Documenting thinking and learning

Delegates will have opportunities to:

  • Focus on what we display on the walls of classrooms and within early years settings.
  • Reflect on how the process of learning is so much more important than producing end products.
  • Consider the importance of presenting children with provocations as opposed to activities.
  • Consider how to present the thinking of the children and the adults who work with them.
  • Understand how transcriptions of children’s words and dialogues, photographs, drawings and representation using many different media are used to tune into and understand children’s thinking.
  • Consider how to convey the process of learning and thinking to parents

The training will focus on established best practice inspired by the work in Reggio Emilia and will reflect the work of Lillian Katz with particular reference to the “The Project Approach” – drawing on lessons learned about how to listen to children and facilitate their ideas. Projects will be explored through photographic presentations.
