Pedagogical documentation is what turns much of our gathered information from merely reporting on events and activities in the children's days into documentation, which helps us notice, understand, and plan effectively for individual children and group learning. It is also the key to making the learning visible. In this webinar, we will focus on documentation that we require as educators, not 'what' occurred, but 'why' it occurred, and what does this mean? We are still documenting the same things; however, we are looking at it with a different lens. This re-focussing of our gaze allows every educator to produce rich, meaningful documentation that brings the learning to life and is also consistent, engaging, and meaningful for educators to create.
