Theoretical Perspectives

Discussion in 'Early Years' started by lisamichellet, Nov 5, 2018.

  1. Hi everyone

    I am coming to the end of my level 3 in early years education and for my last unit I have to join an online forum to discuss the importance of reflection in relation to professional development, any thoughts, ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Hello,
    I am also finishing up my level 3 and have the same assignment!
    I thought to start I could give my take on how I reflect on my own practice in relation to theoretical perspectives, Firstly I think I find it difficult to 'think on the go' as suggested by Schon's process of continuous learning, constant interruption's in a busy preschool means that I am always able to fully think!
    I find it easier to reflect on incidents/activities after they have happened giving me the opportunity to make assessments on my own practice and look at areas for improvement, what worked well and what didn't.
    As a whole I do believe that practitioners reflect subconsciously throughout the day as all children are unique and require adaptions to activities and level of language used.
