This product includes three of the education speed sessions from the NRPA 2017 Annual Conference. Included in this bundle are:
- Learning to Create 60,480 New Games in Minutes: How about a game that creates a game? Huh? Yep! It's pretty common that child's "play" is in fact their "work." Kids are creative; at least, they can be if they set the iPad down for a few. Learn first hand how you have immediate access to 60,480 unique games. Modified from the original New Games Foundation's "Invent-A-Game," the PlayMaker Games Grid is VERY user friendly. Let's put our youth to WORK and get the creative juices flowing. It's time to get kids "back2basicplay."
- The Universal Language of Play: Play is our first universal language. From our earliest days, play is the practice to develop the basic skills of social interaction. While play is intuitive, that doesn’t mean that making great play environments is easy. Every child is different and what appeals to one doesn’t appeal to another. There are four distinct play styles of play and each is essential for the healthy development of children; they enable them to practice the skills which will make them successful individuals.
- Joyful Play the Results Driven Way: Many agencies put objectives in “SMART” format (specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and timed) to assure that objectives are measurable and they use logic modeling to focus their objectives on outcomes and impacts” (CAPRA Standards Chapter 6.0, 5th Edition). This session will provide participants the opportunity to reassemble prepopulated logic models to increase their awareness and knowledge of the value of using logic models to produce joyful play in a result driven way.
