FILM | ‘PLAY’ | KATIE SALEN (OTHER FILMS BELOW)
Might we have underestimated the value of ‘play’? If we adjudge ‘play’ as a state of being then perhaps we have. And perhaps such a state of being might hold answers for the reimagining of education. And our enterprises. And our lives.
PLAY is part of a series I’ve made on the Reimagining of Education for Connected Learning.
The MacArthur Foundation backed the Digital and Media Learning Hub (University of California Humanities Research Institute) to re-imagine the experience of education and schooling. In the last 5 years they have spent close to $100 million in research. Connected Learning is the outcome. I got to make a series of six films to help tell the essence of their story.
THE FILM QUESTIONS
One / ‘Might we have underestimated the value of ‘play’?’ Two / ‘How would your life look if seen through a playful state of mind?’ Three / ‘Might confidence sit at the heart of an extraordinary education?’ Four / ‘Might a playful frame of mind stand to transform the experience of education?’ Five / ‘Might a playful state of mind enable the strength of our true human spirit?’
