Data from Oxford University Press in partnership with Storyathon, the largest story-writing event in Australia, have revealed the influence of COVID-19 on children’s vocabulary, interests and social awareness.
More than 20,000 stories were submitted by Australian children aged from eight to 14 on the topic “A different world—living in lockdown.” Analysis of the language is providing a valuable opportunity to peer into the minds of children during this unusual point in history.
