TEDxRochester - Scott Eberle - 11/02/09

Scott G. Eberle, Vice President for Interpretation at Strong National Museum of Play? in Rochester, develops exhibits on toys and play, and writes about these topics. To quote Scott, "Once we were all experts at play; as children it was our preoccupation and our main mode of learning. Play was the way we built our muscles, and it was through play that we knitted our friendships. Through play we learned to navigate the social world. We learned the rules. And play helped us imagine our future. Even if we did not grow up to be Jedi knights, or beautiful princesses we learned to envision adult power and responsibility. But imaginative play and rough and tumble play, because they are the work of children, tend to slip beneath our notice as adults.
