Observing, documenting and interpreting children’s learning and play are among the most valuable skills an educator can develop.  Documentation brings visibility to the teaching and learning process, deepening our understanding of each other.  It helps educators build intentionality into their learning environments, develops closer relationships with children and families, and supports authentic assessment. 

Please take a look at highlights of this here at Great Beginnings.
