Abstract

[The chapter will explain the work of Bronfenbrenner (The Ecology of Human Development: Experiments by Nature and Design, Harvard University Press, 1979), who suggested that the world of the child can be theorised as an ecological system, where the interaction of different systems influence how a child will develop. The Goonies is a wildly popular 1985 film about a close group of children who embark on an adventure that is a perfect fictional example of how Bronfenbrenner’s model works. Bronfenbrenner encouraged educationalists and psychologists to view the individual child as the centre of a complex system and to acknowledge and analyse these system environments and how they interact when trying to understand the child and their personal challenges. This chapter is relevant to the fields of psychology, sociology, childhood and early childhood studies and teacher education.]
