Position: effective educators engage in ongoing reflection and ‘active and critical engagement in learning’

(Arthur, 2010, p.1). these processes of inquiry and critical reflection on their practices enable them to make decisions about curriculum that are responsive to cultural context and support more equitable outcomes for children (Arthur, 2010; MacNaughton & Williams, 2009). Rather than a focus on external standards that codify ‘quality care’, what is important are the processes of critical thinking, self-reflection and evaluation. Moss (2001a, p.131)argues that working with ‘complexity,values, diversity, subjectivity and multiple perspectives’ requires educators to focus on making meaning of what is going on. (Arthur, Beecher, Death, Dockett & Farmer, 2014, p.22)

Defence with  the statements above and include critical analysis of the following:

Different approaches to literacy and numeracy The impact of technology and media on young children The place of ecological sustainability in early….
