NOT Student Voice

Although I am sure I have made this point before on this site and at the risk of becoming the old man who repeats himself too often, the concept here is Student Action NOT Student Voice.

Student Voice is of course a wonderful and essential element of modern education but having Digital Leaders (or whatever you want to call the students you are recruiting as part of technology integrationĀ in your school), is NOT what we are talking about here. Of course, having a voice is a part of what many of them do but it is not the main objective. Action is. Having Digital Leaders means that they are engaged in activities that involve technology and theĀ school where they operate from is actively taking steps to positively affect the use of technology in the institution.

Here is a prime example of such action. Read through this and tell me that’s Student Voice and while you’re there, please tell me that this isn’t something that should be happening everywhere. Go on.
