What did you learn when you played as a child? Susan shares the idea of how play is making learning successful at the Museum Center for Learning and Opal School.

Susan Harris MacKay is the Director of Teaching and Learning at Portland Children's Museum where she provides leadership to the Museum Center for Learning and Opal School. She began her work as a public school teacher because she believed that inviting young children to share their ideas had the power to change the world. 20 years later, she is no less passionate, even more convinced, and feels privileged to have the frequent opportunity to work with other educators committed to supporting children to launch their ideas, and also to communicating and making visible the tremendous worth in those ideas, not only to the world but to the children themselves.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
