Video 1: The Superpower of the “Hundred Languages” - Reflections by Vea Vecchi

Excerpt of the video "The Superpower of the Hundred Languages” - Reflections by Vea Vecchi:

 

This video is part of the Digital Educational Toolbox "The myriad forms of research in children and adults" and introduces the theme of the 100 languages, widely recognised as a pedagogical manifesto of the Reggio Emilia Approach. The choice of defining what are generally known as fields of learning, or disciplines, as “languages”, is a choice that credits them with being possessed, from birth, by every human being, a biological legacy that develops and acquires potential in the encounter with other children and adults, and with the physical and virtual world.

 

The reflections offered in the video highlight the importance and richness of processes that can be constructed by trying out and experimenting with connections between different languages, and how languages in reciprocal relations are a regenerative cultural and creative force.

Reggio Emilia Approach
