PIMLOTT-WILSON, H., 2012. Visualising children's participation in research: Lego Duplo, rainbows and clouds and moodboards. International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 15 (2), pp. 135 - 148
This paper examines the use of visual methods during research encounters with children and young people when investigating their perspectives and feelings towards their home and school life. By revealing the advantages and constraints of three visual approaches, including Lego Duplo, rainbows and clouds and moodboards, the paper contributes to the range of techniques available when conducting research with children and young people. In conclusion, the paper highlights the depth of information which can be elicited from visual techniques as well as the oral data which can be obtained through the utilisation of visual methods.
