Episode 54 | The Stories of AIMS - Elin Anderson
< 1 day ago
Research Associate Elin Anderson joins Chris in the studio today. They discuss her transition from working with the teams aimed at 5 to 6 year olds to the teams aimed at 7 to 9 year olds. This change has been interesting for her as she has been studying how the things we learn in the earlier years get tagged onto, and built up in the ensuing years. She also relates a story which provides a note of both caution and wonder. Caution to researchers to never forget you are working with human beings, and even in low level investigations we should keep this in mind. Wonder as well about the amazingly complex world of children’s thinking.
