Topic: Eliciting children’s perceptions of play and interrogating playfulness to maximise learning and development in the early years

Presenter: Kelesi Whippy, Assistant Lecturer, School of Education, Faculty of Arts, Law and Education, The University of the South Pacific, Suva, Fiji.

Abstract: This seminar presentation summarises research on children’s perceptions of play. It suggests that children’s perceptions are related to experience. Characteristics used by children to define play are considered from an educational perspective, where practitioners have the opportunity to manipulate perceptions through the experiences they provide. The significance of understanding children’s perceptions of playfulness is discussed.
