When Educational Transitions Are Supported by Students
Parrilla, Ángeles; Gallego, Carmen; Sierra, Silvia
Journal of Research in Special Educational Needs, v16 suppl 1 p1104-1107 Aug 2016
This paper shows how inclusive and participative research is developed into two case studies of students facing educational transitions. The studies were developed in two different places in Spain describing different approaches to support transitions by students. The first case focuses on activities organised and developed together by students from 8 schools in the same local area to enhance a shared understanding of the experience of transitions and to explore how to facilitate and sensitize to the community about them. The second case involved a student Mutual Support Group consisting of a trained group of three students in the same school who meet regularly with self-referred mates to design personal pathways to face transitions. The paper concludes by reflecting on how student voice and participation provide a genuine and innovative means through which educational transitions can be improved.
