“So how would a six year old make an ident anyway?

2W ident

A group of six-year olds spent two days creating and filming ‘stop motion’ animations in clay to be broadcast by BBC Wales 2W (the Welsh equivalent of BBC2).

The final results were broadcast and are available on the South Wales Argus website.

The key questions for me are:

  • What did the children learn? According to themselves? According to their teachers? According to the researchers from
  • How would their work have been assessed?

These are six-year olds. What might sixteen-year olds do if given the chance? Does our assessment and qualifications system allow that chance?
