This project is an extension of a larger initiative, Playful Learning Landscapes, which reimagines public spaces as hubs for play and learning. Previous work from this initiative transformed a bus-stop in West Philadelphia to provide playful learning opportunities to families as they wait for the bus.
The research team is also partnering with the Orange County Children and Families Commission, which collects data on Orange County children’s learning and development. This unique dataset will enable the researchers to examine the longitudinal impacts of a cluster of playful learning installations in a single neighborhood on children’s developmental outcomes compared to matched neighborhoods without these installations.
