Talking to kindy kids

We asked kindy children how they think learning happens. Their answers were varied and insightful. The children identified that using their bodies – through listening, watching, talking and moving – was one of the most important ways to learn. They also talked about how using their imagination and working in teams improved their learning experiences.

The children’s thoughts on learning were filmed as part of the Listen! 200 Children’s Voices research project. The Griffith Institute for Educational Research and the department’s Metropolitan region conducted the study which focused on the importance of listening to children’s ideas about their education.
