Project Details


The aim of this longitudinal study is to investigate the perspectives held by children and teachers about the learning opportunities, pedagogical approaches and interactions in P 6 for 6 different primary school classes where the children had experienced an active learning pedagogy at the start of their formal schooling in the first year of primary school (P1). This is a follow on study based on an initial study which sought to understand the ways in which P1 children experienced the changing practices of teachers’ interpretations of Active Learning during the initial implementation of the Curriculum for Excellence.
