When students have a greater voice in the classroom and take on leadership roles, they develop stronger communication skills, take on a larger investment in their learning, and become stronger leaders in their school. When teachers are "in charge" students have less of a decision making role in the classroom and are not as active in the learning. When students get to direct their own learning, they take on responsibilities and work on a higher level.
When students collaborate and share their learning to a larger audience, they become more connected to the learning.
