This session will introduce current research on how play impacts learning and how learning is enhanced through play. An easy to remember model for creative teaching and learning will be presented, as well as strategies on how to use it to both plan and deliver classes. Building on the works of David Meier and E. Paul Torrance, this model presents four different stages in the learning process: Preparing, Learning through Laughter, Accelerating and Yo-Yo effect. The model helps to increase knowledge applicability and decrease training times.
