How to collect audiovisual data in a research with very young children

Lucrezia Crescenzi Lanna


Research with children is known in the field of psychology and education to be more complex than research with adults, due to strict ethical principles, the preparation of the environment, etc. Thus researchers must prepared carefully the data collection process to avoid wasting time and effort. In this proposal we show some resources in support of research with very young children, designing a specific data collection process. We present some solutions to common problems in this type of research, hoping they will also be useful in other contexts or areas of study. The data collection technique has been particularly effective because children are free to move and act in a familiar environment, without it interfering with the activities to develop or quality of the data collected.
