How do we learn?

Curiosityville – Page 1.

We learn through experimenting and critical thinking and creativity, which are all parts of play – as noted in this article.  Recently, I have been doing a bit of research on sensory processing issues and its effects within the modern day school systems.  I have found it sad that the suggested treatment for the ever-growing diagnosis is simply play without boundaries.  By play without boundaries I am talking about being able to jump for ages on a trampoline or spin yourself dizzy on a merry go ground, or run until exhausted, or dig in the dirt and get yourself muddy.  If this kind of play is one of the treatments for this condition, then wouldn’t it stand to reason that kids need the opportunity to open play more and, possibly, we may not have so many children being diagnosed?
