A national ‘observatory’ of children’s play experiences during Covid-19 is being led by academics at UCL and the University of Sheffield.
The research project, known as The Play Observatory, has been funded by the Economic and Social Research Council’s Covid-19 rapid response call, to research children’s play during this unique time in history.
An online survey was released, inviting children, young people and adults to share examples of their play.
Researchers at UCL Institute of Education; the University of Sheffield and UCL Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis, have been documenting the many ways that children are playing from the outset of the pandemic onwards: by themselves and with others; indoors and outdoors; with and without screens.
