New York, NY (PRWEB) October 30, 2013
My Voice, a digital initiative from the Pearson Foundation, has announced a series of webinars in partnership with edWeb.net. The webinars will focus on how educators and administrators can gather critical information about students’ perceptions of their experiences at school in an effort to create more student-centered environments.
My Voice helps students articulate their school-inspired sense of self-worth, engagement, and purpose. My Voice uses surveys to gather student perceptions and maps the feedback to 8 Conditions that Make a Difference, the basis for the Aspirations Framework, a proven approach to addressing the educational challenges facing students today, backed by 25 years of research led by Dr. Russell Quaglia, founder of the Quaglia Institute for Student Aspirations (QISA).
Wednesday, October 30th - 5:00 p.m. ET/2:00 p.m. PT
