Thank you, Dr. Lobman for a fascinating lecture! The topic was extremely timely and helped to connect so many of the point made in other lectures in our series. Children need play to learn, grow and make sense of their worlds. When this innate activity is disconnected from learning, children are at great risk for not meeting their potential. Thanks to all who commented on other contextual factors that limit play such as unsafe parks, lack of play areas, and increased reliance on TV. Be sure to share your thoughts and reflections!
