PhD project: Children's development of their everyday practices and competences in tension between tradition and modernity -  Participatory action research in a Berber village in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco

My project belongs to the category of actions research, focusing on children's and young people's participation and competence development in daily life in small villages . In this project, I am carrying out a participatory action research as collaboration between me as a researcher and some of the inhabitants of the  village. This collaboration is a kind of “intervention” in practices in everyday life of inhabitants in the village, which aims to develop, change and promote collaboratively and reflectively certain areas of the daily life in the village. 

My project aims to produce deeper knowledge about the mentioned tension and how it is influencing the children’s conceptualization of their daily life of today and their conceptualization of their future daily life as adults. As part of the Umbrella project Children in dreams of their future competences, my project also aim to initiate and support children´s, parents´ and teachers development of their daily practices in a way, that contribute to the development of relevant competences to realize their dreams and at the same time handle the mentioned tension in a way which they perceive as constructive and functional within their sociocultural context.
