Pedagogical narration or learning stories at their simplest are recordings through video, photos or the written word of ordinary moments of a child's day. We use pedagogical narrations as a way to make children's learning visible to everyone. They are used as a tool to reflect on the children's understanding of the world around them, the theories they are developing about the world, and our practice as educators.
Through the process, we ask questions, make observations and explore theories. This practice enables us to create a curriculum and program that reflects the children's interests and to make learning relevant to our student's immediate lives. Making children's learning visible through this process results in a deeper respect for children's competencies, creativity and knowledge.
Check out the video below where teachers describe the process and how it is transforming and rejuvenating their teaching practice.
