AIR Case Study: Playworks and the Science of Learning and Development

  1. Updates

Playworks is bringing the science of learning & development to life through the power of play.

All young people have the ability to become their best selves when provided the right experiences, context, and relationships. Play has the power to create those parameters. The American Institutes for Research shared a case study about how Playworks is leveraging the power of play to support whole child development.

The Science of Learning and Development is a cross-disciplinary body of knowledge that describes how people learn and develop. It also provides many powerful lessons that can transform education systems, advance equity, and help every young person thrive.
