Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, November 21, 4:21 PM
The Reggio Emilia approach is about having children seen as competent, resourceful, curious, imaginative, inventive and to possess a desire to interact and communicate with others. The learning environment, the third educator, invites learners to explore and discover on their own as teachers and parents observe and document the process. 
Norton Gusky's curator insight, November 22, 9:09 AM

Carnegie Mellon University and Carlow University in Pittsburgh have been leaders in using the Reggio Emilia model for early childhood. Reggio Emilia sees technology as one tool that actively engages the child. The environment is really a Maker Space giving young learners the tools to learn based on their interests.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, November 22, 12:22 PM

The teaching/learning environment is a technology that is often overlooked.

The Need for Pretend Play in Child Development | Beautiful Minds, Scientific American Blog Network

The Need for Pretend Play in Child Development | Beautiful Minds, Scientific American Blog Network | early childhood education and more | Scoop.it


Many people often think of play in the form of images of young children at recess engaging in games of tag, ball, using slides, swings, and physically exploring their environments. But physical play is not the only kind of play. We often use the terms pretend play or make-believe play (the acting out of stories which involve multiple perspectives and the playful manipulation of ideas and emotions), that reflect a critical feature of the child’s cognitive and social development.

If we can catch children at this age and help them to develop self-regulation skills, they will have a chance to break the cycle plaguing many in society today.  This is a program to watch for long-term success.

"The Adventures of a Village begins like many stories do—by setting the scene. In this case, a small cluster of snow-covered buildings are intersected by winding train tracks. That's it. What happens next is a clever play on the old Choose Your Own Adventure books—but, instead of turning pages to read ahead, their corners are folded over like narrative origami to reveal visual plot points featuring everything from UFOs to hot air balloons."
