Abstract

PEREIRA, Helena de Ornellas Sivieri; MAIMONE, Eulália Henriques  and  OLIVEIRA, Aline Patrícia. Evaluation of the profile of a mediational professor of early childhood education. Psicol. Esc. Educ. [online]. 2012, vol.16, n.1, pp. 105-112. ISSN 1413-8557.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1413-85572012000100011.

In this study we examine the mediational profile of an early childhood teacher, based on the Historical-Cultural Psychology; We emphasize the importance of continuous training of teachers. We produced Video recordings of the interaction of teacher with children aged 5/6 years of an institution of Early Childhood Education of Minas Gerais, Brazil. These video recordings were transcribed and approved by the teacher and then analyzed based on the Adult Engagement Scale. This scale examines the personal and professional characteristics that define the interaction capacity of the educator in the teaching and learning:. The teacher showed these characteristics, however, sensitivity and autonomy appear at lower levels, indicating that she has a profile more focused on stimulation of learning. These data provide a basis for future interventions in teacher education from kindergarten.

Keywords : Early childhood education; learning mediation; teacher education.
