Documentation and Design / Progettazione I

Why document? What is the relation between documentation and design / progettazione?


This webinar is part of A SERIES OF WEBINARS ON DOCUMENTATION - Making Learning Visible. These webinars were recorded in November-December 2020.

This webinar is on demand. You can view it whenever you like for 6 months after purchase, in your personal area.


Design / progettazione is a working strategy whereby teachers, rather than planning a course beforehand, formulate hypotheses, expectations, predictions, and possibilities, open to the encounter with children, and which take on form in this relation.

In this context documentation makes observation visible by giving a voice to children and their thoughts, it seeks to show which learning processes are taking place in these relational contexts, and offers a tool for identifying and choosing ways of proceeding.

Therefore observation and documentation are fundamental strategies for the teacher who through them, writes the design or progettazione as a text (made of multiple languages) integrating the “writings” of the adults and those of the children.
