There is increasingly interest in supporting children and young people as researchers. I would be delighted if you could tell me of any examples you know of. As far as I can see this is primarily in the form of a traditional social science approach.
What I would like to see develop is a living form of TASC used so the researcher can, through researching to create knowledge in an area of their interest/enthusiasm/passion they learn more about their values, passions and motivations, talents that they have developed and are enhancing, are developing and want to develop, their aspirations...
I will work on this.
In the meantime this is what I have found and am exploring:
The Enquiring Minds project by FutureLab looks promising!
An SEED (Scottish Executive Education Department) Sponsored Research report - The principal aim of this project is to explore the problems and possibilities of incorporating a ‘children as researchers’ perspective into the agenda of government social research in Scotland.
