Video: Tell and Show – Student Voices Spur Action

When it comes to solving the greatest challenges of our times, who better to enlist than those with the most at stake? And yet the voices of young people — whose futures hang in the balance — are often missing from conversations around critical issues. Two events this month seek to change that trend: the Clinton Global Initiative University (CGI U) 2013 and Student Voice Live!

Giving students their say

Student voices came through loud and clear at last week’s at CGI U 2013. In a series of interviews at the event, student attendees shared their insights about technology in education and in igniting global change:

Action plans for global change

CGI U attracted more than 1,000 students from around the world who exchanged ideas, developed action plans and attended educational sessions to address global challenges. You can watch full replays of key sessions online now.

Dell, a longtime proponent of educational and women’s advancement, was a sponsor of the event. Steve Felice, president and chief commercial officer at Dell, participated in a panel, A Better Future for Girls and Women: Empowering the Next Generation, and shared his thoughts on the subject afterward.

Student summit focuses on education

On Saturday, April 13, Dell presents Student Voice LIVE!, a student summit in New York City. The summit was created for and by students to discuss and take action on educational issues that are important to them. Topics will include personalized learning, uncommon learning routes and the connection between entrepreneurship and education.

The student summit is created in collaboration with Student Voice and is supported by Microsoft and Intel. Learn more about the event and how you can participate, visit the Student Voice LIVE! website.
