Description
Go Play! directly addresses the importance of play in education in developing countries. While classroom learning is important, play provides a different environment for children to learn and develop skills in order to put their learning into practice daily. Schools in the developing world tend to teach using ROTE learning or call and response methods. Providing other ways for children to learn is critical. Play does this and Go Play! creates spaces to encourage play.
Playgrounds designed and built for children help form the skills needed to face a world in constant flux, where changeability and adaptability is the key to survival.
Education systems all over the world are trying to create learning environments for children that prepare them for a rapidly changing future. To learn to live in such a world, children need much more than basic knowledge. A playground is the place for children to form the building blocks of creative, critical and collaborative thinking: from the invention of games and solutions to complex problems, to negotiating rules and inventing new scenarios -- play is the soil for the planting of new ideas.
