  3. How is play an intellectual space for the enactment of culture and social #literacies?
  4. How does play inform #literacies as sociopolitical and sociocultural act, even for young children?
  5. How can we (as researchers, educators, and activists) create space for multi#literacies through play, given standardized curriculum and policies for elementary students?
