Documentation is all around us, yet often we can narrow our approach to more formal observations, which we can over think and over write using the same methods week in and week out. This approach can result in documentation being more difficult than a pleasure to engage.

Exploring the ‘why’ of our approach to documentation will inform the ‘how’ and ‘what’ we document. There is wisdom in thinking about the systems and tools we design for documenting learning so that our approach influences genuine and authentic opportunities for educators to write in meaningful ways. This series will explore conversations to ignite change and reimagine the role that documentation plays in your context through sharing contemporary theories in practice.

This conversation series includes 3 sessions:

  1. Designing documentation – the macro view - Systems that support collaboration, dialogue, research and inquiry
  2. Documenting with children – the micro view - Creating habits of documenting in the everydayness, living displays & agreements
  3. Meaningful Assessment – formative and summative - Learning stories, learning notes and the distance travelled – robust assessment

"Engaging documentation as a pedagogical tool for teaching and learning in real time it acts as a living artefact of thinking with children. We recognise that documentation does not have to finish, but instead be engaged as an on-going living dialogue that weaves together our shared ideas over time……inviting new curiosities, questions and unexpectedness along the way."
