  • Alec @ Child's Play Music

    "The Future of Education is Play" Child's Play Music. "I know only too well that play-based learning is under serious threat in the US (and to a lesser extent here in Australia too) ... we are living in a time where most teachers are worried about teaching to the test and hitting standards. And that is a tragedy. When play goes, learning goes. We have over 100 years of solid research that shows that the natural way for young children to learn is through play" [from the post]
