In 2017, members of Perth Reggio Network have been researching and documenting children’s learning through play. This project, ‘Playful Exchanges’ is looking at questions such as:
 
What is the role of play in a Reggio-inspired curriculum? 
How do children and adults co-construct knowledge in play? 
How does play support children’s thinking? 
How do teachers make children’s play-based learning visible? 
What is the role of the teacher in play?  
How does play support and reveal children’s strengths and competencies?
 
At this meeting, three Perth Reggio Network teachers will share their findings in response to some of these questions.  Each presentation will include an opportunity to ask questions.
 
Suzanne Bushby teaches at Perth College where she has been the Kindergarten teacher for 12 years. She has been investigating the educational project of Reggio Emilia since 1996. Suzanne has visited Reggio Emilia for a Study Tour with other Australian delegates in 2008 and participated in an In-depth Study Tour to Reggio Emilia in 2017.
 
Katie Pitchford has been the owner/director of Como Children for 17 years. She has visited Reggio Emilia 4 times and has been investigating the educational project of Reggio Emilia since 2001.
 
Kristy McFarlane teaches Pre-Primary at Victoria Park. She was drawn to the Reggio approach during her undergraduate studies and has been an active member of Perth Reggio Network since 2013.

REsearch Conversations NSW

 

This Sydney based network meets once a term around an annual research question. In 2017, the group is exploring the question, “What is education?”.

 

During our times together we have been researching the meaning of education, making visible our subjective and diverse constructions of education, and considering the meaning of education through the lens of the Reggio Emilia educational project.
