Abstract

Photos are important for a wide variety of documentation purposes, and they play a special role in documenting physical, cognitive, and social changes in young children. This research focuses on the use of photos as evidence of development in preschool children and as a communication medium for current and future interactions. Through field observations and interviews we analyze the use of photos in the process of developing a detailed portfolio of early childhood development. From the moment of capture to selection, analysis, and sharing, teachers carefully employ the properties of photos to construct and communicate evidence of development. We describe current photo documentation practices and propose a new system to enhance these practices.
