Where Global Science Meets Playful Learning: Implications for Home, School, Cities and Digital Spaces

How do we educate children today for a world of tomorrow - for a world filled with new technological tools that can port them to diverse realities, for a world where innovators and leaders will face uncertainties in geographic boundaries, climate change and the workforce?

Playful learning consolidates a suite of characteristics that capture how the brain learns best, and this report offer a perfect way to introduce the science of learning to educators, decision-makers, and the population at large.

The report on playful learning articulates ways we can help parents understand the connections between playful learning and their children’s academic and developmental outcomes; promote continued momentum in education policy that embraces a breadth of skills rather than a narrow focus on content in school settings; and scaffold city designs that centre children’s learning in everyday inter-generational spaces.
