Digitally doing Reggio: Mobilising posthuman pedagogical knowledge co-creation with socially mediated performativities of Early Childhood Education.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle (journal)peer-review

Abstract

Through this art-based paper, I bewilder the ‘pioneering’ approaches of Reggio Emilia by troubling how pedagogies mobilise through social media. With research-creation and posthuman theories, I notice a human-more-than-human digital entwinement inter-related with academic performativity. Whilst media lends itself to the sharing of pedagogical aesthetics, meanings can be redacted and partial when entangled within hypercapitalised economies. I contend that mediated performativities both reduce and produce. Whilst the brevity of social mediation can over-simplify, digital doings can be productive. I posit that how media is configured matters, and its mobilisation co-creates pedagogical knowledge as a constantly evolving cultural and critical pedagogy
