Play-Based Pedagogy in the Elementary Classroom


  • Analyze the power of play in childhood
  • Develop strategies for creating play-based learning opportunities
  • Create an inclusive community that supports play-based learning




The science of brain development has provided us with solid evidence that there is real power in play. Play is the vital activity that children use to learn about and interact with their world, and gain the mental, physical and social and emotional skills necessary to succeed in their adult lives. This course will answer three core questions: What does it mean to have a pedagogy of play and why is it important? What does playful learning look and feel like in classrooms and schools? How do educators set up the conditions where playful learning thrives?
