Beyond Look & Learn: Investigating, implementing and evaluating interactive programs for promoting young children’s learning in museums aims to establish policies and practices which strengthen the potential for young children’s learning in museums by: * documenting the characteristics of young children as learners in museums; * identifying social interactions which promote young children’s learning in museums; * analysing museum policies in relation to young children’s learning; and * developing strategies for building strong links between museums, schools and families.
Project activities: * Case studies of young children’s learning in each museum * Front - end planning for children’s participation in museum exhibitions * On-site evaluation of visitor response (young children, families, school visitors) * Policy review * Training of on-site research and design teams
