Sensory Pedagogy: Understanding and Encountering Children through the Senses
Johansson, Eva; Løkken, Gunvor
Educational Philosophy and Theory, v46 n8 p886-897 2014
In the present article we aim to explore the link between Merleau-Pontyan phenomenology and what we call sensory pedagogy. The latter connects to recent sensory ethnography as presented by S. Pink ("Sensory ethnography." London: Sage; 2009). We discuss how these thoughts can be put to work in toddler pedagogy. This kind of sensory pedagogy challenges teachers to understand and encounter children through their embodied mind and senses.
