2012 (English)In: International Journal of Early Childhood, ISSN 0020-7187, E-ISSN 1878-4658, Vol. 44, no 3, 327-340 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

Documentation for pedagogical purposes is an increasingly important practice in Sweden, in Europe, and in the United States. This article focuses on the ethical aspects that need to be addressed in documentation practices in preschool. The empirical material is drawn from the blogs of Swedish preschool teachers who recorded their thoughts on pedagogical documentation while attending a university course on the subject. Today, digital technology (e.g., digital cameras, mobile phones, and tablet computers) make it easy to create visual documentation in the form of moving and still pictures. Moreover, webcams, USB sticks, and interactive whiteboards can be used to share documentation with others, mainly teachers and parents. In the communication process, the documented children are involved to different degrees; however, they are mainly positioned as subjects being looked at. In the discussion, research about children’s role as participants is related to different notions of the child in pedagogy and society. Ideas for the future are also raised.

Abstract [fr]

La documentation a` des fins pe´dagogiques est une pratique qui prend deplus en plus d’ampleur en Sue`de ainsi qu’en Europe et aux E ´ tats-Unis. Cet article sepenche sur les aspects e´thiques dont il faut tenir compte dans les pratiques dedocumentation a` l’e´cole maternelle. Le mate´riel empirique provient de blogs e´critspar des instituteurs d’e´coles maternelles sue´dois qui ont note´ ce qu’ils pensaient dela documentation pe´dagogique lorsqu’ils ont suivi un cours universitaire sur cesujet. Graˆce aux technology nume´riques (appareils-photo nume´riques, te´le´phonesportables et tablettes e´lectroniques), il est aujourd’hui facile de cre´er une documentationvisuelle sous forme d’images fixes ou de vide´os. De plus, on peut utiliser webcams, des cle´s USB et des tableaux blancs interactifs pour partager ladocumentation avec des tiers, principalement les enseignants et les parents. Lesenfants de´crits participent a` divers degre´s au processus de communication; cependant,ils sont essentiellement place´s dans la position de sujets observe´s. Dans ladiscussion, j’utilise des recherches tant sur le roˆle des enfants dans les pratiquesphotographiques que sur le roˆle des technology visuelles a` l’e´cole et leur rapportavec les notions de surveillance afin de de´battre de la ne´cessite´ de tenir compte desaspects e´thiques.

Abstract [es]

La documentacio´n con fines pedago´gicos es una pra´ctica cada vez ma´simportante en Suecia ası´ como en Europa y Estados Unidos. E ´ ste artı´culo esta´enfocado en los aspectos e´ticos que deben abordarse en las pra´cticas de documentacio´n en preescolar. El material empı´rico se extrae de los blogs de maestros depreescolar suecos quienes plasmaron sus ideas sobre la documentacio´n pedago´gicamientras asistı´an a un curso universitario sobre el tema. Hoy en dı´a las tecnologı´asdigitales (por ejemplo: las ca´maras digitales, tele´fonos mo´viles, y ‘‘tablets’’) facilitanla creacio´n documentacio´n visual en forma de ima´genes fijas y en movimiento.Por otra parte, webcams, memorias USB, y las pizarras interactivas pueden serutilizadas para compartir informacio´n con otras personas, principalmente con losmaestros y padres. En el proceso de comunicacio´n, los nin˜os documentados esta´ninvolucrados en diferentes grados; sin embargo, esta´n posicionados principalmentecomo sujetos observados. En la discusio´n, utilizo investigacio´n sobre el rol de losnin˜os en las pra´cticas fotogra´ficas, ası´ como investigacio´n centrada en el papel quejuegan las tecnologı´as visuales en las escuelas y su relacio´n con las nociones devigilancia para discutir la necesidad de consideraciones e´ticas.
