BJET – Call for papers for a Special Issue On Student Voice

Student Voice: Listening to students to improve education through digital technologies

Guest editors: Valentina Grion, Stefania Manca, Cristina Devecchi and Ale Armellini

This Special Issue aims at promoting scholars’ and practitioners’ reflection with particular reference to the three trajectories of development of Student Voice in any educational context from primary to higher education:
• Student Voice as a key tool to improve teaching and learning practices
• Student Voice as a key tool to play a more “civic” role and a new agenda on social impact
• Student Voce as a key tool to support students in the development of the skills required to become research collaborators and leaders within such processes

Contributors are encouraged to provide in-depth analysis on the specific role played by digital technologies in creating a space for student voice: how are students heard? How are their views taken into account in the design, monitoring and assessment of their learning? How is technology, and digital technology in particular, used to enhance their participation and engagement?

The call is open to theoretical, empirical studies, reviews of the literature or critical analyses carried out in the area.

Deadline for submissions: 1 March 2016
