Learning through play
The various kinds of play are generally divided into five broad types based upon the developmental purposes that each serves. Symbolic play is about playing with different forms of representations and starts very early in life.
Play as a field for researchCreativity, engagement and lifelong learning are three key focal points for PLAYTrack, a new research project at the Interacting Minds Centre at Aarhus University in Denmark. The project is funded by the LEGO Foundation, which is supporting this collaborative venture with a sum amounting to DKK 12 million. Over the coming five-year period, the Interacting Minds Centre will work closely with the LEGO Foundation on developing new methods to investigate and document how play supports learning.
