As a principal investigator at Project Zero, a research organization at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, Ben Mardell teaches and conducts research in early childhood settings – something he has been doing for 40 years. Ben will give a keynote about ‘Supporting Playful Learning in Libraries: A Pedagogy of Play’

Play exists across the animal kingdom and is a shared feature of humanity. Why?

Because play supports learning.

This keynote shares findings from the Pedagogy of Play research project to explain how a comprehensive and collaborative approach to teaching and learning can help librarians promote playful learning; where young people lead, explore the unknown, and find joy in their learning.
