Play-based learning explained in 100 words or less.

Play-based learning is a teaching and psychology philosophy that focuses on using guided play and free play to teach specific learning concepts in the classroom or at home. Activities can range from a learning game, craft, to a play activity.

Play-based learning creates an environment that allows a child or student to be challenged just above their current ability. Using a play-based teaching strategy the brain can learn a new concept in 10 to 20 interactions. Whereas, with rote memorization (memorizing a fact like 2+2=4 over and over), it takes the brain 200 times to remember or learn the concept.
