Beth Dichter's curator insight, January 12, 2013 11:18 PM

This post explores a report from the Institute for the Future, 'Transformative Changes for Children at Play' that was sponsored by the LEGO Group. The infographic provides a look at information found in the report, including sections on:

* How play is expanding social reach

* How play is empowering creativity

* How play impacts new visual literacies

* Blended play

* Deep personalization

* Emotional tech

* How tech is going mainstream

Within the post Jackie Gerstein summarizes "the key areas of the change nature of play as identified by Lego" as well as additional information from the report and provides her perspective on "some simple suggestions I have to facilitate play with technology in educational settings."

Recently there was a discussion on linked-in about this very subject and it has gotten a lot of responses. In my opinion PLAY is a necessity to child's development.....and if you haven't gotten to play with a child lately, take the time you will learn from them too!
