“The Wonder of Learning — The Hundred Languages of Children” is an exhibit we’ve talked about in this space before which is about the Reggio Emilia approach to early childhood learning that’s currently on view at the State House. David Hoppe wrote an article in this week’s issue of NUVO that does a good job of explaining what the exhibit is about and why you should try to visit it before it leaves Indianapolis in mid December.
On Sept. 25-27, Butler College of Education (COE) helped turn the Indiana Statehouse into a three-day “democratic forum” in which more than 100 educators explored young children’s rights to a good education. Titled “Dialogues for Quality in Education: Social Justice in Diverse Early Childhood Settings,” the professional development conference was presented in conjunction with the exhibit at the Statehouse. You can read coverage of the event on Butler University’s website.
