DOCUMENTATION - Making Learning Visible


See documentation of projects in Reggio Emilia infant-toddler centres and preschools presented by teachers and educators


Design / progettazione is a working strategy whereby teachers, rather than planning a course beforehand, formulate hypotheses, expectations, predictions, and possibilities, open to the encounter with children, and which take on form in this relation.

In this context documentation makes observation visible by giving a voice to children and their thoughts, it seeks to show which learning processes are taking place in these relational contexts, and offers a tool for identifying and choosing ways of proceeding.

Therefore observation and documentation are fundamental strategies for the teacher who through them, writes the design or progettazione as a text (made of multiple languages) integrating the “writings” of the adults and those of the children.
