The Wonder of Learning: the Hundred Languages of Children ExhibitJuly 11, 2013 - December 7, 2013
West Oʻahu Campus, Library
The Wonder of Learning: the hundred languages of children, an internationally-renowned traveling exhibition of the infant-toddler centers and preschools of the Istituzione Municipality of Reggio Emilia Italy, will be on display in the UH West O'ahu Library.
The free exhibit illustrates the acclaimed Reggio Emilia approach to early childhood learning and the core belief that the child is capable. The exhibit provides a setting to engage in discussion about early childhood education and continue the dialogue about the establishment of a quality early learning system for all of Hawai'i's keiki.
This unique exhibit is composed of six thematic areas: Introduction, Dialogues with Places, Dialogues with Material, Ray of Light, The Enchantment of Writing, and Ideas and Projects. These themes are delivered through a sequence of interconnected micro-planes that can be viewed separately. The micro-places include seating areas, tables, reference areas, sofas and film areas to allow in-depth views of children's and teachers' processes, adults' roles, working tools, and more.
UH West O'ahu is co-sponsoring The Wonder of Learning with Mid-Pacific Institute, the Hawaii Association of Independent Schools, Kamehameha Schools, the Atherton Foundation, UH Manoa College of Education and PATCH.
