Student Voice is important because it maximises student engagement in their learning journey.
By allowing students to participate in the design of their learning environment, they are more motivated and ultimately perform better.
Student Voice also builds student capability through opportunities to practice problem solving and critical thinking skills key to their development.
Through activating Student Voice, students offer a unique and authentic view on their learning and progress. While teachers are often good observers of student progress, they cannot be inside the mind of each and every student.
"While teachers are often good observers of student progress, they cannot be inside the mind of each and every student."
For teachers, Student Voice delivers valuable data-driven insights about what’s working and what’s not. If gathered and collated in real-time, this data allows teachers to double-down on the former and make important changes with respect to the latter.
Gathering useful student feedback is therefore a key enabler for lifting student performance and achievement.
