Student Voice Collaborative

Student Voice Collaborative | Student Voice and Choice | Scoop.it
Mary Perfitt-Nelson's insight:
A lovely collaborative that lifts student voice in NYC.
The Student Voice Collaborative was established in 2010, with hopes of generating a wave of student-led change across NYC public high schools. SVC brings together students from across the City to affect the sorts of change they want to see in their schools and support one another along the way. While the program started as an initiative of NYC Department of Education Network 102 (read more about networks), with the participation and enthusiasm of 12 pioneering students from 5 high schools, it has been growing each year. Today, the collaborative is proud to include 36 students from 16 schools across 5 networks.



The Goal

To improve our selves, our schools, and our school system, together.

Motivation, Engagement and Student Voice

Mary Perfitt-Nelson's insight:

EDITORS’ INTRODUCTION TO
THE STUDENTS AT THE CENTER SERIES
Students at the Center explores the role that student-centered approaches can play to deepen learning
and prepare young people to meet the demands and engage the opportunities of the 21st century.
Students at the Center synthesizes existing research on key components of student-centered approaches
to learning. The papers that launch this project renew attention to the importance of engaging each
student in acquiring the skills, knowledge, and expertise needed for success in college and a career.
Student-centered approaches to learning, while recognizing that learning is a social activity, pay particular
attention to the importance of customizing education to respond to each student’s needs and interests,
making use of new tools for doing so.
The broad application of student-centered approaches to learning has much in common with other
education reform movements including closing the achievement gaps and providing equitable access to
a high-quality education, especially for underserved youth. Student-centered approaches also align with
emerging work to attain the promise and meet the demands of the Common Core State Standards.
