DFI collaborates with Teachers College faculty and community members to create and support the creation of media for use in pedagogy, scholarship and research. Together we produce original podcasts and video series, support multimodal research, and provide trainings and resources to foster the use of media to create connections within and beyond the university.

Pop and Play Podcast: Season 4, Episode 9

Children's Immersive Play

This week Haeny and Nathan get schooled. Specifically they visit the first grade classroom of first-grade teacher and education scholar Carmen Llerena and talk to some kids! They learn how to play pirates, all about Rainbow Friends, and how to navigate conflict through pretend play. They talk about how kids use available materials to play in unexpected ways, the role of adults when it comes to shaping spaces where kids play, and learn about how easily imaginary worlds emerge from a pile of blocks.
