Vol.3: Design/Progettazione in infant-toddler centres and preschools

Research open to wonder, between the possible, probable, and unpredictable

EBOOK 55 Pages

Available in other languages

This is the third in Reggio Children's "Fragments" series dedicated to making Loris Malaguzzi's writing, and his talks at conferences and professional learning meetings, available to a wider public.

In this volume we can read the transcript of a talk he gave in Reggio Emilia in 1988 as part of a calendar of meetings for educators in municipal infant-toddler centres and preschools, on the theme of 'designing' or progettazione in their work. On this occasion Malaguzzi's reflections "take to the open sea" and touch on several themes: human beings and their place in nature; learning between biological constraint and spaces of design thinking; connections between disciplines and knowledge; the value of subjective differences; the idea that development is not stage-based; uncertainty as a space of freedom and research with strategy and abduction as operational and conceptual tools; the times and quality of possibilities offered and of relations with adults and other children as important factors for constructing meaningful learning.
