Talking to Year 2 kids

Children enjoy problem solving, experimenting and inventing. They like being active, imaginative and being part of a team. Whether it’s sport, science, art or maths, above all other aspects of learning, children value having choices. We know this because we have done our homework.

Listen! 200 Children’s Voices is a series of filmed conversations with children aged between three and eight years old talking about what, where, and how they like to learn. 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 own education. You can view more of the videos here.
