With a new school year ahead of you, how will you incorporate play (or playfulness) in your classroom - both in a preK-12 and/or your college classroom?
According to Dr. Stuart Brown, an expert on play, play is essential in learning for all ages and stages. Essential! Funny how most USAmericans think of play as something completely separate from learning or completely separate from working. What if play co-existed with either of those - learning or working? Would you believe me if I told you the research says your learners and workers would be more productive?
More productive? Yep. We need play.
Now, go and add some playfulness into your students' (or employees') day. Leave a comment after you do and let me know its impact.
All the best,
Jen - master of play :)
