The NEST - Network of Staff and Teachers in Childcare Services project would be glad if organizations dealing with Early Childhood Education and Care would join the international blog and bring in some success stories.

The NEST International Group is an opportunity for members to exchange in English language with foreign colleagues in four forums: the first is for a quick introduction, one is dedicated to Questions and Answers (Q&A), one for presenting Success Stories that speak about practices that are noteworthy and significant and the final one is one of the selected topic for the NEST workshop at the EDEN Conference: Support to Early Educators to Face Contemporary Issues: Media Education and Values (Session A5).

As for success stories, we are particularly interested in: Policy in ECEC, Quality in ECEC; Continuous training of ECEC staff, Exchange with peers on educational materials/tools and on daily didactical routine; How to deal with parents; children with special needs.

To contribute you have to register to our multilingual platform.

NEST OFFER: we created a pool of resources of ECEC related documents and good practices. This NEST Library contains resources in eight languages (English, Italian, Spanish, Slovenian, Greek, Finnish, German and Hungarian and can be searched by the age relevance or using pre-set keywords. The Library is constantly growing as the whole NEST Community can submit resources.

As the project is in its final stage we are happy to offer this resource pool to other relevant initiatives.

Discussion went around the topic of how to develope solutions for disadvantaged and where can ICT help.  Experience and ideas were exchanged about obstacles of innovations, the possibility of reaching successful results. The main question was:    

What is a good model of change?

                Change is in the process, not in the final result. When you have the product of the project the project is finished. The value is in the project run itself, when you meet people, work together on a certain topic, looking for solutions and changing attitudes, learning from each others’ failures and successes, opening up eyes, raising awareness...

Dimensions of success:

 

  •  locating the real problem to be addressed 
  •  always look for the context: the same ICT skill can be advantage and disadvantage in different cultures
  •  a question must be asked: are we sure that ict is the best tool?
  • grass-root level to be encouraged
  •  policy level to be involved
