Marc Armitage

Marc Armitage was born and trained in the UK and now calls Melbourne Australia home. Working as an independent professional Playworking consultant, writer and researcher in children's play and the wider social worlds of children and young people, Marc regularly travels the world lecturing, researching, consulting and imparting his knowledge on the importance of playing in learning in both school and non school sectors.

Marc’s particular area of research is in studying what and how children play when they are not usually in the presence of adults and asks how this knowledge impacts on our practice and delivery in early childhood education, school and playwork.
