Join Jessica Staines, Director of the Koori Curriculum for a live webinar on "Aboriginal Storytelling in Early Childhood, a virtual session designed exclusively for early learning educators who wish to deepen their understanding and integration of Aboriginal culture into their educational practices.

This webinar, led by Jessica Staines, a renowned early childhood educator and Director of the multi- award-winning Koori Curriculum, offers a rich exploration of storytelling, sharing, and the significant role of stories as pedagogy in Aboriginal ways of knowing, being and doing. 

This session will include:


Unpacking Acknowledgments of Country Through Story Sharing: Learn to conduct meaningful Acknowledgments of Country.

Aboriginal pedagogy: Learn how to use story sharing as a way to teach through culture and not about it.

Yarning Circle Insights: Explore how to use Yarning Circles effectively to foster a deeper connection and understanding among children.

Resource Building: Develop skills to curate a holistic First Nations library and understand the appropriate use of Dreaming stories, ensuring respectful and authentic integration of Aboriginal narratives.

Curriculum Content: Learn how to bring First Nations stories to life. 

 
Benefit from Jessica Staines' extensive experience and passion for enhancing cultural confidence and capacity among educators, enriched with personal anecdotes and proven strategies that respect and uplift Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures.

By participating, educators will not only expand their educational repertoire with Aboriginal pedagogies but also fortify their ability to foster an educational setting that truly recognises and cherishes the richness of Aboriginal stories.

Join us to transform your educational practice, deepen your cultural understandings, and commit to a journey of continuous learning and respect for Country and its original custodians.

Outcome 1.1: Children feel safe, secure and supported. This is evident when children, for example tell stories about their family and culture. 

Outcome 1.1: Children feel safe, secure and supported. Educators support this learning when they for example provide culturally safe place where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and children from culturally diverse backgrounds can share their stories about history and culture. 

Outcome 1.2: Children develop their emerging autonomy, interdependence, resilience and agency. Educators support this for example when they share stories of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who have shown agency and resilience and share stories that reflect children’s cultural and family diversity. 

Outcome 1.3: Children develop knowledgeable confident self-identities, and a positive sense of self-worth. This is evident when children for example share stories of Country and Community. 

Outcome 4.2 Children develop a range of learning and thinking skills and processes such as problem solving, inquiry experimentation, hypothesizing, researching and investigating. This is evident when children for example connect their local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community to engage stories about place-based history and culture.
