Learners Takeover with Stephen Heppell

"There is much rhetoric today about Learner Voice and the impact that it might have towards the task of making learning more effective, and on increasing engagement. But simply asking students is not enough - we need them to engage in research and reflection about what their learning might be like. When we do, the results can be stellar. This session explores, very much around inputs from the students themselves, the makeover of a simple demountable hut to produce a wonderful classroom, fit for this millennium.

What choices were made, how was it done so affordably, how easy is it for other schools to copy any features that seem to fit their own local context and culture? Did exam results improve (they did!)? What can we learn about the changing expectations - entitlements indeed - that the students emerge with as they move on in education. What is the response of the new students 'inheriting" this remarkable learning space?

Do please come along. This is a very honest, revealing, optimistic conversation"
