In play a child always behaves beyond his
average age, above his daily behavior; in
play it is as though he were a head taller
than himself.
(Vygotsky,1978)
but what about
adults? and if
adults, what about
communities?
KNOWING
BEING
DOING
BECOMING
If human activity is to produce novelty, it
includes play at its core.
(Valsiner)
Adults accepting
boundaries and
playing within
them
Kids looking
for the
boundaries
through play
(A child’s) play is not simply a reproduction
of what he has experienced, but a creative
reworking of the impressions he has
acquired.
(Vygotsky, 1978)
Play bears little resemblance to what it
leads to, and only a profound internal
analysis makes it possible to determine its
course of movement.
(Vygotsky, 1966)
