I am being a bit lazy really as I am not sure where to find the information - I am looking for contemporary theorists who theorise the physical development of children 0-20 months - I can think of Piaget sensorimotor - but have drawn a blank on information. Help please?

Jerome Bruner :o
"Movement plays a central role in children's development and learning. Observe almost any infant, in almost any setting, and you will see ample evidence of this: through movement children learn about their bodies, their physical and social environments: they try out different roles and rules; they test themselves. Indeed, it might be claimed that movement, action and play make up the 'culture of childhood' (Bruner,1983).

Play, while it cannot change the external realities of children’s lives, can be a vehicle for children to explore and enjoy their differences and similarities and to create, even for a brief time, a more just world where everyone is an equal and valued participant.

Thanks Marion - I have to produce a poster on contemporary theorists on physical play - the tutor said to look at the medical/health theorists but no idea how to do this. Hopefully some others may come up with something.

Hi all,

 

I want to use that Bruner (1983) quote included on this thread. I have searched 'Child's Talk: Learning to Use Language'; a book published by Bruner on this year and the quote is not there. I need to reference it; could you please let me know which book this quote came from.

 

Kind regards,

 

Emer
