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.
