Future Friendly Schools - Student Voice

What makes a Future Friendly School? Through this participatory process, you will help to identify and prioritize the most relevant indicators for certification across our three focus areas of environmental stewardship, student voice, and global citizenship. We appreciate your participation and look forward to your insights! This page is for voting, commenting on, and suggesting new indicators in the area of student voice. You can switch to the other certification indicators through the links in the header.

  6. Creativity in school curriculum

    Activities in schools should have some level of creativity. Students must be given the chance to express themselves by pointing out their grievances, giving their opinions concerning the performance of their teachers etc. This makes students participatory in the affairs of the school.
    Inter-school competitions and games should be encouraged as well.

  7. Giving youth the freedom to think and analyse things in their own way and helping wid the right material to come out of the right thoughts.

    If we allow them to put their free thoughts out and then help them with generalized and unbiased thoughts to take the right decisions then we can create more global kind of environment. We can help them to see things without any boundary of language or region or religion. Teach them to value human being not the color or language. This can happen if we involve students from different sections in some group and creative activities.

  10. Students are allowed to study that which is interesting to THEM.

    As an example - if a child is interested in bicycle racing he could:
    - Learn about speed, distance, and acceleration (math)
    - Learn about aerodynamics and friction (science)
    - Study the diets and training plans of elite cyclists (physical/health ed)
    - Examine the cultural impact of events like the Tour de France (social studies)
    - Produce a final report/read bicycling opinions and op-eds (English)
    - Read reports on races in foreign languages (French as a second language)

    In this way the child exists squarely out of the box - there are no subject-imposed boundaries to his learning.

  11. Computer Literacy

    Illiteracy is no longer inability to read and write. Proficiency of a student in the use of information and communication technologies will go along way in giving him/her a voice in this generation.

  20. Design curricula teaching and assessment to be project/experiment/service/art driven; with minimal intervention from the teacher

    All classroom subjects can be "taught" effectively by letting students learn themselves. Once the basic concept is introduced by a teacher, students can work in groups or individually to solve any given real life problem/ project/ experiment/ working on field/ performing through art.
    Students begin to question, collaborate, ideate, work within/outside the classroom, and thus learn.. driven by their innate curiosity. Periodic work/project status can be monitored by the teacher.
