BRIST: Case Study 2

Author | View as single page | Feedback/Impact


The initial aim was for the teacher to engage her geography class in a real world problem by connecting with children in another country experiencing the effects of EI first hand. This was to bring this climate change issue to life, rather than reading about it in a textbook. 

This case study presents a cross country (intercultural) experiment in using technology to communicate between children to gather data from their respective local communities, to enable the ‘voices’ of those at a local level to be heard and for the children to understand the impact.  

This form of exploratory research or evaluation can be called Action Research and the teacher undertook one cycle. Next steps would be to run the cycle again and to evaluate how this pedagogical approach could be improved.
