Learning through play for Piaget was defined as a movement through practice play, imaginative play, and continuing on to play with a set of rules. On the other hand, Vygotsky thought that children could be assisted in moving from their level of performance to a level of what they could have a potential of doing.

    THE POWER OF PLAY BASED LEARNING: Research confirms social emotional development occurs through play Think about how many hours you’ve spent as a parent reading to and playing with your kids. Probably more hours than you can even count.   During play, individuals take on the roles of different people and pretend to be them to express their expectations. This process of role-playing is key to the generation of self-consciousness and to the general development of the self. People must comprehend the rules of the game and internalize the roles of everyone else : Ashley Crossman.

    Vygotsky has developed a sociocultural approach to cognitive development. He developed his theories at around the same time as Jean Piaget was starting to develop his ideas ('s and 30's), but he died at the age of 38, and so his theories are incomplete - although some of his writings are still being translated from Russian.

The role of play in children’s development: a review of the evidence White paper ISBN:   In an essay on the role of play in development, originally published inVygotsky commented, as follows, on the apparent paradox between the idea that play is.

Play gives children opportunity to practice problem solving and decision making abilities, two important elements of cognitive development. Play can have a significant role in the development of a child’s creative abilities. The development of creativity is also related to cognitive development because creative thinking contributes to problem solving.

Role-play is a particularly effective way for children to inhabit a fictional world, imagining what the world of the story would be like, and illuminating it with their own experience.

It enables children to put themselves into particular characters' shoes and imagine how things would look from that point of view. Read Walter and Marcia's book From Play to Practice: Connecting Teachers' Play to Children's Learning.

Marcia L. Nell is a professor at Millersville University and serves as the Director of Research and Professional Development for the Institute for Self Active Education. The important role of play-based learning in fostering young children’s cognitive development has been discussed by early theorists, educators, and researchers such as Plato (p.

24), 1 Froebel, 2 and Gesell; 3 later theorists and researchers such as Bruner, 4 Erikson, 5 Piaget, 6 and Vygotsky; 7 and more recent theorists and researchers such as Bodrova and Leong, 8 DeVries, 9 Fein, 10 and Singer & Singer.

11. DEVELOPMENT Play is essential to development because it contributes to the cognitive, physical, social, and emotional well-being of children and youth. Play also offers an ideal opportunity for parents to engage fully with their children.

Despite the benefits derived from play for both children and parents, time for free play has been markedly reduced. The idea that children engage in play on a regular basis is a belief that is universally held to be true.

This truth can be found across cultures and throughout the history books; however, the content of children's play differs across time and space. There is some evidence that play may also transcend species. The young of many other animals seem to exhibit behaviors that are similar to the.

In speaking of play and its role in the preschooler’s1 development, we are concerned with two fundamental questions: first, how play itself arises in development – its origin and genesis; second, the role that this activity, play, has in development, and its meaning as an aspect of development in a child of preschool age.

Perhaps the most striking finding about play comes from research with animals in which play—specifically, rough and tumble play—has been shown to promote early brain development. When young rats play, their brains become primed to be more adaptable in later life (Pellis, Pellis, & Himmler ), especially with social skills and executive.

Some of the major theories of child development are known as grand theories; they attempt to describe every aspect of development, often using a stage approach.

Others are known as mini-theories; they instead focus only on a fairly limited aspect of. Play reflects the development of brain areas. This is what Piaget called “practice play.” Sight, sound, touch, taste, smell: These are the ways babies learn about the world.

This is why the best infant toys are usually brightly colored noisemakers. Play training can be one enjoyable and effective way of improving skills in language development, cognitive development, creativity, and role-taking. 23 Most experts in play research believe that a balanced approach is best.

4,18,19 There should be good opportunities for genuine free play. Imaginary play and role play typically involves verbal communication. hen children participate in dramatic types of play, they copy and practice the words they have heard others saying. This ultimately helps develop vocabulary and language skills.

Vygotsky’s theory of cognitive development centered on the ideas that social interaction and imaginative play are large contributors to the process of cognitive development in children. He believed that the social interactions that children engaged in helped them to both discover and create meaning from the things that they discover.

One thing can be agreed upon, though: Play is beneficial and essential for a child's development. Through play, kids learn to make decisions, exercise self-control, respond to challenging situations and follow rules. Social play helps kids make friends, and it makes them happy [source: Gray].Author: Yves Jeffcoat.
