When students feel like they are helping drive their education and have a say in their own learning, achievement thrives. That’s been a given even when education technology was only a pencil and paper. Now, many edtech tools promise that they will help promote student voice, but how can educators tell? With years of experience using edtech to engage students, presenters in the edWebinar, “Encouraging Student Voice and Choice in the Classroom,” identified six edtech tool characteristics that give students agency in their education.
When we “flip” the learning, and have students present to educators in our edWebinars, it’s a great example of how much we can learn from our students. In a recent edWebinar, Turn Struggling Readers Into Leaders Using Assistive Technology, Gavin and Marley, two middle school students, along with dyslexia specialist Dana Blackaby, presented on their use of assistive technology that helps struggling readers. We wanted to know how they felt about playing the role of teacher to a crowd of over 800 attendees.
