Amplifying Student Voice

Amplifying Student voice is a focus of their own cultural frame of reference with critical thinking tools with students acting on their potential to produce the high intellectual performances that can motivate self-directed learning, self-actualization, and self-transcendence.  

“Students must have initiative; they should not be mere imitators. They must learn to think and act for themselves, and be free.”
—Cesar Chavez

As a Film Director, Videographer, Editor and Producer

Video as part of the learning process has been part of Robert’s collaborations since having students (first, second and third grades) use VHS tapes to see themselves presenting. This continues since then and into the present with many of the examples on this site.

Robert Seth Price is a co-producer for The Minds of Mississippi (2013), a Thinking Foundation funded documentary film. 

The documentary captures the efforts of the educators and community improving student achievement levels through a focus on thinking, and becoming the top performing school district in Mississippi which they continue to sustain even after the devastating impact of Hurricane Katrina. 

The film was directed, produced & filmed by Robert Seth Price in collaboration with filming and editing by Charles Jones.

The HeArt Project, an out of school program that creatively links teenagers attending alternative high schools work with professional artists in workshops, public presentations, residencies, and scholarships.

Website Development and Implementation

Pedagogy of Confidence
Website visioning with The Pedagogy of Confidence author and researcher Dr. Yvette Jackson to co-develop and co-author an interactive companion site to the book and methods. I have collaborated with the content, created the website, and field testing with the website.

The CLEAR Model
Website visioning and creation for Dr. Rev Hillstrom CLEAR Model to take the process to scale.

Documentation Websites for NUA
The purpose has been two-fold: to qualitatively document the implementation of NUA initiatives with school districts, and to create a place and platform for whole district participation. There are three examples I developed, created and incorporated many of my examples of documentation:
