Mosaic: A Portrait of Early Learning, is a mobile online platform designed for early childhood services using Aistear the Early Childhood Curriculum Framework. Mosaic is a quality practice system that supports Educators to meet their professional responsibilities around the documentation of children’s early learning and care. It is designed to maximise partnership with parents through timely two-way communications and information sharing.
The mobile platform will allow Educators to compile and share with parents, a progressive record of children’s learning and development using the Learning Story Approach. Framed around Aistear themes and goals, the uniquely designed functions of Mosaic will allow the Educator to compile a Leabhar Scéalta (Storybook) for each child. Each Leabhar Scéalta will contain a variety of Learning Stories, photographs, short videos, samples of children’s work and recorded learning achievements. Over time, this builds an informative picture unique to each child which is shared with parents in real time. Educators can also maintain a Daily Care Log for the care of children 0-3 years and send individual and group communications to parents.
