The COVID-19 Pandemic placed great strain on students, teachers and the education system. Part of identifying the impact of the Pandemic is to understand how student participation, or 'student voice', has been affected. Student voice can vary from simple self-expression to taking on a leading role in aspects of school life.
With this in mind, UNESCO and the Council of Europe have developed a survey, as part of a broader cooperation, to better understand some of the effects of the COVID-19 Pandemic on student voice.
The survey is aimed at secondary school teachers from Europe, the Middle East and North Africa. The on-line survey, available in English, French and Arabic, will only take around 10 minutes to complete. So, if you are a teacher in a secondary school in the above-mentioned regions, this is your opportunity to give your opinions and share your experiences by clicking here
The outcomes of this survey will feed into the content of a joint conference to be organised in cooperation between UNESCO and the Council of Europe on 23-25 November 2020 under the title: ‘From making student voice heard to active civic participation: The role of schools in the digital age’ .
Teachers who participate in this survey will also be invited to participate in the conference online. Some school projects may be selected to be presented during the conference.
