Listening to Student Voice: Thinking about ways of improving schools

Student successImage by hazelowendmc via FlickrIn this Slidecast Nick Rate gives a brief overview of student voice in four areas:
  • student voice in reflections on learning
  • student voice in student led conferences
  • student voice in learning and school design
  • student voice in a democratic curriculum
Nick uses the following quote to sum up:

"What pupils say about teaching, learning, and schooling is not only worth listening to but provides an important – perhaps the most important – foundation for thinking about ways of improving schools." Rudduck, Chaplain & Wallace (1996).

You can visit Nick's blog post and read his thoughts and ideas about his presentation, and the topics covered there.
