voice conversation about "play"

Last week we were talking a lot about "play" in class and this ended up seeping into another conversation in one of my other classes outside the 360 with Anne. Here's a link to that conversation if any is interested/wanted to further our conversations about the links between play and learning: /exchange/divergent-thinking#comment-139691

I think some of these comments are relevant to our voice discussion about what play means or does not mean!

definitions of play

which emerged in our discussion today, and which i found helpful:

Jody's (via Dan): "a moment in which you are liberated from
your social position, and forget that you have to negotiate one"

sdane: "pushing against what you are expected to do"
