Student Voice Day 2020

The goal of International #StudentVoiceDay has always been to bring the world together.


World Record Wednesday (#Flipgrid2030WR) 2018 asked, “Describe the world you would like to live within in the year 2030.”

#StudentVoiceDay 2019 asked, “How will you use your voice to change the world?”

#StudentVoiceDay 2020 finds millions of us around the globe apart due to COVID-19. We’ve seen student voice used in so many powerful ways. What if now more than ever, that voice was used to lift up others? What if once again, the power of technology was used to bring people together?

The educators from the Our Global Classroom (OGC) Community have connected and collaborated on a topic aimed at the topic of gratitude and giving thanks to another who has helped us during this difficult time. You’ve most likely helped someone during this time. Others have most likely helped you in some way. Let’s celebrate the good by using our collective voices! We hope that you’ll join and get inspired to amplify student voice in your classroom on May 13th and beyond.

This year’s topic (sneak preview) will hit the Disco Library on May 12th for teachers to add to their grids. Direct Flipgrid Disco Library link

For #StudentVoiceDay 2020,Β record a message of gratitude or thanks for someone who has helped you recently. Tell them how they have helped you and the difference they made. A parent, a teacher, a sibling, an essential worker, a neighbor, anyone. For additional impact, share your Flipgrid message with that person!Β

We realize that student voice happens in many spaces! In-person AND across many different technology platforms. Flipgrid has always been our go-to tool for amplifying student voice, but this year we want to be sure to bring #StudentVoiceDay to as many platforms as possible through tools that students and teachers enjoy.
