Although research with children has gained substantial attention in child developmental studies, the methodological and ethical issues associated with research with children have not yet been sufficiently addressed in applied linguistics Based on a game design project that Dr. Butler conducted with 6th grade students in a public school in Japan, Dr. Butler addresses both the opportunities and challenges associated with conducting research with children Although I will focus on children in my talk, the same issues should be relevant to any learners being studied.
