    Evaluations of diaries and GPS-enabled trackers to plot young peoples’ geographies – asking the participants what they think2017In: Children's Geographies, ISSN 1473-3285, E-ISSN 1473-3277, Vol. 15, no 5, p. 517-530Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Insights into the personal geographies of young people can be gained in many ways, but there is not always a focus on the effectiveness of the methodologies used, through a comparison of the different approaches, nor is there often an examination of how the participants in the study perceive the effectiveness of the research methods. Two methodologies are explored in this study: self-completion mobility diaries and the wearing of global positioning system-enabled tracking devices. The study focuses on the perceptions of the teenage school student respondents in the study (n?=?15) with relation to the user friendliness, the perceived accuracy, and the ease with which travel patterns can be recreated from the data. The participants were able to evaluate the two methodologies and to make judgements on the criteria provided. We argue that participants can contribute significantly to post-research methodological reflection.

    If you are not one of them you feel out of place: understanding divisions in a Northern Irish town2017In: Children's Geographies, ISSN 1473-3285, E-ISSN 1473-3277, Vol. 15, no 4, p. 452-465Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines and reflects on the use of Global Positioning System (GPS) tracking devices as a method to understand and analyse young people?s everyday movement in Northern Ireland, a divided society emerging from conflict. The paper also seeks to contribute to the extensive body of literature which already exists on young people?s geographies and movements within the Northern Ireland context. We highlight how the use of GPS together with more traditional methods gives us considerable insights of movements of young people in Northern Ireland and sheds light on the communal divisions in one town in Northern Ireland, Coleraine. We argue that the use of a GPS methodology significantly adds to the understanding of young people?s movements and geographies, particularly in a post-conflict context where notions of place and territory have particular significance.
