Katarina Habe, Katarina Zadnik and Katarina Kompan Erzar, University of Ljubljana, (SLO)

Katarina Habe, Katarina Zadnik and Katarina Kompan Erzar (University of Ljubljana, (SLO)) present a methodology that enables holistic evaluation of radiophonic plays for the youngest. Because of the developmental-psychological specificity, it is necessary to choose methodological approaches suitable for this age population. The presentation starts with an example of good practice – using the triangulation method of data obtained on the basis of children's drawings (figurative expression), children's answers (verbal expression), and analysis of behavioral responses (behavioral expression) after listening to the radio material, and supplemented with a sound-musical analysis of radio works.
