Notes on Documentation

Some notes from my week in Reggio Emilia last year on documentation:

Documentation:
  • is a democratic practice
  • gives visibility to a project
  • is a tool for creating public space for a project
  • is a tool for continuity between bodies (e.g. preschool and primary school)
  • involves all teachers
  • makes discussion possible: between teachers; between teachers and families; between children and teachers; between children and parents
  • is centered on concrete actions and practice
  • helps find relationships between theory and practice
  • not carried out on "things I decided beforehand"
  • is a work in progress - documentation is a continuous flow and dialogue between work and children
  • works with the declaration of a school's identity
