‘Play in Education’ Series:
Free to Learn! Master Talk
(For Educators and Practitioners in Education, Parenting and Related Field)

Children come into the world exquisitely designed by natural selection to learn about the physical, social, and cultural world around them.  In this talk ─ based on cross-cultural research, laboratory studies, and Prof. Gray’s research at alternative educational settings in the United States ─ he will describe how children’s instincts to explore, play, bond with others, and take charge of their own lives provide the natural foundation for education. Prof. Gray will also describe the conditions in which these educative instincts seem to operate best. How can we design educational settings that work with, rather than against, children’s natural ways of learning?
