Inspired by the words of my 10 year old son, reflecting on shoes as a symbol of loss and hope.

I have just received confirmation that my application for an Innovation Grant to undertake an action research project has been successful. The Innovation Fund is a Global Learning Programme (GLP) Initiative to support school-based educators on a global learning theme in conjunction with the Institute of Education(IOE). The action research will involve working with a group of Level 1 trained teachers from Cumbria, Cheshire and Worcestershire. Teachers and pupils will be involved in the trial and development of the contents of the backpack and the research will evaluate its effectiveness as a tool for improving P4C and Global Learning practice.
