New Learning and Old-School Games

As a child, learning was playtime. When I was young, I spent most of my time alone and entertained myself by reading or by asking my mother question after question about the world around us- why was glue sticky? Why did leaves float but rocks sink? Learning was about discovery, not rote memorization. Much like the True Blue learners in Freid’s classifications, I wanted to learn simply to learn. I asked for experiment kits for holidays rather than Barbies (granted, I thought Barbies were scary).
