White Paper
Play facilitation: The science behind the art of engaging young children

Dr. Pyle, along with other researchers from a variety of disciplines and countries, collaborated with The LEGO Foundation to create the white paper, Play facilitation: The science behind the art of engaging young children. This informative guide draws from a variety of sources, including larger-scale observational research, experimental studies, reviews and meta-analyses from cross-cultural contexts including and beyond the Western world.

This guide is meant to support readers, including educators, researchers, and policymakers as they develop their understanding of play as a means to facilitate and engage students' learning.  

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/University of Toronto.
