Abstract

In this colloquium we share stories from two schools located in Western Australia that were inspired from the Reggio Emilia education project. The focus is on a view of children as capable citizens of the now. The examples in practice describe learning scenarios in which educators work as researchers using the ordinary moments of daily classroom life. It is in these ordinary moments where a pedagogy of listening is enacted.
