Conference overview and aim

As economies and schools emerge from the pandemic, it is time to take an opportunity to examine how schools effectively support the needs of students by including their voices in the reshaping and rebuilding activities that are taking place.  Building on our commitment to empower children and student voice, agency and participation, some questions we ask are: How can student voice become more inclusive?  What were school-system priorities in the age of coronavirus? How have schools addressed the increase in highly specialised support services required such as mental health?  How was the new classroom digital interface co-designed with children and students as partners?  And how do school systems ensure the needs of the most vulnerable voices are (and will be) met?  Although these questions were as pertinent pre- and during pandemic, coronavirus has brought the matters of inclusivity even more to the forefront.  As such, three key areas we will be exploring at this conference are:

  • Inclusive student voices
  • Student voice and support services
  • Student voice and co-design/partnerships during and post-pandemic
