Children with high academic potential
A subproject in SKOLEKLAR concentrates on identifying children with high academic potential. This project was presented at the 13th International ECHA Conference in Munster, Germany in September 12 - 15, 2012.
Testing and observation in kindergarten
During the last years there has been an increasing focus on documenting children's development in kindergarten. Arlene Gjestgjevarstad Thorsen holds a preschool teacher education and has a Masters degree and PhD degree in special education. We asked her about her thoughts and experiences related to the observation of children's development in kindergarten.
Quantitative research in kindergarten
In the Norwegian Research Council program UTDANNING2020 it was a strong emphasis on the desire to strengthen the quantitative research in the educational field. Professor Edvin Bru at the Center for Behavioral Research has for many years researched and published research based on quantitative studies. We asked him about what could be the benefits by strengthening the quantitative research in Norwegian kindergartens.
