The Smartest Innercity idea won by Leiden and Évora!

Smartest Project of the Netherlands 2016: Carolien Rieffe and colleagues won the award for their research on toddlers’ playground behaviour. The researchers made use of an innovative technique: they attached sensors to the children’s clothes in order to follow their interactions in the schoolyard. This resulted in new conclusions about playground behaviour and the importance of physical play for the socio-emotional development of children.
