Using the Reggio Exhibit to Enrich Teacher Candidates' Perceptions of How Children Construct and Represent Knowledge
Ede, Anita R.; Da Ros-Voseles, Denise A.
Journal of Early Childhood Teacher Education, v31 n3 p222-231 2010
This teacher research study explores the changes in early childhood teacher candidates' perceptions of how children construct and represent knowledge following repeated exposure to "The Wonder of Learning: the Hundred Languages of Children" exhibit. When the renowned exhibit from Reggio Emilia was housed on the study participants' campus for 6 months, a unique opportunity was afforded area educators and future teachers interested in gaining a deeper appreciation of the many facets of this exhibit. After viewing the exhibit, participants wrote four one-minute reflections, which were later unitized and coded for emergent themes. Results indicated a notable expansion of teacher candidates' understanding of the multiple ways children can express and make visible their learning.
