📑 Child-Initiated Play and Learning: Teacher-Framed Documentation and Reflection

Bookmarked Child-Initiated Play and Learning: Teacher-Framed Documentation and Reflection by an author (Technology Rich Inquiry Based Research)

When photos are added there is another layer of documentation to interpret. Photos alone are not enough. Photos with interpretation of learning that includes the voices of the children should provide the teacher with enough data to reflect. The key is to be reflective and to interpret. Take initiative to go beyond making statements that the child enjoyed or had fun during the experience and consider what the child was thinking and what interested the child during the experience being recorded. What was the child curious about?

Diane Kashin highlights that documentation is not about the technology, but rather the reflection and interpretations.
