The project aimed to:

  1. Respond to learner diversity in inclusive ways through the active participation of children;
  2. Enhance the access, participation and learning performance of all children, ensuring that no child is marginalised;
  3. Use a research-based model of teacher professional development that encourages dialogue between children and teachers;
  4. Design new techniques for generating the views of younger children, including ways of involving them in carrying out research in their schools; and,
  5. Measure the impact of using such approaches on teachers’ thinking and practices, and on students’ engagement (attitudes and behaviours)
