The light panel, also known as a light panel, light box, light plane or light tablet, is nothing more than a backlit tablet with LEDs on which children can perform various activities through interaction with objects. It is a relatively little-known tool in Italy, and this is paradoxical because it is instead central to the Reggio Approach, the excellent pedagogical approach of Loris Malaguzzi, born in Reggio Emilia but considered still today one of the most valid worldwide.
The light panel is a interdisciplinary educational resource that leaves ample space for "open" play (open ended play), it does not have a "right" way to be explored and this allows the child to express freely his creativity and imagination. This makes it extremely versatile throughout the growth process.
