Open Pedagogy – Opportunities and Limits

Open pedagogy is a relatively new concept in early childhood education. It emerged around 30 years ago, and its influence has continued to grow since then. This is perhaps surprising as it began as a grass-roots movement. But open pedagogy is now being adopted by growing numbers of providers and teams because it has clear benefits and promises an education that is
adapted to children’s interests and needs. However, this growing popularity goes hand in hand with problems. These can be solved if the concept is applied pragmatically.
