Event description
A seminar exploring digital storytelling for early childhood education and a progressive approach to ECEC professional reflection

About this event

Practice-based research matters for early childhood education and for the professional development of early childhood educators. It is also a distinctive feature of our culture and the programmes we offer at the Centre for Education and Lifelong Learning, National College of Ireland. Join us in-person to share in our practice-based research in digital storytelling and progressive mindful reflection and to hear about the opportunities for early childhood educators to conduct practice-based research on our Master of Arts in Educational Practice.

Session Chair: Anna Barr, CELL, NCI

Part one of the seminar, hosted in association with PLÉ, focuses on our work in digital storytelling and gives you the opportunity to explore digital technology as a pedagogical tool. During this interactive, hands-on session, facilitated by Dr Marianne Undheim and NCI students, you will be guided through an experiential process to co-construct an animated digital story and explore the educational use of animated digital stories in the Irish context and beyond.

Presenter: Dr Marianne Undheim, Associate Professor and Lecturer at the University of Stavanger, Norway

Contributors:

  • Karine Mcmahon, Early Childhood Education & Care Student, NCI
  • Lisa Glyn, Early Childhood Education & Care Student, NCI

Part two of the seminar focuses on our work on progressive mindful reflection as an approach to reflective practice grounded in Vygotsky’s theoretical ideas. During this session, you will be guided through an experience of mindful reflective practice and have the opportunity to share ideas and experiences related to reflective practice in education.
