Program Description

Through this workshop, participants will explore the relationship between materials, knowledge, learning and thinking. They will come to know how materials can be used to construct meaning and consolidate understanding.

Participants will:

  • Through hands-on experiences gain a deeper understanding of what Reggio Emilia refers to as The Hundred Languages of Children
  • Unpack the process by which children construct a literacy in language
  • Gain a deeper understanding of how children construct knowledge and meaning when they work with materials
  • Understand how the physical properties of materials influence thought.

The Hundred Languages of Children workshop brings practice and theory together and includes documentation of work with children.
