Keep play in your libraries and in your schools-POWERFUL

Stuart Brown on the power of play. Some persuasive material here on the benefits of different kinds of play - body play, object play, social play, spectator or ritual play, imaginative play (including solo and shared narratives). I love the concept of a ’state of play’ as in some sense a separate domain in which to explore the possible. I was also struck by his argument that a story is “the fundamental unit of intelligibility.” As with so many TED talks, a very rich set of ideas presented clearly and concisely. from Ed Webb
