Caine’s Arcade: Who Says Learning Can’t be Fun?

I love this video for many reasons. It’s an amazing example of the kindness of the human spirit, but also an amazing example of how play can translate into learning.


Think of how many skills Caine must have picked up building his arcade! Critical thinking, problem solving, mathematical, literary and spatial to start. He also would have developed habits of mind like persistence, thinking independently, questioning and striving for accuracy and precision — again, just as a start. Yet it was a task that was fun, playful and instilled him with a sense of pride and ownership. Please share this fantastic story!
