Disabled access study
This is an idea for enquiry that combines
fieldwork, ICT and citizenship. The activity is based on the work of Rob
Kitchin, whose book "Disability,space and society" is published
by the GA.
The investigation was first carried out on the South Bank, London with Year 10 students who used the enquiry to prepare for their own GCSE investigations. The results of their work can be seen here. The methods have recently been updated to take advantage of the newly launched Maps Direct service.
This study is suitable for any age group, and is a highly enjoyable, worthwhile and inclusive activity.
