We're thrilled to link to this blog post by Ollie Bray, Initiatives Lead in the Connecting Play and Education Programme (and our partner) at the LEGO Foundation. From Ollie:
A growing body of evidence supports that play is fundamental for children’s positive development and an essential way to foster the skills required to thrive in today’s world, why the LEGO Foundation is looking to create systemic change in formal education by making sure the value of learning through play is understood and acted upon.
The OECD Teaching and Learning International Survey (TALIS) is an international large-scale survey of teachers, school leaders and learning environments in schools that is published every five years. The results of the latest survey (the largest ever survey involving teachers globally) were published in June 2019.
We invite you to click the link below to hear Ollie discuss how playful interventions can address some of the challenges and opportunities created by the TALIS 2018 results (and highlights some of our own Pedagogy of Play work in the process).
