Engaging with Children
7 March 2023
In this pilot project, ADR Scotland worked in partnership with Children in Scotland to discuss with children what they believed administrative data was; whether children and young people felt that those people using their data, had engaged with them, to hear their opinions and to reassure them that their data was stored securely and their rights upheld. The feedback was that they didn’t feel that researchers and data controllers engaged with them nor wanted their opinions. Therefore, we discussed with the CYP whether they preferred written, verbal or visual communication, and hear their advice on what communication style would be more eye catching and engaging to children, such as podcasts or comics.
