Portfolioarbeit im europäischen Vergleich - das Lernen der Kinder von Beginn an individuell begleiten
Start date: Jan 24, 2015, End date: Feb 15, 2015 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Translation: Working with portfolios has become a big issue in pedagogical work of Austrian kindergarten groups, depending on the responsible carriers- especially in Vienna and Lower Austria. There are different ways of using portfolios- some are more detailed than others, but all focus on the main question: How can those written documents become an individual companion of the children’s learning processes? The aim of this project is to show the students current topics of kindergarten work and also to raise their awareness of diverse aspects of portfolio work throughout different institutions. Some work more intensively than others, which is determined by factors such as the role of man, the personal role of teachers and the current status of pedagogy and didactics. Therefore it is crucial for our pupils to gain experience in England and Finland to see similarities and differences when working with children of the same age. Project aims The students get the chance to… • …have an insight into the work of different international educational facilities • …learn about new concepts and methods about portfolio acquisition. • …experience, how portfolios support to observe educational process which then can be recorded • …come to know that portfolios are a medium to achieve sustained education • …get to know about the significance of life-long- learning • …find out that portfolios foster resources and open up new vistas • …learn about the meaning of portfolios in integrative and activity-oriented learning Number of Participants/ additional information about students: 20 pupils of 4th upper- grade can take part in the project in which they make a practical training in selected kindergarten groups, for three weeks.
