Abstract

A study about the inter-relational context of four year old children from two preschool education classrooms in the city of Cordoba (Spain) is presented. It is an innovative analysis based on the use of mapping for the registration and description of the systems of activity, communication and grouping in preschool. The results show that there are significant differences in the social structure of participation depending on the type of activity that is taking place and that these differences seem to indicate that the social dynamic promoted by teachers is more rigid and simple, responding to traditional teaching models.

El artículo presenta un estudio sobre el contexto interrelacional de los niños y niñas de 4 años de edad de dos aulas de Educación Infantil de la ciudad de Córdoba. Se trata de un análisis innovador basado en el uso del mapeo (mapping) para el registro y la descripción de los sistemas de actividad, comunicación y agrupamiento en preescolar. Los resultados muestran que existen diferencias significativas en la estructura social de participación dependiendo del tipo de actividad que se esté desarrollando y que estas diferencias parecen indicar que la dinámica social promovida por los y las docentes es más rígida y simple, respondiendo a modelos de enseñanza tradicionales.
