'Learning to talk, talking to learn.'
Through language we represent our ideas and our knowledge; we negotiate our place in contexts and express our hopes and feelings; we refine and test what we understand in connection with others. Language has many dimensions which interact with reading and writing including meaning, vocabulary, structural conventions, phonology and pragmatics. We express our ideas and receive and respond to the ideas of others though language - it's not surprising that language development is so influential on literacy development. This conference explores key themes in language development and literacy development, pedagogical practices which support children in learning to talk, listen, read and write and the role that talk plays in learning through meaningful interaction with adults and peers.
