Pedagogical Documentation

Teaser Tuesday | BooksAndABeat.comI have not been reading much in the last few weeks while preparing for the presentation I am to do tomorrow. The PD (professional development) session I am presenting to my co-workers is on pedagogical documentation and how to use the Google Apps to document student learning.

I did some reading to find evidence of why documenting our students’ learning is helpful. As I reread an article, a sentence stood out that I had not taken note of before:

“It is not only our students’ thinking that becomes visible through pedagogical documentation, but our thinking as educators becomes visible as well, opening up the possibility for shared reflection on the learning process.” (Capacity Building Series: Pedagogical Documentation, p.2)

I have come to realise that my documentation certainly shows parents what I am thinking and what I am looking for as I observe their children learning.

What are you reading this week? Feel free to share a few sentences from the book in the comments.

  1. I waited so patiently but the link wouldn’t open, Colline. This is an old laptop and sometimes it can’t be bothered! 🙂 So I’ll have to remain in ignorance. Reading Erica James- the real Katie Lavender. Nothing deep but she spins a good yarn 🙂


  2. I think that’s true, Colline. How we react to, and what we say about our students, tells as much about us as it does about them. I hope your PD went well. I have a few books on the go at the moment (it always takes me a while to finish each one!) This week I am reading “A learner’s paradise” about education in New Zealand, and “Weaving Creativity into every Strand in the Curriculum”; both of which are very interesting.


  3. I have the utmost confidence in you that your presentation was outstanding! When one has a certain love for improving others, lives, they are blessed so abundantly in their gift! I know you smiled today and I smile with you Colline! Hugs and blessings!
