About this book

This book explores the role of students’ involvement in teacher professional development. Building upon a research study whereby pupils instruct their teachers in the use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT), the author argues that using student voice in this way can result in transformational learning for all those involved. The author presents the processes and experiences of pupils taking on the role of educators as well as the experiences of the teachers receiving such professional development from their students. In doing so, he promotes the innovative use of a student voice initiative to support teaching and learning, with the overarching purpose of improving and transforming teacher-pupil relationships. This book will be of interest and value to students and scholars of pupil voice, teacher professional development and transformational learning.

Reviews

“The ultimate goal of educators’ professional learning is to enhance their positive impact on students. Notably absent in these efforts has been the perspectives of students on how best to accomplish that. In thoughtful and practical ways, this book provides long-needed guidance on how to gain and use the essential voice of students in planning effective professional learning experiences for educators. All levels of educators will find these insights helpful.” (Thomas R. Guskey, Professor Emeritus, University of Kentucky, USA and Senior Research Scholar, University of Louisville, USA)

“David Morris makes concrete the possibilities for authentic student engagement in teacher professional development. He presents a dialectical engagement between theory and practice through a rich case study, to critique the potential for democracy in schools through students-as-producers of their own educational experiences. Inside a humanist tradition in which empowering relationships emerge, this returns to the idea that the educator must be educated: and who better to do so than the students themselves?” (Richard Hall, Professor of Education and Technology, De Montfort University, UK)

“Anyone planning to design professional development for teachers to engage with technologies should read this book. David Morris has given serious attention to innovative and trust-based partnerships between pupils and teachers as a foundation for teachers to develop their use of technologies. The implications are profound – the book forces us to wonder how any professional learning can be designed without pupil partnership as a major consideration.” (Caroline Daly, Reader in Education, UCL Institute of Education, UK)
