Room 259, Educational Sciences Building, 1025 W. Johnson St.

Angela Pyle

Assistant Professor, Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, University of Toronto

Angela Pyle will discuss whether a play-based pedagogical approach for children in the classroom can truly support their academic learning. She will share classroom-based data to describe the current state of play in classrooms and the possibilities for children to learn and develop when adults play a role in mandated play-based learning. 

This session is sponsored by WCER's Center for Research on Early Childhood Education (CRECE).
