This video was created for the welcome to Interactivity 2012, the annual convention of the Association for Children's Museums.
The voices you hear are those of 8 - 11 year old Opal Public Charter School students, who know well the profound connections between play and learning.
These words (recorded during an unscripted lunchtime conversation) are evidence of the power of environments for learning that have as a first priority to sustain curiosity and the joy and wonder of learning -- both the wonderful and the wondering. They are also evidence of the deep pleasure of learning in itself, enough to engage and inspire and carry us on through the hard stuff.
