Episode 62 | The Role of Play in Early Math Learning
As a follow up to their excellent and fun Colloquium talk on November 27, 2017; Elizabeth Gamino, Wilma Hashimoto, and Aileen Rizo join Chris in the studio to talk about the role play has in early learning and by extension to all learners. These three discuss in detail some of the activities they had the attendees engage in, and how they incorporated concepts of “embodied cognition,” “inquiry based learning,” and highly engaging learning activities. These three have been working within our Pre-school focused Early Math Team for a several years and have been taking these ideas to the classroom recently with positive results for student engagement, and acquisition of concepts. This lively podcast, while long, will be over before you know it, these people are fun!
