Gaming is a diverse practice that occurs across multiple platforms, devices, and settings and is ripe for deeper study. This series features work that explores the meaning making that occurs when learners design, observe and/or play digital and nondigital games in various contexts. In this way, the series highlights the nuances of the participatory ecologies that are essential to game play and that may inform practice and pedagogy.

We invite scholars to submit proposals that offer a unique or innovative understanding of gaming and meaning making. Books in this series may be conceptual, theoretical, and empirical and can be edited compilations, anthologies, single-authored, and co-authored texts. We invited interested authors to submit proposals relating to gaming ecologies and pedagogies to Hannah R. Gerber, or Sandra Schamroth Abrams.

Chapter 1 Reimagining Child-Parent Research


How can child-parent research be reimagined? This introductory chapter offers a historical context of children doing research and develops a conceptual framework for understanding facets of child-parent research. The premise of this line of inquiry includes authenticity, empowerment, and insight. The authors contemplate the range of involvement and partnership and provide a wheel metaphor to capture the dynamic and nuanced interplay of dialogue, critical reflection, ethics, tension, and participation. There are ethical concerns addressed through a critical discussion about hierarchies, power, and voice in child-parent research, which hinges on a shared purpose and requires an approach that is carefully cultivated to be egalitarian, inclusive, dialogic, and reciprocal.
