The Power of Play
Play as an educational practice is important at all stages and ages of learning , in part, because games and play-based learning can provide opportunities for students to experience a range of scenarios they are not yet able to live through in real life , but also because they have been shown to encourage creative modes of thinking, increase participation, and foster an enjoyable learning environment . This poster will demonstrate how interactive and multi-modal strategies can be used to engage students in a learning cycle. Drawing upon a foundation of educational neuroscience research, this poster will explore how play can be implemented in a wide range of learning environments and discuss the benefits of engaging students in non-traditional methods.
