Enhancing Your Designs with Playful Learning
Session 1B | 10:10 - 11:40 AM
1 .5 AIA LUs
Playful Learning Landscapes is a global movement that combines placemaking with early learning. By creating environments for children that adhere to a set of research-based principles of playful learning, children are invited to playfully explore their world in ways that lead to defined learning goals. By referring to an evidence base and presenting the tools for measuring the effectiveness of environments, Science-Informed Design offers architects a form of practice in which the value of their work can be better understood by others. In this session, participants will learn how to embed the principles of playful learning into design decisions. By introducing a practical methodology and facilitating scenario-based design charettes, participants will have the opportunity to learn through an exploratory process in real-time, just like playful learning!
