The authors are keen to hear from people interested in contributing to the development of the life-based approach to learning.
What are we aiming for?
Life-based learning represents a new way of thinking about children’s learning. It therefore offers exciting possibilities for teachers, academics and professional experts in their fields to contribute or undertake new research for the benefit of children.
We are interested, for example, in:
- University education departments contributing research papers and engaging their students in thesis research
- Case studies from teachers, curriculum leaders and organisations working at the forefront of pedagogical thinking and application
- Professional organisations and individuals contributing in their field of expertise
What are the priority areas for research?
Life-based learning is a broad canvas. The research possibilities are endless. Priority questions include:
- what could and should children be learning across the three areas of life?
- what are the possibilities for involving the expertise of organisations and individuals drawn from all walks of life in children’s education?
We will index contributions either by website link or by inclusion of documents on our website.
