Informal, Real-Life Play--Building Children's Brain Connections.
Jambor, Tom
Dimensions of Early Childhood, v28 n4 p4-8 Fall 2000
Describes how children's play contributes to brain development. Details the importance of early experience for brain development, arguing that the optimal learning activities to promote brain development are complex, use many senses simultaneously, and are perceived as relevant, useful, emotionally engaging, and novel. Suggests that informal play opportunities rather than computer use supply this optimal environment. (KB)
