    Mother Nature's Pedagogy: Insights from Evolutionary Psychology

    Peter Gray's research shows that the inherent playfulness, curiosity and willfulness of children has been honed by natural selection to permit each individual to educate themselves. So why are we educating our younger generation in a way that so explicitly takes away these faculties and replaces them with standardized testing? Explore the power of play and reimagine an effective 21st century education in this powerful and informative talk.

    Peter Gray
    Research Professor of Psychology, Boston College
