Pretending to learn: Why play matters.
“Childhood is in a precarious state in our culture,” she says. “It seems that we consider childhood to be a precious time, while simultaneously undermining children’s opportunity to benefit from it. If we overschedule, overstimulate, and oversupervize our children – do we all lose?”
In her 45 minute talk, Dr. Marentette will focus in particular on imaginative play and consider its importance for children’s learning.
