Kids and seniors "play" for different reasons. Children learn about physics, self-control, and roles in society. Seniors combat loneliness, improve themselves, and seek to feel valued. But child's play and elder play both construct meaning. Let's discuss online in virtual reality! This week's Sci Tech Chat in Social VR informal online meetup makes reference to the International Meaningful Play Conference at Michigan State University in a 3D VR playpen full of toys! Our informal meetup in unaffiliated but we hope you'll attend both events and share what you learn and experience! PS Our host happens to live the Mirehaven active retirement community in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
