Rethinking Research in Early Childhood: (Re)Turning the Kaleidoscope
Strong Foundations: Evidence Informing Practice in Early Childhood Education and Care
Chapter 21 offers readers with innovative ideas on how to rethink research in ECEC, ways that give rise to new perspectives to contribute to meaning-making. By rethinking research practices in early childhood and by (re)turning familiar ideas and approaches, the authors aim to generate new questions, ways of knowing, doing and acting. Questioning familiar topics and unsettling dominant discourses, they put forward the notion thinking with, rather than thinking about phenomena and what this could look like in practice.
