Amelia Jaishree, Lead Lecturer, National Institute of Early Childhood Development (NIEC), Ngee Ann Polytechnic

For the past 18 years to date, Amelia Jaishree has been consistently mentoring and training teachers and trainers in the education industry, locally and regionally in the area of language and literacy, and blended learning. Currently a lecturer with the National Institute of Early Childhood Development (NIEC) at Ngee Ann Polytechnic, Amelia teaches pre-service and in-service educators in the Early Childhood related diplomas in Early Literacy subjects such as Children’s Literature, Language and Literacy, Teaching Literacy to Diverse Learners, and Teaching Techniques for Preschool Education, Continuing Education and Training (CET) programmes and Continuing Professional Development (CPD) courses. 

Besides teaching and training, Amelia also develops modules in the area of Language and Literacy, Continuing Professional Development (CPD) courses and blended learning modules. Amelia often conducts workshops for in-service teachers, educators and trainers, parents and the public to share the love for language and literacy, and educating young learners. 

As an advocator for educational technology and literacy for young children, Amelia constantly updates herself with best practices in teaching younger children using technology to create interactive yet meaningful experiences for young children in the classroom. Amelia is currently exploring how augmented reality can be used to support pre-service EC educators in their classrooms to facilitate play that encourages early literacy skills and increase the level of children’s motivation and have a positive impact on their literacy learning experience.

She has also presented at conferences such as the Early Childhood Conference, Asian Festival of Children’s Content (AFCC) and EDUTech Asia Conference.

UDL for Accessible and Visible Learning: A focus on Pre-Service early childhood educators

  • We have observed a wide disparity in attitude and aptitude in English Language proficiency (which is fundamental to becoming an effective early language and literary educator) and general teaching exposure/abilities in our diploma module, which has resulted in challenges relating to engagement, comprehension, and motivation.
  • We aimed towards ensuring accessibility in the learning process through the designing of lessons and the process of teaching so that it would cater to the diversity of student needs.
  • In order to achieve that, we decided to adopt the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) as part of our overarching framework, considering that it is an approach that works to accommodate the needs and abilities of all learners.
