Captain Jake and the Never Land Pirates practice cognitive learning techniques as they inspire children to map read. Remember the map to treasure or wherever you go, is evidence of the process of knowing in a broad sense. Children that are fans of Jake do gain a skill that develops the more they watch him and those Never Land Pirates – that skill is map writing as well as map reading. Their perception of where they are going when they go outside to play becomes an adventure. To gain an understanding of how to read a map, or write a map, helps children to use good judgement in regards to staying away from trouble. Adults are not always sure how Captain Jake and the Never Land Pirates are able to teach children so well. Find your way on a map you wrote. How did they learn that from Captain Jake? It is the process of knowing at work.
Thanks, Disney Junior, you’d love to see and hear how real children play.
