Description

Pedagogical Documentation in Reggio Inspired Education: A powerful tool for improving understanding, communication and professional growth workshop aims to explore how the methodology of pedagogical documentation can help educators make intentional choices pertinent to the learning processes and desires of children/students, and to share the choices with them. The two-day workshop will consider how pedagogical documentation can accompany the meaning of assessment from a social constructivist perspective seeing as essential the need to interpret the observations and the documents we gather with other colleagues. The focus of the workshop will be to reflect and study upon the traces that children offer to us through their words, their actions, and interactions as well as through their artifacts to view pedagogical documentation as co-construction of knowledge which includes the cycle and recycle of discourse-design-documentation.

Objectives At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Analyze the purpose of pedagogical documentation
  • Articulate the necessity and importance given to observation and listening for pedagogical documentation
  • Hypothesize about the children’s interests and understandings through pedagogical documentation in dialogue with colleagues
  • Understand and demonstrate the possibilities and limitations of the tools used in documenting

Outline Day 1: How do we define pedagogical documentation? A social constructivist perspective

  • Introducing ourselves as a community of learners
  • Looking at human cognition and learning as social and cultural rather than an individual phenomena
  • How we come to know and understand as opposed to deterministic ways
  • Reflecting upon the cycle of discourse-design-documentation
  • Making hypotheses through viewing examples of pedagogical documentation

Day 2: Personal/Group experiences of pedagogical documentation

  • Participants will experiment pedagogical documentation with three aspects in mind: What is our purpose? What is our message? Who is our audience?
  • Interpreting our observations and documents we have gathered with other colleagues
  • Reflection on how the methodology of pedagogical documentation can be incorporated into each of our learning contexts

Methodology

This workshop will incorporate both presentation on the foundations of pedagogical documentation as derived from the educators of Reggio Emilia, viewing examples of pedagogical documentation and collaborative hands-on experiences taking part in the process of documenting. Participants will have the opportunity to share and reflect upon their learning through the pedagogical documentation they will co-construct with colleagues. Participants are asked to bring along a device, such as a digital camera, smart phone or tablet to take images as part of the documentation process.

Target Audience Early Childhood Educators, Elementary Teachers, Administrators
