Presentation Abstract Summary (概要):

  Malu Sciamarelli will explore how teachers can offer activities that: provide role modelling of playfulness; support and value creative thinking; lead to active engagement; and help develop the critical skills for children to learn a language through play.

  Playfulness can help foster a desire for lifelong learning in our students as well as an ability to adapt throughout their lives. It provides the base for our students to be able to explore better opportunities to create and develop their own future in a global age. Malu is from Brazil.
