This empowerment evaluation methode can be used with children or adults and has two aims: (1) To evaluate health promoting activities and projects and through this create more generalized knowledge about practice; (2) To increase empowerment among the participants as a part of the process.
The Investigation-Vision-Action-Change (IVAC) model provides a framework for the development of healthpromoting strategies that ensure that the insight and knowledge that pupils acquire during the project is action-orientated and interdisciplinary and, therefore, conducive to the development of action competence.
The Model for Reflection can be used individually or in groups and consists of some guiding questions. It gives children and adults the possibility to, in a systematic way, to discover new perspectives of their actions in practice, it enables them to find other and maybe more efficient way to act, and it trains their ability to argue for actions and choices.
The Ladder of Participation contains eight steps, each step representing increasing degrees of pupil participation and different forms of cooperation with adults. The tool can be used to plan Children's participation in an activity or project. See the good practice example.
