In den letzten Jahren haben sich die Rahmenbedingungen fur Bildung und Betreuung im Elementarbereich grundlegend gewandelt. Politisch gewollt sind mehr Betreuungsplatze fur Kinder unter sechs Jahren, der Ausbau der Fruhforderung als Konsequenz aus PISA und die fruhzeitige Integration von Migrantenkindern in ein deutschsprachiges Umfeld. Aber auch die Wissenschaft zeigt ein gesteigertes Interesse am Thema fruhe Kindheit. Das Buch beleuchtet zentrale Aspekte der aktuellen Diskussion zur Neuausrichtung der Elementarbildung und -erziehung: von den veranderten gesellschaftlichen und politischen Anforderungen, uber die Neuansatze in der Fruhpadagogik bis hin zu den Strategien zur Gestaltung von Kindergarteneinrichtungen. Der Band richtet sich so an alle Padagogen, die sich theoretisch, aber auch praktisch mit der Bildung und Betreuung der unter 6-Jahrigen befassen.
Ethnography has established itself as a key strategy of qualitative research in education, because it is so versatile, flexible, and ambiguous. Its growing importance coincides with an increasing diversity of »discovered« educational realities. In the process, many basic assumptions have turned into genuine tasks of research. Where are the places and times of learning, education, and social work to be found? Who are the actors and addressees? How are education and learning performed and enacted? The contributions to this volume discuss the multiple challenges that ethnographic research has to confront when exploring the multimodality, plurality, and translocality of educational realities.

Sowohl theoretische als auch empirische bedeutsame Forschungsfelder und Fragestellungen werden vorgestellt. Die vielfältigen Beiträge ermöglichen einen interdisziplinären (Ein-)Blick. Es entsteht so eine systematische Zusammenfassung wesentlicher analytischer Ansätze und Felder der Pädagogik, der Frühen Kindheit und der Kindheitsforschung insgesamt.
In a context of widespread expansion of education and care provision for young children, the staffing of early childhood services in Europe is a critical quality issue. However, systematically assembled data across countries on the education/training and structure of the early years workforce are limited. Who works in education and care settings for young children? What professional studies are required? How similar or how varied are the qualification profiles and fields of work? This book provides answers to these questions. With funding from the German Federal Ministry for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth, the SEEPRO project based at the State Institute of Early Childhood Research (IFP) in Munich/Bavaria worked closely with country experts to develop the 27 country profiles. In addition, cross-national perspectives and key workforce issues are highlighted which will be of interest for those engaged in early years professional education/training as well as for researchers, practitioners and policy makers.
Referat (Handout) aus dem Jahr 2009 im Fachbereich Pädagogik - Kindergarten, Vorschule, frühkindl. Erziehung, Universität Bremen, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Das Verfahren der „Lern- und Bildungsgeschichten“ wurde ursprünglich unter dem Namen „learning stories“ von Margaret Carr Ende der 1990er Jahre in Neuseeland entwickelt. Ihr Ziel war es ein adäquates Verfahren für die Beobachtung und Beschreibung von Lernerfolgen in der Alltagspraxis zu finden. Dabei standen die individuellen Lernprozesse der Kinder im Vordergrund, um das Verständnis für Bildungs- und Lernwege der Kinder zu fördern. Mit „Lern- und Bildungsgeschichten“ meinte M. Carr auch ursprünglich schon Erzählungen und Geschichten vom Lernen eines Kindes, das man zuvor beobachtet hat. Die anschließende Beschreibung dient dann zum Festhalten von Handlungen der Kinder in bestimmten Situationen und den Aspekten, die der/die ErzieherIn davon wahrgenommen hat. Diese beschriebenen „Momentaufnahmen“ aus dem Leben der jeweiligen Kinder erzählen etwas über die Bildungsinteressen und Bildungswege des beobachteten Kindes zu dieser Zeit.1 [...] 1 Nach Leu, H.R., Flämig.K., Frankenstein, Y., Koch, S., Pack, i., Schneider, K. & Schweiger, M.

Author: Margaret Carr, Wendy Lee
Shortlisted for the 2013 Nursery World Awards! Margaret Carr's seminal work on Learning Stories was first published by SAGE in 2001, and this widely acclaimed approach to assessment has since gained a huge international following. In this new full-colour book, the authors outline the philosophy behind Learning Stories and refer to the latest findings from the research projects they have led with teachers on learning dispositions and learning power, to argue that Learning Stories can construct learner identities in early childhood settings and schools. By making the connection between sociocultural approaches to pedagogy and assessment, and narrative inquiry, this book contextualizes Learning Stories as a philosophical approach to education, learning and pedagogy. Chapters explore how Learning Stories: - help make connections with families - support the inclusion of children and family voices - tell us stories about babies - allow children to dictate their own stories - can be used to revisit children's learning journeys - can contribute to teaching and learning wisdom This ground-breaking book expands on the concept of Learning Stories and includes examples from practice in both New Zealand and the UK. It outlines the philosophy behind this pedagogical tool for documenting how learning identities are constructed and shows, through research evidence, why the early years is such a critical time in the formation of learning dispositions. Margaret Carr is a Professor of Education at the University of Waikato, New Zealand. Wendy Lee is Director of the Educational Leadership Project, New Zealand.
This book makes explicit connections between young children's spontaneous repeated actions, and their representations of their emotional worlds. Drawing on the literature on schemas, attachment theory and family contexts, the author takes schema theory into the territory of the emotions, making it relevant to the social and emotional development strand in early childhood education. Based on research carried out alongside children, parents, workers and co-researchers at the world-famous Pen Green Nursery, and using case studies of a small number of individual children, the author shows new links between cognition and affect. The book includes a brief summary of a method of Child Study, using video and reflections on video sequences. This book will be of interest to students and practitioners on Early Childhood undergraduate and postgraduate courses, as well as those taking modules on schema theory.
`This is an invigorating and very thought-provoking text, that I would recommend to all early years professionals, parents and citizens interested in developing their understanding of early years philosophy in action, which is directly linked to a compelling research paradigm and deep reflection alongside a sound theoretical base' - Early Years `I would recommend this book to practitioners interested in reflecting on their own practice and approach to assessment. The insights provided are thought-provoking and promote a practical and positive approach to early years assessment' - Early Talk `This thoughtful book challenges the standard assessment process that is commonly employed within the context of early years provision. For any practitioners working in early years setting this is a powerful and exciting book that helps to remind us that the child must be placed centrally within the assessment process, not as a recipient but as a proactive contributor to the situation'- Child Language Teaching and Therapy `This is a highly relevant text as some UK early childhood educators become engulfed with avalanches of tick sheets! A most useful book which contributes to the current vital debate about when, what and how we should access young children's progress' - T.A.C.T.Y.C Newsletter `I found Margaret Carr's book fascinating... the ideas and arguments put forward are well worth mulling over' - Early Years Educator `This is an inspiring book from bilingual, bicultural New Zealand about revolutionizing the assessment of young children's learning and progress.... I hope this book inspires United Kingdom practitioners to set out on learning story journeys' - Nursery World `This book manages to blend recognized theory and recent research with practice. I found it easy, and sometimes enjoyable, to read; it provided plenty of "food for thought" as well as references on "how to". I would recommend it to all early childhood practitioners, not just those considering their current assessment procedures, as the chapters focusing on the child as a learner are of value on their own' - Julia Browne, Goldsmiths Association for Early Childhood This book shows that an early childhood setting can be described as a learning place in which children develop learning dispositions such as resilience in the face of uncertainty, confidence to express their ideas, and collaborative and thoughtful approaches to problem-solving. These dispositions provide the starting point for life-long learning. The author asks: How can we assess and track children's learning in the early years in a way that includes learning dispositions and avoids the pitfalls of over-formal methods, whilst being helpful for practitioners, interesting for families, and supportive for learners? The book - describes a way of assessment that stays close to the children's real experiences and provides an alternative to mechanistic and fragmented approaches, - shows how practitioners can assess what really matters: those learning dispositions (interest, involvement and perseverance for example) that provide a foundation for life-long learning. The book is about weaving theory and practice: theorizing development and learning as reflected in assessment practice. The author also argues that unless we find ways to assess complex outcomes in early childhood they will be excluded from the teaching and the learning. Simple and low level outcomes and goals will take their place. The theoretical ideas and arguments are illustrated throughout by transcripts and stories of children in a range of early childhood settings. At every turn in the journey it asks: How is this reflected in a real life context? It documents the voices of children, practitioners and parents as the learning story develops.
This book provides new insights into how interactions in early childhood education are being studied, and into what these studies’ findings mean for improving the quality of early childhood education. The editors examine the methods, ethics, practices, and questions arising from such close work with children, families and educators, and have brought together a collection that highlights interactions research and practical implications for early childhood education and research, with the ultimate aim of shaping quality practices. Starting with an overview of interaction research and its pedagogical value in early childhood education the book subsequently introduces new interaction studies in early childhood from Europe and Australasia. Drawing from a range of perspectives and using different conceptual and methodological tools the contributors use their interactions research to comment collectively on process quality in early childhood education, and its relationship to the phenomenon of pedagogical interactions. The work as a whole bridges the gap between practice and research by addressing quality interactions for early learning (for practitioners) and providing researchers valuable information on methods for studying interactions within the everyday contexts of early childhood education.
