Digital Languages in Reggio-inspired Classrooms
London ReFocus Open Meeting
London ReFocus, as part of the Sightlines-Initiative Network, invites early educators, artists and others in developing a creative and reflective approach to early years’ education and inspired in their practice by the pre-schools of Reggio Emilia, Italy.
In this seminar Kate will share reflections from a research visit to Reggio-inspired preschools in Stockholm, focusing on their use of digital technologies as part of a ‘hundred languages’ approach. Sharing examples of practice, Kate will consider how digital technologies might present potentials for young children’s meaning-making in multiple modes and the pedagogy behind their use.
Kate is a Research Associate at UCL Institute of Education. Her research interests include play, creativity, literacies and digital technologies in early childhood. Before joining UCL IOE, Kate was a nursery teacher in a Reggio-inspired children’s centre in Cambridgeshire.
