Una investigación en un blog

 Desde Aprender sem escola, me llega la información sobre esta investigación que ha inicicado Charlotte Rochez desde Canadá e Inglaterra. Gracias.

Charlotte nos comenta que su investigación se basa en la historia de la educación en casa desde el siglo XX hasta nuestros días tanto en British Columbia, Canada como en Inglaterra, Reino Unido. La investigación se basa en la participación y las aportaciones a las que se accede a través de entrevistas, testimonios y distintos grupos de debate. Está trabajando en una tesis doctoral, y el blog refleja aspectos relacionados con la marcha de la investigación. Le interesa convertir el proceso de investigación para la redacción de una tesis en una experiencia democrática de mano de los recursos que ofrece Internet. De manera que su blog es algo así como un experimento. Ni qué decir tiene que me identifico completamente con su peprspectiva a la hora de plantearse la investigación cara a la redacción de una tesis.
