Abstract

PONTES, Fernando Augusto Ramos  and  MAGALHAES, Celina Maria Colino. The transmission of play culture: some research possibilities. Psicol. Reflex. Crit. [online]. 2003, vol.16, n.1, pp. 117-124. ISSN 0102-7972.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-79722003000100012.

This article outlines possibilities of investigating factors related to the transmission of play culture. Play is actively implicated in social learning, where, among other things, routines, vocabulary, types of rules and a interactions are learned. We believe that a thorough investigation of these factors, as well as a study of these play-related categories are important. Not only because they provide opportunities for a complete description of play and occurrence of learning in a natural setting, but also because they serve as indicators for understanding the relationships between groups of children, their socialization, and involvement as agents of cultural transmission.

Keywords : Games; toys; child interaction; cultural transmission.
