Follow-up: The coaches toolkit revisited (3): deliberate practice vs. deliberate play

Many thanks to @ImSporticus for including this post in his weekly round-up of re-posts — it generated quite a few comments.

This, from Phil Kearney: “As a means to move away from a “versus” mentality, I really like Whitehead’s description of freedom (play) and discipline (practice) as “…two rhythms, now one of which is louder, now the other, but both have a place at all stages in development”

Collected in “The Aims of Education and Other Essays” Alfred North Whitehead, 1929
