This paper reports on a segment of PhD research which was undertaken to develop participatory pedagogy working specifically within a praxeological paradigm (Oliveira- Formosinho and Formosinho 2012a; Pascal and Bertram 2012). It focuses on the development of listening practices through a process of pedagogic mediation (Oliveira-Formosinho and Formosinho 2012b). The research was carried over two academic years in a private day care setting in England and aimed to enhance pedagogic practice with three and four-year olds.

This qualitative methodology encompassed ethnographic techniques to develop a case study (Stake 1995). It researched the development of participatory practice through pedagogic mediation, as developed by the Childhood Association, Portugal (Oliveira-Formosinho and Formosinho 2012b). This paper reports on two listening methods which were developed between researcher, practitioner and the children in the setting. These methods demonstrate the co-constructed participatory pedagogy and the isomorphic nature of learning (Formosinho and Formosinho 2016).
