S4.E9: Play-based learning environments create spaces of equity and inclusion

June 25, 20231 min read

Episode Summary:

This week on Season 4, Episode 9 of That's SO EDVOLUTIONARY, we talk about how play-based learning environments by default lend themselves to equity (all students get what they need to be successful) and inclusion.

Differentiation is a well-known word in the education space, but it is very difficult to pull off within our standard one-size-fits-all curriculum and pacing...and not to mention is exhausting for teachers to figure out how to differentiate one learning goal for everyone.

But play-based learning provides another way that easier for teachers and more empowering and affirming for students.

Check out this week's episode to find out more!
