How Playful Approaches Can Bring More Joy to Teaching

When educators are supported in exploring more playful models of teaching and learning, everyone in the classroom thrives.

December 20, 2023

In the schools Edutopia visited for our Making Learning More Playful series (across four countries!), we saw greater teacher satisfaction and more student engagement. When kids are fully on board in the classroom, teachers have more time and energy to build rich, social, playful, student-centered learning opportunities, and they experience less burnout. The result? Positive school communities where everyone flourishes, transformed by the fundamental shift toward making learning more playful.

To learn more about the research behind the practices seen in the video, check out the links below. 

Edutopia developed the Making Learning More Playful series with support from The LEGO Foundation.
