How to Research With Children Online


Building upon perspectives based on children’s rights, this guide investigates the principles and concepts of researching with children and how these are applied in children’s everyday lives and contexts. The opportunities and challenges of researching with children online are explored, including the different methodological approaches and ethical implications of conducting research with children in digital spaces. The guide features discussion of ethical considerations, such as privacy, anonymity, consent, and safeguarding, whilst researching with children online, as well as different child-centred approaches to conducting research, such as the use of digital media and visual methods. The guide concludes with a practical reflection upon a case study of an online qualitative multi-modal project with children and young people about their experiences of returning to education during the COVID-19 pandemic.
