Momentum is building at an international scale around taking a more playful approach to learning in schools. To document this movement, Edutopia put together a Making Learning More Playful video series, documenting how six schools in four countries adopted a playful learning mindset.
Pierre Elliott Trudeau Elementary School (PETES) was among the four filmed, where principal David McFall highlighted the added benefit of bringing learning and play outdoors for students’ cognitive, physical, mental, and emotional health and wellbeing. In David’s words: ‘when you incorporate playful learning into the curriculum, that’s when children enjoy being at school.’
