Overflowing Every Idea of Age, Very Young Children as Educators
Johannesen, Nina
Studies in Philosophy and Education, v32 n3 p285-296 May 2013
In this article I explore if and how very young children can be the educators of their early childhood educators. I describe and discuss a story constructed from a fieldwork done in one early childhood setting in Norway. The story is read with Levinas and his concepts Said and Saying. Further I discuss if and how this might be understood as education arguing that the children`s expressions are offering new beginning and change in the pedagogical thinking and praxis within the early childhood setting.
