Destabilizing binaries in early childhood education: the possibilities of pedagogical documentation

Kocher, Laurie and Pacini-Ketchabaw, Veronica (2011) Destabilizing binaries in early childhood education: the possibilities of pedagogical documentation. In: Beyond binaries in education research. Routledge Research in Education. Taylor & Francis (Routledge), New York, USA, pp. 46-59. ISBN 978-0-415-88512-6


This chapter explores the concept of pedagogical documentation. We think of this as a research-practice tool for unpacking and destabilizing persistent binaries that construct the field of early childhood education.
Specifically, we show, borrowing from existing literature on pedagogical documentation that draws on aspects of postfoundational (in particular poststructuralist and posthumanist) theoretical frameworks, how pedagogical documentation has the potential to create spaces for destabilizing binaries in the very act of practicing researching. We end the chapter by reflecting on possibilities and challenges for future research-practice
directions in pedagogical documentation.
