Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] The promotion of more participatory heuristic perspectives and devices in the field of research with children is a topic of recent interest in the international as well as national debate. Numerous studies have investigated the conditions and ethical principles that guarantee the participation of children and many others have focused their theoretical motivations. The indispensable disposition, through which to promote authentic participatory processes for children, is the recognition of their specificity, of the universe of meanings they elaborate and of the unique way of approaching the world. It follows that, when we are going to investigate the experiences and experiences of children, we must be very respectful and pay particular attention to finding the right devices to explore this particular phase of life, bringing to light their particular perspectives. In this sense, the contribution presents a methodological approach that turns out to be effective in promoting participation and enhancing children's skills, and therefore their unique and significant way of representing reality: the Mosaic Approach.
