    An example of Student Voice and Choice

    Health Promoting Schools is a wonderful project that has been running for several years across Canterbury and the West Coast, run by students for students. It follows an inquiry framework to focus their work. Student voice and choice is very much at the forefront of all that they do. Twice a year students run an exhibition/unconference of their learning for all schools involved.

          Kia ora,

          Our first blogpost, as part of a weekly feature, is Talking Matters, brought to you by Ann Hatherly and Sue Bridges.  

          The Power of Talk summit, including keynotes and presentations (see video links below) plus plenty of opportunities for discussion, brought together educators, health professionals, researchers, government agencies (eg Corrections, Ministry of Social Development), and non-governmental organisations (NGOs). This afforded participants the chance to explore the issues deeply from and across a range of perspectives.

          So… over to you. What can you, your colleagues, and your community do differently in your workplace to boost the power of your learners’ talk? At a time when ‘student voice’ is increasingly valued, let’s do our best to make sure that our tamariki can truly articulate their thoughts and aspirations. The world needs to listen to them!

          We would love to have you discussing this blogpost. What wonderings do you have for Ann and Sue?
