    "description": "<p><em>Play for play&rsquo;s sake</em> is viewed a child&rsquo;s primary occupation from which meaning is derived that transcends it&rsquo;s inherent health, educational or other such value.&nbsp;&nbsp; Examined from this perspective is to acknowledge the intrinsic contribution the <em>doing of</em> play contributes the child&rsquo;s<em> being</em>.&nbsp; The proliferation of technology in an ever-connected world offers increasingly diverse digital spaces for children to play.&nbsp; Such digital spaces present new opportunities for children to co-create new expressions of play; whether alone, with friends, indoors and outdoors, in real and in make-believe worlds.&nbsp; Despite literature in relation to play in digital spaces coming from a plethora of academic fields, this occupational perspective of play as a child-centred, autotelic pursuit remains largely ignored.&nbsp; This research will explore digital play choices, experiences, and outcomes from children&rsquo;s unique perspective.&nbsp; Furthermore, this research aims to reflect the rights and agency of children as meaning-makers and active contributors in inquiry [<a href=\"#bib3\">3</a>], using creative and adaptive approaches through the research process.&nbsp;</p>\n\n<p>It is envisioned that this research will contribute to the understanding of the autotelic nature of play in digital spaces.&nbsp; Such understanding will assist children and adults to leverage technology to ensure that meaningful playful experiences proliferate in the future.</p>",
