Impact of Student Voice
February 7, 2009 § Leave a comment
With our brand new learning platform being created 7 days ago, we went to student voice for their first impressions and for potential VLE names. ‘Schoogle,’ was the absolute winner, hands down, no question. ‘ If I am honest, I am not that keen on the name however the students reasoning was clear. If we need the answer about school work then we go to Google, so if its online and its about school (we tried to emphasise learning) then its ‘Schoogle.’ To them it makes sense.
So here is my dilemma. Do we listen to the students and support their branding (despite the fact the ICT team are not 100% behind it and we are a college if only in name) or to we ask them to try again? Everything is telling me to listen more closely, opportunity could be knocking at my door, only very softly. Your comments would be appreciated.
