Graduate Presentation: The Connection Between Play, Neuroscience, and Meaningful Learning

TODAY is my last day of graduate school. I wrote on my facebook account last night: "I'm excited and bummed that tomorrow is the last day of grad school. I think I'm a masochist." And, that is the truest statement about my experience! I've enjoyed it, stretched my mind, and been endlessly stressed out. Since I had already been teaching for five years when I began school, a lot of the early material (this is a program designed for people who had art degrees, but no teaching degrees) was redundant.

I feel that it has finally gotten really interesting and now it is over!

I wanted to share my final presentation with you. My area of interest is neuroscience and play. And, while this area pertains to art for me, the presentation is designed for all educators. I know that in the future, I will continue to study in this area, and can't wait to see what develops.

Please feel free to share it with your teaching community!
