Teenagers « Everyday Childhoods

From this page you can explore individual case studies of each of the young people involved in the Face 2 Face project. As part of the Face 2 Face study we recruited a new panel of participants aged between eleven and fifteen years, representing a diverse range of teenage lives.

Each research participant is represented here by a gallery image and by clicking on their individual image you can access an interactive multimedia document of a day in their life hosted on the interactive presentation platform Prezi. These documents are multimedia representations of ‘day in a life’ micro-ethnographies which involved researchers spending an ordinary day with each young person and documenting their lives across home, school, leisure spaces etc. Each multimedia document combines sounds, photographs and videos, providing an interactive, visual and sonic representation of a day in each young person’s life. At the end of each multimedia document you can also learn about objects that the young people selected as part of ‘favourite things’ interviews.

Technical note: Prezi’s multimedia documents are viewable on most computer web browsers
with an up-to-date version of Flash. To access Prezi on an Apple iPhone or iPad you will need to download Prezi’s free app. Unfortunately no Prezi app is currently available for Android devices.
