Learning by Playing

Learning by Playing

We begin learning by pretending. Play is an essential learning experience in our development, for in our childhood imaginations, the real world exists for us with all its possibilities, but none of its risks. As adults, too, we learn well by incorporating the tools of these early learning experiences. Simulation and role play enable us to create a manageable version of our world where we can practice behaviors and correct our mistakes. Creating models of real-life situations prepares us to function more effectively in the real world.

A simulation is an intensive, interactive experience in which the content and roles assumed by participants are designed to reflect what people encounter in specific environments. In essence, a simulation is a simplified and contrived situation that contains enough illusion of reality to induce real-world-like responses by those participating in the exercise.
