Student-Led Communications

Students can be key leaders in school communications by using texts, podcasts, diaries and blogs, conversations, presentations, surveys, assemblies, websites, notice boards, meetings, social media and forums to connect with their peers. Not just information sources, students can also plan, facilitate, evaluate and advocate for communications too.

In some schools, students have limited ability to communicate their own interests and beliefs, while in other schools students actually communicate on behalf of schools. One organization, Generation YES, encourages students and teachers to work together to use technology for communication within classrooms, throughout schools and across entire communities.
