Open Access research that is helping to improve educational outcomes for children

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Education, including those researching educational and social practices in curricular subjects. Research in this area seeks to understand the complex influences that increase curricula capacity and engagement by studying how curriculum practices relate to cultural, intellectual and social practices in and out of schools and nurseries.

Research at the School of Education also spans a number of other areas, including inclusive pedagogy, philosophy of education, health and wellbeing within health-related aspects of education (e.g. physical education and sport pedagogy, autism and technology, counselling education, and pedagogies for mental and emotional health), languages education, and other areas.

Abstract

This succinct paper suggests the coherence between Curriculum for Excellence and the Teaching Scotland’s Future Report. Pupil Voice is illustrated as a general concept and is offered as one mechanism teachers may use to inform curricular provision in physical education in the pursuit of evidence based practice to improve pupil motivation for physical education.
