Welcome to Our Lab
We are the Play Learning Lab, run by Dr. Angela Pyle at the
Dr. Eric Jackman Institute of Child Study of the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education.
Check out our new Home Learning section to discover playful ways to learn at home.
Great news to see our continuum of play-based learning featured in the just released Early Years Study 4! Take a look at chapter 2, "Play With Purpose," to read about the value of play-based learning in Canada's early childhood education.
Play-based learning reaches the University of Wisconsin-Madison! Click here to read about a community workshop for Wisconsin's early childhood educators, "Expanding Notions of Play," led by Dr. Pyle and in collaboration with UW−Madison School of Education's Wisconsin Center for Education Research.
Dr. Pyle and Right To Play International share how play-based learning helps children develop, learn, and explore their world.
