Abstract This paper takes a look at the opportunities Ethnographic methods including Participant Observation and Participatory Design offers for a context based research into children's creative learning using tangible media and digital technologies. The intent of this paper is to discuss the study design in terms of its method and intended outcomes. This paper will also discuss some of the issues that have arisen as a result of the study of design of products and services in the information age. The title of the paper refers to the book 'The 100 languages of children' (Edwards, Gandini et al. 1993) which documents the Reggio Emilia early childhood education method which I will be using as an educational context for my investigation.
