Using natural and found materials together with low- and high-tech light sources, participants will have fun exploring and creating collaborative micro stories. Based on our experiences in ateliers (studios) in Loris Malaguzzi International Centre on study tours to Reggio Emilia, Italy our goal is encourage educators to use technology in rich and meaningful ways, and provide children with another language for expression and communication.
