The Value of Play Beyond the Playground

Mar 8, 2022

11:30am – 11:50am CT

Play is our natural driver as humans to discover, explore, and empathize with others. It is universal, and it can be applied as a powerful tool for evoking creativity, exploration, and free-choice learning for all demographics. And yet, the term “play” is consistently isolated within specific spaces for specific people. This session will explore how we can begin to shift the narrative of play to showcase the value of implementing play within everyday spaces outside the playground.
