Child's Play


Theory Into Practice Volume 47, Number 2, ISSN 0040-5841


Emerging digital technologies enable teachers and students to access and manipulate sights and sounds in their school environments. The challenge is to systematically include these new media in academic environments, and to include adults who are ill prepared in technical issues as primary guides in this effort. This article suggests that child's play should be the focus of these efforts, and that the Montessori classroom provides a good model to guide these considerations. (Contains 5 figures.)
