Finland is an educational superpower, despite breaking almost every “rule” we Americans think we know about education. Wrong Turns, Right Moves in Education (Archway, 2019) investigates the differences in these systems, advocating for an educational model that focuses on quality over quantity and the social emotional growth of children through play.

The LIINK Project
Teamwork makes the dream work! But really, how cool is this? These LiiNK students in Oklahoma worked hard to accomplish this. It took 2-3 days of recruiting people to join and brainstorming how to get it done. This is how they explained accomplishing it: "One student sat down on the ground one day and another came and sat on her feet on the opposite side. It built from there. The goal was to touch the ceiling of the porch. The people who sit on the top have to climb the legs of the others."#theliinkproject #tculiink #play #recess #physicalactivity ...

The importance of unstructured play in early childhood cannot be underestimated because playing is essential to a child’s growth.

And this study was done before COVID... https://sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0091743520300128?via%3Dihub "The risks of digital devices on #myopia & the protection by outdoor exposure should become widely known. Public campaigns are warranted." @Surgeon_General @sciencedirect @SenatorCantwell @williamdoylenyc #play
