The Richard B. Lippin Lecture Series: Moral Development in the Context of Group Games

Group games are a vital aspect of constructivist early education, providing opportunities for academic learning (e.g., number, logical reasoning, spatial reasoning, literacy) as well as social and moral development. Dr. Hildebrandt will discuss the comparative benefits of cooperative and competitive games, and the importance of allowing children to create and regulate their own games within democratic, constructivist classrooms.
