Engagement and Interaction

A Maamalaha Project with Early Excellence November 2016 – May 2018

This collaborative project has enabled schools to develop an understanding of the Leuven Scales for Well Being Involvement and Adult Engagement and how to:

  1. Use these to develop understanding of children as learners
  2. utilise these as a means for accountability and demonstrating progress
  3. apply the use of these effectively to everyday practice.

Working with Jan Dubiel and Judy Fisher, this Maamulaha project enables teachers to observe, recognise and measure critical aspects that underpin children’s learning and develop strategies for interventions that will impact positively on measurable outcomes.

Building on the success of this project, we are now running a 2 part continuation aimed at embedding, developing and evaluating the process  through action research; in addition to introducing the key principles to Year 1.
