Research behind the model
The Conceptual PlayWorld model is part of a larger five-year programmatic research called the Conceptual PlayLab (2019 - 2024).
The Conceptual PlayLab project is led by Monash Professor Marilyn Fleer (see Marilyn's research profile). It is supported by a five-year $3.2 million Laureate Fellowship from the Australian Research Council.
It also includes the Land of Learning model of teaching STEM concepts to children of early primary age.
