Symposium: Using Visual Images to Make Sense of Inclusive Education: The Account from Queensland

Carrington, Suzanne B. (2006) Symposium: Using Visual Images to Make Sense of Inclusive Education: The Account from Queensland. In 2006 AERA Annual Meeting, Friday 7 April - Tuesday 11 April, 2006, San Francisco.


For many years researchers and practitioners in education settings have attempted through processes of educational reform and inclusive school development to break down the industrial age assumptions about schools, learning, and teacher-student relationships. This project involved Australian secondary school students working as participatory researchers in collaboration with a researcher, teachers and parents. Research methodology using visual narrative techniques provided the students with a conceptual lens to view their school community: The examples of visual narrative shared in this presentation, depict problems, contradictions of exclusion and celebrations of inclusion in the lived world of the students. Photographs combined with stories represent students’ views of their social, cultural and political environment. This project illustrates how the insights of students can help break down assumptions, values and meanings that block progress to achieving more socially just schools.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
