The aim of this intellectual output is to develop a set of instruments, protocols, procedures, materials and case studies on the implementation of student voice and active learning. The content of the toolboxes will support teachers and schools to implement different models of working in partnership with students, giving them voice and develop their skills and attitudes to become responsible and democratic citizens.
The toolbox include:
- Ideas for pedagogical practices that support a greater focus on student voice and working in partnership with students.
- Ideas for formative and summative assessment approaches that make the role of student voice explicit.
- Video examples for some of these practices, protocols and procedures to be used when gathering examples of student voice practice to be shared within and beyond the school.
- Tools to consult with students more generally about their learning and their experience of school as learning environment. - to provide more generally about their learning and their experience of school as learning environment.
- Models of working in partnership with students
MODELS of working in partnership with students are guidelines for systematic and sustainable increase of students' engagement and participation enhancing student-teacher relationships in the classroom at national and transnational level. The aim of the models of working in partnership with students is to empower teachers to integrate tools and strategies collected and designed within the project. The models can be implemented by the primary and secondary teachers.
The Models include:
- Guidelines for a student centred approach to teaching and learning, increasing the students' engagement and participation in their own learning.
- Guidelines for enhancing student - teacher relationships in the classroom, establishing and developing effective professional learning communities.
- An overview of different models of working in partnership with students in a variety of school contexts which will be underpinned by democratic engagement and respect.
- Continuous professional development (CPD)
All CPD activities support an active professional development of teachers' capacity of increasing student participation. Bringing the project ideas of BRIDGE directly into the classrooms in a systematic way is important for supporting students in their learning by placing them into the central focus.
The CPD includes:
Case studies, seminars, study groups, activities etc.:
- To support an active professional development of teachers' capacity of increasing student participation in a classroom/school.
- To supporting students in their learning by placing them into the centre.
