Learning About Culture EEF Research Trial
In 2018-2019, 9000 pupils in 400 schools across England took part in trials to find out if different cultural learning approaches can help boost primary pupils’ achievement.
Speech Bubbles was one of five projects chosen to be part of the Learning About Culture research programme led by the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) and the Royal Society of Arts (RSA). Speech Bubbles was evaluated by a team of independent evaluators led by the University of London – Institute of Education and the Behavioural Insights Team. The evaluation will look at the impact of Speech Bubbles on children’s learning and development, and contribute to research on how different arts approaches benefit children and schools.
In partnership with Peoplescape Theatre, we were delighted to be a part of this project, bringing four new 'research' schools to the Speech Bubbles family. The results of the study are expected early in 2021.
