#myvoicemyschool is a student voice project which gives young people a say in their education and future.

Palestine refugee teenagers from Syria living in Syria, Lebanon and Jordan, and their peers in three British schools took part in a pilot project supporting them to explore how education can be improved to meet their aspirations.

Over three months in autumn 2014, through live Skype video conversations and customized teaching materials, students and teachers explored the idea of quality education. Each class defined and developed a student voice project inspired by the discussion between the British and Palestine refugee students.

The classroom project provided the students the opportunity to work with different traditional and multi-media tools to share ideas internationally and to package and broadcast their finished projects to local and global audiences.

The project is implemented by the UNRWA and Digital Explorer. Digital Explorer is a London-based community interest company. It is a pioneer in the development of innovative real-world learning programmes, where global citizenship topics are explored through teacher, pupil and expert collaboration.

This  pilot phase is now completed and the programme is due to expand in 2015.

Painstakingly, it was diverse to peruse a book on the consideration and contemplation of a wary personality. I like that in particular, at any rate, the creator moved toward the theme with a similar state of mind myself. He read considerably less 'minister' and turned out to be substantially more pleasant than the others I read. At the end of the day, it did exclude things that did not abandon the possibility of mindfulness rehearse.

As an important person who has spent over partially of her life as a scholar, I can promise for the significance of school. While innovative school years are over and over again met with groans and complaint, it is our municipal duty as parents and human beings, to instruct our kids, not to talk about ourselves.
