By critical inquiry into contemporary theory, policy and practices, this unit investigates the development of young children's social and cultural understandings. Pedagogical approaches which position young children as active and inquiring local and global citizens, will frame this unit. Topics include diverse socio-cultural identities; sustainable relationships (individuals, families, community and the environment); changing communication and representations due to technology and globalisation.
