Abstract

While the developmental benefits of learning through play have been well–documented, the Pedagogy of Play project is researching what it would look like if play were at the center of a school’s approach to learning for children of all ages. In this playful, interactive session, we will share emergent research findings, and participants will explore tensions between play and schools, and think critically about the objective and subjective nature of playful learning and the influences that shape such learning experiences.
