Playworkings blog is written by Joel Seath (UK playworker, playwork trainer and thinker!)
This blog site was initially created as a sister site to Play Connectivity (which has now been brought here to Playworkings): currently a small collection of research and speculation papers.
Playworkings is a project imagined to keep me thinking: children’s play and playwork occupies and stimulates many, many of us in the field; we need to keep thinking, observing, reflecting, practising, writing, questioning, making mistakes, digging up moments of magic, etc.
On the rare occasion that any children’s names have been used, those names are fictionalised.
Some posts have been entrusted to the readership of those with a sound comprehension of playwork/ing only. Where posts are labelled as protected, you may read them by entering the password (lower case, one-word) which is set as the word missing from the following line of thinking:
‘Playworkers have a duty of . . .’
