Resumé

The theoretical basis for the presentation sees people as fundamentally active social beings, which means, for example, that when we wish to understand the actions of an individual child, we must understand those actions by looking at what other children and adults around that child are doing. Against this basis it becomes relevant to address the concept of communities, as a useful concept for children’s participation and learning in and across the various institutional contexts in which they find themselves. We need concepts allowing us to focus on how children participate and link their participation in different places – and how through their involvement they develop the ways they participate”. The question is not whether children are social beings but how the social dimension is acted out and acquires meaning.

This presentation is concerned with ways in which children’s social lives appear to have meaning and with children’s subjective orientation in the ECEC. The presentation covers on the one hand the presentation of the principal findings of different research projects in ECEC and on the other a more detailed exploration of the concept of communities, including definitions of what children share and of how what they share links to what adults arrange for them. It also presents arguments for how a social approach to children’s issues paves the way for more productive measures than an individual approach offers.

In Denmark the legislation of ECEC is renewed and the concept of children’s communities and the context for children’s learning is a central part of the new curriculum. This presentation will present some of the research and theoretical thoughts that has inspired the new common pedagogical basis in Denmark.
