STLN2118 Encouraging Student Voice in the classroom

Presenter: Laura Zinghini

Students across primary and secondary settings often have strong views on teaching, learning and the day to day school experience. When these perspectives are acknowledged and integrated into the functioning of the classroom students can take ownership with improvements in learning outcomes, engagement and wellbeing. Providing students with the opportunity to guide their learning can also increase a sense of ownership and connection to the classroom. This session will explore the concept of student voice and agency in the classroom, and opportunities for all teachers to connect with student voice and increase student agency.
