In this article, we review briefly some of the literature from the Reggio Emilia approach that relates to documentation and how it is connected to child observation. Further, we provide a brief account of the discourses of globalization as applied to Reggio Emilia education in general and the use of documentation specifically. We conclude that the importation of the Reggio Emilia approach can be seen in part as a search for a viable alternative to the standards and accountability movement, the availability of the global locally, and the accessibility of patterns of consumption and desire.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
