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

The objective for the funding is that access to ICT is improved for users of service, family carers and staff to enhance the quality of life offered with the service and improve opportunities for learning. ARP was appointed to undertake a quantitative and qualitative evaluation of the effectiveness of the grants distribution process. The report doesn't seek to evaluate the impact of the grants but on the investment process itself, and the various ways to distribute £12 million fairly across the sector of approximately 25,000 social care providers.
