The Wonder of Learning: the hundred languages of children

This spring for my birthday, we met friends Julie and Jim Biddle in Carmel. Julie is on the National Alliance for Reggio Children and was in California for the opening of the remarkable traveling exhibit of Reggio Emilia schools.  It is now in Salinas at the Steinbeck museum through November 1.  From there, it will travel to Vancouver, Canada, and Portland, Oregon.  Whether you are in education or not–don’t miss it.  I plan to visit again with my granddaughter, Chloe, at the end of August.  Chloe will be a senior this year at the University of Oregon, preparing to be a teacher.  The following is an except from the Wonder of Learning website.

“The travelling exhibition The Wonder of Learning recounts experience from infant-toddler centres, preschools and primary schools in the city of Reggio Emilia. This exhibition is offered as a democratic piazza calling international attention to the importance of education and schools as places for discussion and mutual exchange.

In continuity with the previous exhibition The Hundred Languages of Children, the aim is to reconfirm the values at the heart of the Reggio Emilia educational philosophy and to recount the changes, innovations, and developments that have taken place. The exhibition speaks to all those involved in schooling, and to all members of the general public who believe that safeguarding educational processes and their evolution is of fundamental importance for society.”
