Play is Hard Work

Cascade B

Play should be the cornerstone of much of what we do with technology for teaching and learning. Heck, play should comprise a considerable chunk of all of our learning time. But what does play look like in a digital environment? How can we create playful spaces around serious topics? And are play and fun the same things?
In this session, we’ll privilege habits over tools and explore play and playfulness with whatever gadgets, gizmos and whatnots we have in our classrooms.

Outcome:

Participants will approach playfulness as a seriously essential component of schooling and will leave with concrete ideas for how to implement play into their classroom practice.
