LuCiD affiliate Phoebe Harding-Walker recently wrote a blog in Research Hive which is based on research findings from one of our recent publications.
In this study we worked closely with the Manchester Museum and an inner-city primary school to investigate which educational context better supported word learning in children – the museum or the classroom. So if you also wondered what educational context words are best learned visit Research Hive to access Phoebe's blog.
