Growing Up Digital: Listening to the Voices

This workshop recognizes that when students’ contributions are valued and they are actively involved meaningfully in the implementation of Digital Citizenship programs they play a key role in shaping the digital culture of the school. The model used is based on the work of FutureLab UK which uses five types of participation:

  • Inform
  • Consult
  • Involve
  • Collaborate
  • Empower

What you’ll learn:

  • How to audit your school for its commitment to student voice
  • Why student voice is important
  • How to use surveys that capture the behaviours and needs of students, educators and parents
  • The models of student engagement in Digital Citizenship
  • About case studies where student voice initiatives have been successful
  • The types of opportunities for students to develop resources using multi-media or widely used applications to present at assemblies or parent/staff forums


  • Educators: Primary-Elementary, Middle School, Senior Secondary-High School.

*This workshop can be customized to be a full or half day; Elementary/Primary, Middle or Secondary/High School.
