BAMBINI CREATIVI's 5th ANNUAL WINTER CONFERENCE & WORKSHOP

Saturday, February 18th, 2017

The Power of Project Work & The Adventures of Learning
When we actively listen to children we are able to hear how the world comes alive through children’s interactions and curiosities. We are able to learn more about their interests and sensibilities along their educational journeys, and pedagogical documentation as a process of understanding help us (educators) to foster connections that deepen learning. When there is a whole world where everyone and everything is new to you, you crave nothing more than to understand, make meaning from it, and develop a relationships with all that surrounds you. It is a fundamental desire of our species. But somehow over time, the intrinsic desires hardwired in all of humanity to learn- really learn, has largely short-circuited and deduced to a mind numbing protocol of memorization and routine. The Reggio Emilia Approach abolishes the atomization of disconnected learning and preserves what we know is best regarding children and their desires to learn and emotionally connect to the world around them. Project Work time, in a Reggio Inspired classroom, is a sanctuary for connected and emotionally engaging learning. It is the preservation of time and space scheduled each day for children to take the lead and follow their curiosities, formulate theories, conduct experiments, influence thinking or be influenced by the thoughts of others, and simply engage in experiences that craft new knowledge and understanding.
