Learning through Digital Play

Learning through Digital Play (LtDP) is a collaboration with the LEGO Foundation to explore how characteristics of learning through play—experiences that are active, social, iterative, meaningful, joyful—can be extended to digital environments. It looks at platforms like Scratch, LEGO Mindstorms, Minecraft, and others that can afford children with a sense of agency and opportunities for guidance from others (peers, parents, teachers, etc.) while creating something shareable. We are also interested in evidence of learning outcomes (academic and life skills), and insights on related topics like enabling factors (e.g., what facilitates use in schools or community settings), along with opportunities and challenges to scaling. The primary product will be a white paper, blog post, and related publications.
