                    In this presentation, Psychology Professor Marsha Weinraub consider how sleep affects infant, child, and adolescent development. After briefly reviewing contemporary theories of sleep and describing how psychological sleep research is conducted, she reports research from Temple's lab that examines changes in sleep from infancy through adolescence. They have identified two distinctive early developmental trajectories of infant sleep which may have cascading effects on children’s cognitive, social, and emotional lives. She then describes these sleep patterns and the family and child factors that influence them, exploring how these patterns may affect subsequent changes through childhood and adolescence, and she concludes with a brief discussion of the implications of these changing sleep patterns for parenting behaviors and public policy. Marsha Weinraub is the Laura H. Carnell Professor of Psychology at Temple University and Chairperson of the Psychology Department in the College of Liberal Arts at Temple University. Dr. Weinraub has published widely on the effects of early childcare, single parenting, and maternal employment on parent-child relationships and child development.

                      3d International Conference on Imagination and Education, Vancouver, Canada, 2005. Invited Speaker: Natalia Gajdamaschko, Simon Fraser University. Abstract Despite the obvious interest of educators in the nature of play and its role in development of imagination, theoretical approaches to the analysis of play are so different that at times the picture becomes confusing for teachers. As educators, we all seem to agree that play is important and that we would like to utilize it in our educational settings. Still, as is the case with most things in educational affairs, not everyone agrees on the answers to two main questions: what is the role of play in a child's development overall and what is the role of teachers in organizing play? With regard to the second question, the proper role of adults in organizing or manipulating children's play still creates heated discussions in educational circles. Lev Vygotsky, a world famous Russian psychologist who viewed play as the most important activity of early childhood, provided valuable advice on how to analyze play and its role in overall child development. Vygotsky also helped us to understand how we, as teachers, can promote the development of imagination through play. My presentation will examine Vygotsky's theory of play as the leading activity of childhood.
