Visualizing Inclusion: Employing a Photo-Elicitation Methodology to Explore Views of Inclusive Education


This case study details a research project that explored meanings, perspectives, and understandings of inclusion, using a photo-elicitation methodology. Children and young people were provided with disposable cameras and were invited to take photographs in their school setting that they felt represented inclusion or exclusion. Some of the anonymized images taken were then discussed with a range of groups of adults that included student teachers, serving teachers, teaching assistants, and academics. This case study details the methodological framework and methods employed. Two examples of images are discussed in order to draw out how photo-elicitation worked in action and the reflections that ensued.
