Lim, S. M. Y., & Lum, C. H. (2012). Creating polyphony with exploratory web documentation in Singapore. Australasian Journal of Early Childhood, 37(4), 123-126.
We introduce and reflect on Images of Teaching, an ongoing web documentation research project on preschool teaching in Singapore. This paper discusses the project’s purpose, methodological process, and our learning points as researchers who aim to contribute towards inquiry-based professional learning. The website offers a window into some Singaporean ways of working with young children in preschool settings; it contains video examples of authentic classroom teaching, contextualised with teacher reflections, artefacts, and interview transcripts. Based on two years of reflection and research meetings, we discuss four key learning points: a) utilising the affordances of web technology to create heteroglossia; b) the need to diversify ‘best practices’; c) encouraging dialogue and interrogation; and d) the need to see ourselves as knowledge brokers.
