Hello! I 'm Chloe Varelidi. I design and build playful products that empower humans to be creative, kind and curious about the world around them. I currently run Humans Who Play a design company dedicated to creating positive impact through play. Prior to that I was part of the early teams at the Institute of Play, Quest to Learn, the Mozilla Foundation and littleBits launching everything from top rated apps, to best selling electronic toys, to a public school based on game principles.
hi Kulaniakea 100%- thank you for the feedback and YES! play is just the beginning. It's a pathway to learning, building friendships and 21st century skills. One idea we have is to embed a "PLAY JOURNAL" to the experience, that helps children use play to not only connect with others but also reflect on their designs and iterate on their ideas. Have you heard of Anji play? their philosophy really speaks to our approach http://www.anjiplay.com/home/ thanks again!
