What should school be?

As a part of this year’s K12 Online Conference, we are a convening a strand on Student Voices, and we want you (and more importantly, your students) to be a part of it. DUE DATE FOR SUBMISSIONS IS SEPT 26 (and if you plan to submit, let us know so we can plan accordingly).

Our keynote presentation will be a compilation of student videos telling what they think school should be. Your students can create a short 1-2 minute video answering the question “What should school be?” and we may include it in the keynote. Alternatively, if you’d like to schedule a time to get on a Google hangout with us and your students to talk about this, email us.
