Project: Research

Project Details

Project Description

The main objective of this project is to research the co-development a short, stand-alone and ‘off-the shelf’ resource for publication on PTV’s website. The co-developers are Year 5/6 students and their teachers.

Findings from the initial stage of research indicated that there was potential interest by teachers for the development of an education resource that has a more general focus on Public Transport but that is interactive and engaging. To develop the resource and satisfy the desired project outcomes, the following methodology is proposed:
· ‘Map-out’ the resource’s content and format in conjunction with the users of the resource – students and teachers.
· Concept testing with teachers via qualitative interviews.
· Co-creation workshops with students and teachers
· Finalisation of ‘off-the-shelf’ resource
· Alignment of the ‘off-the-shelf’ resource to a STEM Education makerspace scenario
· Makerspace evaluation with students and teachers via observations, interviews, artefact analysis
