Educators use a variety of ways to communicate children's learning with families throughout the school year. The process of pedagogical documentation helps educators in communicating learning with families both formally and informally. The resources shared in this e-course will support you as you use assessment for learning with the Kindergarten children you work with.
We invite your feedback at any point throughout this self-guided course.
2. Pedagogical Documentation
In this section, you will watch a 1.5-hour webcast about making the process of pedagogical documentation come alive.

Possible Next Steps...
How might the process of pedagogical documentation benefit students in other grades? How have the resources in this section prepared you to begin a conversation about pedagogical documentation with your Kindergarten and other Primary/Junior colleagues?
3. Communicating Information
In this section, you will review a learning module in PPT format that focuses on communicating information about children's learning.
A facilitator guide exists to support educator leaders in using the above module to support a professional learning session. This guide and additional learning modules can be found on EduGAINS - Kindergarten, in the "Resources" menu, under the Professional Learning Facilitator tab (see image below).
4. Educator Guide
Communicating with Parents about Children's Learning, a Guide for Educators, is found in EduGAINS - Assessment, on the "Policy Documents and Guides" page. This is the top item of the menu at the left hand side of the Classroom Educator tab.
