This spring the Reggio-Inspired Network of Minnesota plans to host a trip to Madison, Wisconsin to view the most recent international exhibit from Reggio Emilia.
“The Wonder of Learning” is a 7,000 square foot traveling exhibition, a thoughtfully curated selection of stories and artifacts revealing Reggio teachers’ and children’s ways of thinking and working related to specific everyday experiences.
By hosting a trip for Twin Cities educators to view “The Wonder of Learning” together in April 2019, the Network proposes a learning experience that is collaborative.
We are still working out RSVP details, but the below information will give you an idea of what will be happening that weekend.
