Bruner’s (1966) three key questions might be useful starting points for developing children’s research and provide a common focus for children from different countries. Technology may be used to enable children to share their research relating to everyday lives with children elsewhere in Europe. A network of support to disseminate children’s research on everyday lives would encourage children to look beyond their own national boundaries. It would extend children’s awareness of the similarities of human experience over time and contribute to developing a collective consciousness of human endeavours.
