Knowledge Generated by Audiovisual Narrative Action Research Loops
Bautista Garcia-Vera, Antonio
Educational Action Research, v20 n3 p423-437 2012
We present data collected from the research project funded by the Ministry of Education and Science of Spain entitled "Audiovisual Narratives and Intercultural Relations in Education." One of the aims of the research was to determine the nature of thought processes occurring during audiovisual narratives. We studied the possibility of getting to know the Other (a person from a different culture) through stories told by the group using photographs, music and speech. This involved analysing the situations arising in those processes in which students from different cultures were able to explain their beliefs, behavioural intentions, and how they interpreted the actions of others--together with other information that enabled them to get to know and understand each other. This article therefore contributes to the emerging research line that investigates the use of action research in multicultural school settings. We also analyse and discuss the potential of audiovisual narrative inquiry in education and ethnographic research when it is organised into action research loops. (Contains 5 figures.)
