“What do you value most about consulting with young people?”

  • The Tram Man

  • What did we want to find out:

  • How effective is live interpretation as a learning tool?

  • Why is the “Tram Man” so popular with both schools and general public?

  • What could we do to improve the experience?

Example: Evaluating Live Interpretation

Example: Evaluating Live Interpretation

  • How did we find it out:

  • 2hour facilitated workshop

  • Observed costumed Tram Man experience

  • Creative activity- What stood out for you?

  • Tram Man Quiz – delivered by “the Tram Man”.

  • Follow-up session 4 weeks later in schools

  • Key Findings

  • Engagement levels were high during the session

  • Dressing up was popular with most with the exception of the older girls, who were “embarrassed” in front of the general public.

  • The handling objects, including a tram, were referred to the most.

  • .The historical context was harder for the kids to understand.

  • All liked the character, and even felt he may be “too scary” for younger children.

Example: Evaluating Live Interpretation

  • Plan your session but be prepared for the unexpected!

  • Treat the young people with the same respect you would others

  • Always explain the purpose- why are they here?

  • Set out the ground rules, and explain the limitations

  • Make sure the venue is “safe” and everyone feels comfortable

  • Make sure everyone has a voice to contribute, be aware of the group dynamics

  • Make it a fun experience, so they want to work with you

  • Don’t be afraid to try something different….

  • Always, always, always supply biscuits, cakes, sweets…..

Some do’s and don’ts …
