Student Voice and Peaceful Ghanaian Elections by Samuel Afoakwah, teacher at Twene Amanfo Senior High/Technical School, Ghana. A few weeks ago, I’ve laid out the purpose and overview of my project. For todays’ post, we will dive into the execution and work flow of the project. If you haven’t read my previous post, you can find it here: http://www.pil-network.com/HotTopics/studentvoice/5285f6f4-9211-4bf7-82f2-cdc50f7bcdfc

To begin, Students administered questionnaires, conducted interviews, analyzed and evaluated results on their authenticity and validity. This required students to interact among themselves, community members and some state institutions.

I adopted the inquiry, discussion, role play (Drama) and brainstorming methods of teaching that placed the student at the center of learning. The small group technique was largely used to engage students in their studies.

Similarly, students made use of Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Publisher, Excel, Windows Movie Maker, Windows Live, Research Songsmith, Auto Photo Collage among others to collect, process, present and share their results.

A peace song that was composed with Microsoft Research Songsmith can be found here: http://youtu.be/4O1DlBO9qkM and a choral song as found:http://youtu.be/59E5T3YCJP8
