Play and its link to literacy and theory of mind

Play and its link to literacy and theory of mind.

Around the globe, pressure to increase standards of literacy results in reduced time for play at school.

Yet, researchers and philosophers increasingly understand the importance of play and how it develops complex language and thinking skills – things required for high levels of achievement in literacy and a well-developed theory of mind.

This i- learning module examines these links, with practical ideas on how to make the most of play, additional readings and some reflective activities to embed learning.
