Reconsidering our images of children: what shapes our educational thinking?

Janet Robertson

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


    Following early exploration of the challenges of Reggio Emilia’s pedagogical experience to Australia education, in 1992 the author took the position of toddler teacher at Mia-Mia, a not-for-profit child care centre attached to the Institute of Early Childhood, Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia. It was here the author began to explore ‘the image of the child’ from a practical as well as theoretical position, becoming a researcher with children. An earlier version of these ideas was presented as a keynote address at a conference (Robertson, 1996).
