theoretical views on play and social development
Theoretical Views on Play and Social Development
  • Piaget recognized the role of peer interaction and play on socio-cognitive development.
  • Erikson noted the importance of make-believe play as a form of learning about the social world and trying out new social skills. He saw this as a process of developing social competence.
  • Vygotsky identified the importance of make-believe play among preschoolers. It allowed them to initiate an imaginary situation and follow a set of rules to play out situations. Developed greater social play without the consequences of real life.
  • Sutton-Smith examined play from the standpoint of evolution. Proposed that much of preschoolers play resemble that of primates and is necessary for survival. Rough-and-tumble play promotes initative and drive which will later prepare children for certain roles as adults.
  • --Suggest that traditional developmental theories present a sanitized, middle class perspective of play. Less focus on negative attributes of play such as aggression and violence.
