WHO WE ARE
RESEARCHING NATURE PLAY
Researching Nature Play is a research project funded through the Education HORIZON grant scheme by the Queensland Government. The project aims to determine how you children aged 4-5 years learn scientific concepts when supported through nature play. While nature play is a popular preschool pedagogy its effectiveness to provide new knowledges by bringing together social and natural sciences, is mostly undocumented. The methodology used in the project is cartographic, focusing on creating visual maps through observations, photography, video captures, drawing and journaling.
Members of the collective are invited to submit to the Childhoodnature Collective Blog. The Blog pieces should speak to a wide audience and provide insights into theoretical ideas, overview of current research projects, art installations or curated events, responses to challenges or advances in the field, book reviews, stories, poems, or any other form of visual or textual representation.
