  • Learning By Play

    What does play have to do with learning? More than you may think. Today's kids are getting less playtime than previous generations, and that may have an impact on later learning development. Dr. Karen Adolph, Dr. Kathy Hirsh-Pasek, and Dr. David Kanter help us explore the playful side of education.

    This podcast is produced in complement to an Academy workshop held earlier this summer on the relationship between early childhood play, the development of attention, and subsequent classroom learning abilities.
