the space we are in building a knowledge object
The space we are inBuilding a knowledge ‘object’
  • Our intellectual journeys:

histories and personal - professional narratives

  • What is meant by ‘knowledge object’?
building this new knowledge object needs and challenges in different communities
Building this new knowledge object Needs and challenges in different communities

NEEDS

  • of academic community: limited research in communication difficulties in multilingual families
  • of service provider community of health, education and social care providers : SLTs, health visitors, educators, ed.psychologists
  • of user-client group: bilingual/multilingual families with children who have communication difficulties
challenges
Challenges
  • Challenges for academic community
  • Challenges for service providers
  • Challenges for bilingual families with children with communication difficulties
scientific and spontaneous concepts
Scientific and spontaneous concepts

Concept

Scientific

concepts

  • Impose on child logically defined concepts
  • Scientific concepts move ‘downwards’ towards greater concreteness
  • Evolve in highly structured and specialized activity of classroom instruction

Mature concepts

Spontaneous

Concepts

  • Concepts emerge from the child’s own
  • reflections of everyday experience
  • Spontaneous concepts move upwards towards greater abstractness
  • Develops in child’s everyday learningenvironment

Object

crossing boundaries
Crossing boundaries

Dissatisfaction between the traditional separation between language acquisition and language socialisation (Kramsch 2002)

Language acquisition: learner as computer

Language socialisation: learner as apprentice

language acquisition
Language acquisition

Key concepts of this perspective through metaphors of language development

  • Acquisition metaphor
  • Participation metaphor
  • Co-construction metaphor
metaphors for culture
Metaphors for culture

Culture as ‘medium’; as a nurturing garden

Cultural psychology

Cross-cultural psychology

Vinden and Astington (2000)

“There is a danger that those who focus on biological [including cognitive] explanations and those who focus on cultural ones cannot even talk to one another because they are grappling with essentially different issues. We hope we are not talking past [other presenters here] but rather initiating a crossing of borders that will eventually lead to the kind of co-operation and transformation that we see as crucial to advancing our understanding”

Key concepts of this perspective

Ochs 2002

“ the marriage between culture and developmental research is uncertain. While culture is considered important to fathom, it is obscure and difficult to analyze. Culture, like God, seems unknowable. Central to understanding the relation of language and culture in human development is long term, rigorous ethnographic observation, recording, description, and analysis of displayed preferences and social actions, and their historical and ontogenetic enduring and changing relation to social identities and activities. Without this ethnographic knowledge, it is difficult to grasp the realms of social meaning that novice and veteran members of communities are building when they interact, and the sociocultural fissure points that land them in tangled webs of miscommunication”

van kleeck 1994
Van Kleeck 1994

“We have come to realise.. that language use is essentially a cultural phenomenon, both reflecting and transmitting deeply held cultural values and beliefs. If we are to provide increasingly efficacious services to all families we serve, we must grapple openly with the infinitely complex issues presented by the cultural diversity of the clients we serve”

Van Kleeck A (1994) Potential cultural bias in training parents as conversational partners with their children who have delays in language development American Speech-Language-Hearing Association

Key concepts of culture and language socialisation of communication needs in multilingual families

some questions to shape a knowledge object and our thoughts
Some questions to shape a knowledge object and our thoughts

How is the family collective building communication practices with and around the child?

What is the ecology of the family and the tension with individuality?

What are constellation of behaviours within families and cultures?

How do we build a new knowledge object to bridge the traditional separation between language acquisition and language socialisation?
