EXPERIENCES OF CHILDREN WITH IMAGES AND PLAYING TIMEDuring experiences for the Pedagogy Graduation Work, at the Instituto de Biociências, Unesp / Rio Claro, a research was developed within a four-to-five year old children School. This research was based on analyzing what been a child is and how children relate with each other within the school environment. It was also observed immanency behavior from their living experiences, meetings, commitments, their sense of space, learning and experiencing with those children many different kinds of devir processes. This research has shown that specially during playing time strong changes do happen. The act of playing has revealed itself as a privileged way of possibilities for devir processes and development experiences to happen. According to this, it has been noticed the need and possibility of studying more carefully the play time as a real living experience, and the school as a possible place to support a research that looks forward to work with a cartography (as something that extends itself on education activities, among images, plays, infancies and language.) of playing, looking forward to find evidences of how children understand playing (experiences) producing narrative/imaged processes as experience too. The purpose of this project is to find evidences of the act of playing as an experience, through narrative/imaged processes produced by children. This research will be based on theories about notions in infancy, events and devir based on the philosophy of difference perspective (Gilles Deleuze & Félix Guattari) and will develop the meaning of experience according to Walter Benjamin and Jorge Larrosa theory such as the meaning of narration according to André Parente. The field work data will show the results of a systematic accompaniment of activities inside the classroom, school playground, and other environments within the school. This accompaniment will be based on registering observations and video-records of playing time. These procedures compose a qualitative research, with an ethnographic profile, and its data collection system are based on observing behavior of children.
