Hassinger-Das, Brenna; Palti, Itai; Golinkoff, Roberta Michnick; Hirsh-Pasek, Kathy – Journal of Cognition and Development, 2020
How can we transform places where people gather or wait into hubs for interaction and playful learning? Bus stops offer one setting in which to test this idea.

They have to be able to get…
