How to support learning by being more playful

Play is a core way that children learn. In play children create, learn from mistakes, and imagine new possibilities. Yet, because of the nature of play and the nature of school, bringing playful learning into schools is not simple or straightforward.

A team from Project Zero at Harvard’s Graduate School of Education have been researching the power of playful learning in four Johannesburg area schools. Find out more about their research and findings, and consider how you can bring more play and playfulness into your classroom in order to support your students’ learning.
