Over 2022, the REAIE Perth Network will use the conceptual thread of ‘connection’ to guide our collective research with children. As we learn alongside one another and research the concept of connection in diverse ways, we will also delve deeper into the principle of pedagogical documentation from the Reggio Emilia Approach.
We warmly welcome both new and existing members of the REAIE Perth Network to join us for this exciting project.
A unique opportunity to learn more about the role of documentation through viewing and discussing an exclusive interview between Tiziana Filippini, pedagogista from Reggio Emilia, and REAIE’s Jan Millikan. Our dialogue will be followed by an exciting opportunity to hear from the educators and tour the inspiring spaces at Como Children, with a particular focus on their use of documentation and their engagement in the 2022 Perth Network’s Connection Project. We look forward to delving deeper into the principle of documentation with both existing and new members.
