources to develop essential digital literacy knowledge, skills and experiences for early childhood educators in the digital age.

Technology and digital media in the early years puts educators right at the intersections of early learning, developmentally appropriate practice, children’s media research, teacher education, and professional development practices. Based on current research, this book outlines promising programs and a set of best practices for teaching with technology in early childhood education.

Pedagogical principles, classroom practices, and teaching strategies are presented in a practical, straightforward way informed by child development theory and research on effective, appropriate, and intentional use of technology in early childhood settings. A companion website, click here, provides additional resources and links to further illustrate principles and best practices for teaching and learning in the digital age.

ECA Learning Hub Subscriptions

The ECA Learning Hub creates online professional learning that is self-paced, quality-assured and flexible. The annual subscription unlocks a comprehensive range of professional topics, all designed to help you meet the National Quality Framework. Your subscription includes all online modules and on-demand webinars currently on the ECA Learning Hub (excluding some third party or partner developed content), plus each new module released during your subscription period.

Subscription accounts are easy to use and update. The Learning Management System (LMS) gives you a personal training record that you can access and print—you can even add training completed elsewhere to keep your records in one place.

The online modules are designed for individual learning; each member of your team will have access to their own modules and webinars. When a module is completed, use your self-reflective notes (which you can print out) as a basis for team discussion.
