HI Leif, Jan and Inga
My name is Sonja Baumer. Here at the University of California, San
Diego (in Michael Cole's lab) we conducted a study on Playworlds, very
much inspired by Gunilla's work. Other members of my group include :
Beth Ferholt, Lars Rossen, Robert Lecusay, Monica Nilsson, Kristen
Clark. There also are groups in Finland (Pentti Hakkarainen and Anna
Rainio) and in Japan (Kiyotaka Miyazaki, Hiroaki Ishiguru and Yuki
Fujino) also working within the framework of play pedagogy.. We are
now writing a proposal for a special issue of MCA that will be
devoted to to Playworlds
and "play pedagogy" and in which will all groups feature their work.
I am attaching the paper that the San Diego group published in
"Cognitive Development" about Playworld. The paper reviews
Gunilla's work and directly examines the affects of playworld
educational activity on the development of narrative competence in
children ages 5-7. The study may be relevant to the discussion of
ZOPED empirical evidence.
Please pass this mail and my greetings to Gunilla's family and colleagues.
Laboratory of Comparative Human Cognition, University of California San Diego &
Institute for the Study of Social Change, University of California, Berkeley
