  5. 5. What is going on out there? - What does it mean for children's experiences when the kindergarten is moving their everyday activities into the nature - landscapes and its places

    Author : Kari-Anne Jørgensen; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []

To do so I made an empirical study focusing on the children’s own experiences by asking the questions: What is going on out there? What does it mean for the children’s experiences when the kindergarten is moving their everyday activities into the nature-landscapes and places? In exploring these questions a critical approach on the educational ideas of this practice is implicated. READ MORE
