Following on from two successful exhibitions towards the end of last year, the Society has launched a new set of educational resources based on our Field Research Programme, Migrants on the margins. Our schools team has worked closely with the lead researchers on the project to produce a range of posters, podcasts, animations, videos, fact sheets and lesson plans.
The resources, which have been funded by the Global Learning Programme, provide a wider context to Migrants on the margins and feature key concepts including migration, urbanisation and the nature of changing cities.
The posters explore how cities are changing, the causes of migration and why people move; while the videos feature the research team describing the study cities, the research methods and the importance of the project. A podcast with the Principal Investigator for the project, Professor Mike Collyer, delves deeper into the day to day issues of those living on the margins. You can listen to it below.
The resources are suitable for all Key Stages and more will become available as the research continues and the team disseminates their findings over the coming year.
Take a look at our new resources.
