Talking to Prep kids

Where do you like to learn? This is what we asked children in Prep. Turns out, children enjoy learning in lots of different places and spaces including at home with parents and friends, outdoors at the beach or in the playground and in community spaces like museums and libraries.

We filmed these discussions as part of the Listen! 200 Children’s Voices research project. Together with the Griffith Institute for Educational Research and the department’s Metropolitan region, the study focused on the importance of listening to children’s ideas about their education. You can view more of the videos here.
