Quale idea di bambino? Quali azioni educative? Una riflessione incrociata tra Italia e Brasile
In this paper, we set out to examine the concept of child that informs educational activities designed by adults in dedicated spaces. Over years of exchange with a Brazilian university, we have had the opportunity to observe children’s potential for development from a new perspective, while working with teachers and early childhood educators. During a course delivered to PhD students at the Brazilian university, we focused on the importance of observation and documentation, once again emphasizing children’s potential and new ways of conceptualizing care.
