Imaginative Play as a Life-Span, Cultural Activity

Play is a critical life activity in leading learning and development across
the lifespan, yet play has become a neglected even denigrated aspect of
education. In this session, we revisit play as the foundation for action in
education. Our panel takes up the challenge to the current convention of
cookie cutter curriculum and advocates, instead, for the recognition and
restoration of play in the ways we teach, learn and live. Mike Askew, Kings
College; Jaime E. Martinez, East Side Institute; Joan Almon, Alliance for
Childhood; Bonny L. Gildin, All Stars Project; Carrie L. Lobman, Rutgers
University; Artin Goncu, University of Illinois - Chicago.
