Phase Transitions: In the Brain, Socio-­Dramatic Play and Meaningful Early Learning
Fromberg, Doris Pronin
Complicity: An International Journal of Complexity and Education, v14 n2 p54-59 2017
There are similar, non-linear complex dynamical systems that underlie the epigenetic development of young children. This paper discusses the confluence of research on brain functions; a body or research that informs the characteristics of young children's play and imagination; and the ways in which young children acquire fresh perceptions and cognitions. Focus on the spaces among components of physical and interpersonal relationships can illuminate the processes of these non-linear, complex, dynamical systems. Particular implications are relevant for educational practices.
