The PLaNS Project

Research Group at University of Cambridge Enterprise Exhibition

The PLaNS research project was designed to develop a playful teaching framework and resources to improve:

  • children’s motivation to engage in producing and representing narratives;
  • the creative process of generating rich and well-structured fictional and non-fictional narratives;
  • the quality of children’s talk and dialogic thinking during collaborative work;
  • the quality of children’s written products according to the English curriculum.
