Play-based learning is a cornerstone of early childhood education. In recent years, the concept of intentional teaching has also gained momentum. This on-demand webinar discusses a new approach to balancing open-ended play with intentional teaching, using the Pedagogical Play-framework. According to the framework, three main types of play—open-ended, modelled and purposefully framed—can be used in multiple combinations to support young children’s learning.
This on-demand webinar will:
- help you understand the Pedagogical Play-framework and the relationship between open-ended, modelled and purposefully framed play
- introduce you to the theoretical ideas in the work of Vygotsky that underpin the Pedagogical Play-framework.
