Language and Power: Interview with Tuuli From, PhD Candidate at the University of Helsinki’s Faculty of Education
“The single story creates stereotypes, and the problem with stereotypes is not that they are untrue, but that they are incomplete. They make one story become the only story.”
— Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Perhaps the most powerful aspect of the personal narrative is not in the content itself, but in the act of telling those very stories and having an audience that places value in listening to those stories. The purpose of Voices in Education is to provide a platform to facilitate just that.
Voices in Education is an attempt to rebalance the dominant narratives that drive education policy, Educational Technology (EdTech), education research and the many other pieces that contribute to our broader systems of education. By bringing together a diversity of voices–through interviews and reflections–this platform aims to allow the personal narrative to become a powerful driving force in social change.
