Quite simply because what seems self-apparent isn’t always. Don’t get me wrong, I think it is obvious. But it is important to have valid stats that prove what appears so. The truth is, the dominant educational and therapeutic model is antithetical to the findings of this study. In Education, standardized tests, lecture, and indoor classrooms are the norm. More hours are devoted to the classroom experience and fewer hours are given to recess. By conducting a study that demonstrates the efficacy of “inherently enjoyable and interesting” educational activities, researchers give ammunition for advocates of the approach to demand it. Otherwise, those who prefer to conduct less effective (and more profitable) treatments/methods will win the day.
