Perspectives on schooling from early adolescent video diaries

Barton, Georgina and Bahr, Nan (2013) Perspectives on schooling from early adolescent video diaries. The International Journal of Technologies in Learning, 19 (4). pp. 63-75. ISSN 2327-0144


Abstract: The aim of this project was to gain the voice of the early adolescent (aged between 11 and 13 years) about the things that are genuinely important to them in their lives. Eight participants were asked to record a private video diary entry each night for one week. A number of thematic topics were identified including: their experiences and perspectives on school curriculum and assessment, opinions about schooling structures, and importance of friendship and family. Giving young adolescents the opportunity to voice their opinions has been valuable in gaining insight to the relative impacts of teaching and learning approaches in their school contexts and the issues they consider as the most important in their lives.
