Abstract/Notes: Includes a photograph. Article Text: "La Casa dei Bambini" è stata aperta ieri nel palazzo dell'Educazione. Aperta all'infanzia, aperta alla scienza nuova, aperta alle maestre, aperta alle madri. Il bambino, questa complessa natura in formazione, questa creature racchiudente in sé il nostro passato e il nostro avvenire, è entrato nell'Esposizione con il suo buon sorriso, la sua mente vergine e il suo "io" libero per opera di una grande educatrice italiana, della dottoressa Montessori. Una folla di maestre e madri, di curiosi e di studiosi osservava da fuori della "Casa dei Bambini" la prima lezione che la signorina Helen Parkhurst impartiva a una decina di bambini. "Impartiva" non è esatto, perchè i bimbi agivano volontariamente, liberamente appena avuta una parola che stimolasse le loro attività cercando disciplinarle verso un dato concetto, un dato fatto psicologico, che è poi il primo passo verso l'acquisizione di speciali attitudini mentali e morali. E i bimbi pulivano la mobilia o si baloccavano con speciali oggetti ideati e costruiti con lo scopo di sviluppare un dato loro senso, di affinare una data loro percezione, senza coartare la lore libertà. La signora Montessori, durante la lezione, è rimesta fuori della "Casa dei Bambini", osservando con sapiente occhio materno quanto facevano i bambini. Le lezioni si svolgono dalle 9am alle 12, e i bambini che le frequentano sono una trentina. Il più piccolo ne ha quattro. Questi 30 bimbi sono stati scelti fra 2500 i cui loro genitori avevano chiesto che fossero ammessi alla "Casa dei Bambini".

Abstract/Notes: The present study compares elementary school children from Traditional and Montessori programs. The purpose is to investigate how different educational philosophies and teaching methods affect perceived levels of self-esteem, self-efficacy, prosocial behavior and aggressive behavior in children. The participants in this study consisted of second through sixth grade students who were attending Montessori and Traditional schools since the age of five, or earlier. All children completed the Washington Self-Description Questionnaire (WSDQ), three subscales of the Children's Multi-dimensional Self-Efficacy Scales (i.e., academic achievement, self-regulated learning, & social), the Physical and Verbal Aggression Scale, and the Prosocial Behavior Scale. No significant differences were revealed between the Montessori and Traditional programs in relation to the children's perceived levels of self-esteem, self-efficacy for academic achievement, self-efficacy for self-regulated learning, social self-efficacy, or prosocial behavior. However, the Montessori children reported significantly lower levels of physical/verbal aggression than the Traditional children. Moreover, as Montessori children develop a heightened ability to work within a group of peers, they seem to develop lower levels of physical/verbal aggression, which was not found among Traditional children. Furthermore, Montessori children's perceived ability to make and keep friends of the same gender was found to significantly improve with increased years in the program, which was not found in the Traditional method. For Montessori children, their perceived ability to work together in a group was found to be positively associated with heightened levels of self-efficacy for academic achievement and self-efficacy for self-regulated learning. Furthermore, the Montessori children's levels of self-esteem were correlated significantly with their perceived levels of self-efficacy for academic achievement and self-efficacy for self-regulated learning. Although Traditional children were also found to gain self-efficacy for self-regulated learning through working together at young ages, as they proceed to higher grade levels, their self-efficacy for self-regulated learning decreased.

Abstract/Notes: We explore the use of video and photo elicitation in a research study undertaken to understand the way in which preschool teachers perceive and construct their provision of children’s educational experiences. We explore the value of visually elicited interviews based on video footage and photographs captured during teaching and learning in four classrooms in two preschool settings in Kenya. Through visually elicited interviews, both the teachers and the researcher constructed meaningful conversations (interviews) to explore preschool teachers’ practical experiences and their beliefs, understanding and interpretation of developmentally appropriate educational practices. This paper targets the possible value of and contribution made by visual data generation procedures, as well as their inherent challenges, in order to add to the body of knowledge on visually elicited interviews.
