Title: The Power of Play for Preparing Children for a Global World
Content: Playful learning is essential for children as it serves many functions. It includes "free play" in which children are in charge, and "guided play," in which adults have a learning goal in mind. In guided play, children lead the way but adults gently constrain how children explore. Both free and guided play are necessary to create children who will become life long learners and gain the flexibility needed to succeed in this new world.
