As an educational leader do you ask yourself:
What does student voice look like in schools and centres of learning and how can we extend our understandings of its potential? Where are the places/spaces that students and their voices are welcome and a sense of student agency is generated? What potential does student voice have to enable transformation in teaching and learning approaches in schools?
Discussion opportunities will follow Rachel’s provocation with thought explosions, new ideas and possibilising encouraged by all who attend!
