The power of play in unlocking the creative potential of every learner will be the focus of the University of Washington College of Education’s EDU Talks event.
During a fast-paced program, nine UW faculty members will share their compelling discoveries about play and how it can open new opportunities for all children to explore their world, overcome challenges and thrive. Each presenter has five minutes and one slide to share their research related to play.
The event is free and open to the public; attendees must register online in advance.
Among the topics to be explored during the event are:
“Role Play: The Power of Simulation”
“The Healing Power of Play”
"Digital Playspaces for Place-making"
“Turning Math Class Into Playtime”
