Virtual Tour and Context Discussion: University of Chicago Lab Schools
Certificate of Attendance available
The foundations of the Reggio Emilia Approach were inspired by constructivist thinkers like Piaget and Vygotsky and progressive educators like John Dewey. John and Alice Dewey founded the University of Chicago Laboratory Schools in 1896. John Dewey believed that democratic child-centered classrooms and interaction with their communities would prepare the youngest citizens for living in a democratic society. Children's right to participate, to be a part of democracy, is central to the Reggio Emilia approach. In this presentation teachers from Lab Schools provide a window into their current expressions of the intersection of Dewey and the Reggio Emilia Approach.
