The Curriculum Material Center's Vital Link to Play and Learning: What's the Connection?
Madray, Amrita; Catalano, Amy
Education Libraries, v33 n2 p11-17 Win 2010
Many educational theorists who study child development concur that the importance of play related materials in schools, homes and libraries is vital to the concept of play and learning. As academic librarians responsible for information literacy, and as the education liaison for the management and collection development of the instructional component in the Curriculum Materials Center, the authors of this paper will explore valuable connections between children's play and learning. Further, they will discuss how that association affects a child's cognitive development as seen through the curriculum materials and the educational support for teachers who work closely with students.
