Hearing Student Voices

Written by Renee Webster

This video documents my work supporting students to use digital voice recorders for "book talks" that allowed them to be active participants in their own processes of inquiry and learning. Sharing their "smart thinking" with each other, and hearing their own voices in the recordings made such a difference in the kind of inquiry and learning process we went through together.

"As a learning community, we replayed these conversations many times to notice how smart our brains were as we named each others' wonders, predictions, connections, inferences, and theories embedded in the saved conversations."
