STEM in the Playscape: Building Knowledge for Educational Practice

NSF Awards: 1114674

2018 (see original presentation & discussion)

Adult learners, Informal / multi-age

This video presentation is grounded in the results from two National Science Foundation studies of play, affordances, pedagogy, and children's learning in nature playscapes. Data will be presented and conversation will be facilitated related to choosing or creating environments that best afford learning and pedagogical practices that support play and learning in nature-based early childhood settings. The studies focused on science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) concepts, but findings indicate rich environmental literacy and spatial cognition models are inherent in thoughtfully designed or selected spaces and teacher practices. Considerations of nature playscapes as a “third teacher” will be highlighted. Studies were conducted collaboratively with naturalists, teachers, early childhood teacher educators, and university researchers.
