Multiliteracies and Early Years Innovation: Perspectives from Finland and Beyond brings together internationally renowned scholars to investigate and reflect upon the significance of introducing multiliteracies in the education of children (0 to 8 years old) and the challenge of enhancing professional development opportunities of early years practitioners.
The book brings together curriculum innovation and reform and the changing media ecology of young children's learning lives in a single volume. It provides insights into Finnish early years education in terms of policy, practice and research with a specific focus on the enhancement of children’s multiliteracies. Case studies from around the world explore co-developing practices between researchers and teachers, the development of communities and the ways in which different classroom interventions draw on new kinds of teacher knowledge.
This book will appeal to academics, researchers and post-graduate students with an interest in early years education, literacy education, the sociology of digital culture, school reform, teacher education and comparative education.
