A study conducted by Becky Parry in partnership with Professors Cathy Burnett and Guy Merchant at Sheffield Hallam University and colleagues from CHOL’s Imaginary Communities project, where primary aged children create their own imaginative space to play and tell stories in as equal playmakers with their teachers and drama practitioners. The research responded to the rhetoric surrounding the digital revolution and argues for pedagogies which enable new technologies to be meaningfully integrated into the socio-material context of existing practices.
