Welcome friends, to the Pathway to Play™ a new Blog spotlighting Play & Communication, a formula that’s transforming the space we call ‘the classroom’.
We seek: teachers, parents, high school and college students, the education-minded, community creatives; people of all walks looking for a collaborative opportunity to share in advancing Play’s crucial role in learning and its potential power to change education in small and large scope alike.
Our mission is to align with the culture-changing mission of the young who are rising up against Shooter Violence. We intend to provoke, provide a pathway as well as evidence for those seeking and advocating change in education. In practice and in science, Play is an organizing principle that we believe education must follow.
Play certainly has its detractors. That’s why in the same breath as “teaching & learning through play”, we cite Einstein’s natural capacity for play at age 16--imagining a ride on a beam of light--a birthright capacity in every child that’s all but banned from our learning culture. Play is an antidote to the poisons and policies we expose children to in the name of learning. Play can Rescue, Restore. Rebirth our learning culture. The Pathway to Play™ broadcasts how and why Play is the only real and credible solution for transformation.
