Piscitelli, Barbara, McArdle, Felicity A., & Weier, Katrina L. (1999) Beyond "look and Learn": Investigating, implementing and evaluating interative learning strategies for young children in museums. Queensland University of Technology, Australia.



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

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.
