Seeking Younger Children's "Voices" in Geographical Education Research
Catling, Simon
International Research in Geographical and Environmental Education, v14 n4 p297-304 Nov 2005
While there has been research into children's geographical and environmental understanding, comparatively little has provided insight into children's perspectives on their geographical learning. Some depth of understanding is available about children's personal local environmental experience and about spatial cognition, but there is much about children's geographical experience and knowledge which is either not researched or where the research is very limited. Some recent research is outlined by way of identifying the need for greater research activity in the geographical perspectives of younger children.
