What can we learn from 100 years of learning through play? What is the future of language learning through play!

Note: Back by popular demand – this session was previously held in June and is being held again at a more convenient time in Europe.

We will look at: 

  • A history of play-based learning
  • A framework for learning through play

…and analyze games on their “playability”!
