Open Listening: Creative Evolution in Early Childhood Settings
Davies, Bronwyn
International Journal of Early Childhood, v43 n2 p119-132 Aug 2011
This article sketches out a philosophy and practice of open listening, linking open listening to Bergson's (1998) concept of creative evolution. I draw on examples of small children at play from a variety of sources, including Reggio-Emilia-inspired preschools in Sweden. The article offers a challenge to early childhood educators to listen and to think and act beyond the status quo.
