Play-based learning is a form of learning that is fun and enjoyable. The premise of play-based learning is that children learn best through first-hand experiences when they are active and involved in their learning. Play-based learning involves guidance by a teacher who directs attention to specific elements of the play activity. The teacher can draw parallels between the play activity and a real-world problem, or provide encouragement and feedback on children’s learning.
