Stephanie Owens, Ph. D., has been working in the field of education for 20 years, at the university level and in K-12 public schools. Her training as an Educational Psychologist focused on the education of pre-service teachers who were pursuing education degrees with a teaching license. This work continued during Dr. Owens’ tenure as an educational consultant for Expeditionary Learning, a nationally recognized reform organization in K-12 public education. More recently, she has received training and contract work writing curriculum at a national level that is aligned to the new Common Core State Standards. Dr. Owens’ former doctoral-level research program informs her work as a practitioner. This research focused on the evolution of play and how it functions to create culture by being a fundamental learning environment. We’re in deep play as a species – play defined as possibly having very real consequences (e.g., rock climbing, homesteading, etc.). With impending ecosystem collapse, our youth should be equipped to create the ‘what ifs’ that may create a new sustainable reality for humanity. This deep engagement can only be achieved through our evolved learning framework – play.
