WHAT WILL BE ASKED FROM THE SCHOOL?

VOLUNTEER YOUR SCHOOL - LIMA , PERU

If you work or are related to a school organization located in Comas, Villa Maria del Triunfo, San Isidro or Miraflores in Lima, Peru, and would like your organization to be part of our research.

 

Don't hesitate and Volunteer your School!

 

As the research will have two stages, one qualitative and other quantitative. I will hope that the school allows to:

  1. Take a quantitative “graphic scale” survey to all the students, if possible, and if not to at least one class from each grade.

  2. Recruit 24 current students aged 6 to 18 to participate in a mores in depth qualitative part of the research.

WHAT WILL BE ASKED FROM THE SCHOOL?

  1. A survey where children will be asked a pre-coded, graphic scale survey. 

Quantitave Research
  1. A ‘draw, write and tell activity’, about their understandings and ideas around happiness.

  2. A ‘photo elicitation interview’, where children will photograph key spaces of their neighbourhood. To be completed with a map making activity and semi structured interview, with selected participants.

  3. A participatory design workshop.

Qualitative Research

WHICH ARE THE BENEFITS FROM OUR SCHOOL?

  • Your school will receive an individualized School Feedback Report that includes your school’s children happiness rate.

  • Participants will have the opportunity to expose their ideas regarding their district environment to local authorities

  • Your school will receive a set of lessons on the process of qualitative research, tailored with tasks that can be assessed by the children within the courses they take.

 

Additionally it is important to point out that no costs will be incurred by either your school/centre, or the individual participants.

WILL PARENTS BE ASKED FOR CONSENT?

WHAT KIND OF ACTIVITIES DOES THE RESEARCH INCLUDES?

Yes, Once the school gives its authorization, written consent will be asked from parents and students. In both cases a letter containing full information about the project will be given to them along with a format to be answered and signed by both students and parents.
