Quality Levycasesteachingnotes feb28 1 between teacher and child form the foundation for a successful and effective early childhood program. It will explore various theories relating to scaffolding and show clear links between these theorists and how they view the teacher as an integral part of learning.
Furthermore, it will show that a positive teacher presence improves learning outcomes for children. Scaffolding is a strategy used by educators to help children reach their goals and extend their learning.
It helps children to achieve a task that may be too difficult for them to just work out on their own. Without this help the child would possibly just give up, viewing the task as too hard for them. It may be something simple like the child needs adult help to guide them how to clip some blocks together to build a tower, if the blocks go together a particular way small children sometimes get very frustrated and without help would give up and stop building, provided with this small amount of scaffolding and they are then able to continue on their building master piece.
This is only one small example, scaffolding comes in many forms and will depend on the age and stage of the child and what they are trying to achieve. Those with some expertise in an area such as the teacher, provide the framework or support that enables children to try out new ideas and lead to a greater understanding.
Scaffolding can be as simple as providing some verbal prompts, or can relate to the more general provision of a supportive learning environment.
Scaffolding, as the name suggests, is the support that is provided for the child to extend their skills and knowledge as they move through the ZPD. Docket and Fleer point out that scaffolding requires certain elements, including a focus on joint problem solving, with the teacher and child both engaged in working through a worthwhile and meaningful activity.
