  • Michelle Cassidy - Mental Health, Accessible Mindfulness, and true Modern Learning September 22, 2017 11:07 am
    I’ve been thinking about the times in my EDU career when I was witness to a kind of deeper truth or source code. The moments tend to be fleeting and sometimes I missed large parts because my mind was launchd into in a different place than my ears. But, when I held the moment and flowed with the conversation I walked away feeling the satisfaction of truely learning a lesson.  My talk with Michelle, a clinician leading a Mental Health strategy for a large school board, was one of the moments where I think I got a peak behind the curtain and started to understand the inner workings of education. And a truth that emerged was that we just might be coming to place where curriculum, classroom, and mental health are seen as equal and connected components of a larger, life continuum.

  • Jen Apgar - Getting Reflective, Why Podcast?, and Productive Struggle September 15, 2017 6:18 pm
    I got a process for approaching a podcast. I usually lurk the blogosphere and twitter profiles once I find a person who piques my interest. After that my mind races, I shape questions, and then connect with the potential guest. Remarkably, cold calls and boundless curiosity have brought phenomenal people into my little EDUniverse. The plan for talking with Jen was broad and there were a few checkpoints that I thought we could pass through. As it happens when you meet a kindred thinker, single topics are enough. Jen and I got into the complexities of teacher reflective practice and never completely got out…and I loved it.

  • Jocelyn Kervin is getting a new job! August 30, 2017 1:43 pm
    When I last chatted with Jocelyn she was heading up a thriving music program and firing on all cylinders -keeping her department connected to the school, the local community, and to each other. In September, she transitions into a new position with her school board as a Digital Literacy Resource Teacher. How she shifted her thinking and sense of self from classroom teacher to board based consultancy is an awesome story.

  • Tanya Murray - Playing and Learning Outdoors August 22, 2017 12:51 pm
    I have tried in the past to get my classrooms outside. Sometimes it works others not so much. I can’t say for sure what anchors a learner to one ideal space for learning, but I can definitely say that I crave to read and write while sitting under a tree moreso than in a desk under fluorescent light. Search out the key term ‘classroom’ online and you are pretty much guaranteed to find standard stuff. Chairs, tables, and a whole lot of indoor spaces fill the top hits. Tanya is an educator that is bringing a different pov to learning design and learning spaces. Part of her new position with her school board is just that - making the outdoors accessible to all learners. And in the short convo we had, I definitely broadened my understanding of what’s possible while playing and learning outside. You can find Tanya on Twitter @InspireOutside and the website mentioned in this episode is th [...]
  • Chasing Squirrels and Que sera Sarah? Podcasts are talking about Disney August 8, 2017 2:00 pm
    I have been embarrassingly slow to embrace my inner Mickey. Just recently the full weight of my upcoming Disney family trip kinda crashed my system. In spite of the countless communications bounced back and forth between us and the kingdom since last November, I still had a few questions. Sarah and Shauna are probably two of the most die hard Disney fans I know. So in this episode I turned to them to get me in the right headspace to enter the Magic Kingdom. You can find Sarah on Twitter @sarahlalondee  and her blog http://www.sarahannelalonde.com/ You can find Shauna on Twitter @misspollock then check out her book http://www.creatingclassroommagic.com/ inspired by Disney [...]
  • Sylvia Duckworth - Connecting IRL, Public Speaking, and Sketching out Retirement July 29, 2017 12:21 pm
    Scheduling podcast connections can be challenging. Educators are busy. I first connected with Sylvia back in March to see if she had some time for a convo. She agreed to chat, soon. Between then and now she has been incredibly busy with projects, and conferences, a book release, and a bit of travel. But, patience paid off and  a lesson that I have learned vivdly with this episode is that great stories are worth waiting for.

  • Derrick Schellenberg - 1:1 Classrooms, Authentic Tasks, and The Shifting Core July 20, 2017 11:35 am
    Initally, when I found out that a 1:1 school existed in my board, I was jealous. I wanted a laptop too. I wanted my students to have laptops. Everything would be more awesome if my school became that school. If only my longview had been informed with more savvy, I am sure I could have found ways to build capacity towards Modern Learning thinking instead of bemoaning an EDU shift that I did not fully understand or appreciate. Derrick made it clear that the tech is not necessarily a guarantor for robust learning experiences. The deeper truth that emerges is that when starting a 1:1 program there also has to be a focus on 1:1 culture shift. He has spent several years working through the details of growth within his tech accelerated context and now after a few starts and stops, shows what teachers and students can do when culture and tech approach harmony.

  • Arthur Chiaravalli - Grading Less, School as OS , and the Value of Lived Experience July 13, 2017 4:23 pm
    I reallly appreciate the balance that Arthur brought to our topic of teachers going gradeless. In many ways, I intuit, that any classroom that espouses an uber feedback model before numerical, is logistically complex. The tensions to provide an absolute check box come from many constituents. And often, the gains of marks based assessments are frought with equity and cultural problems. In my personal pursuit of implementing a shift from numerical dependency I can see how the conversation is much broader and deeper than just not providing a mark for every assessment. This September, as I wrestle through my own learning in this experience, I will be glad to reach out to Arthur and the TG2 Facebook page for support.

  • Jay Dubois - Setting the stage, Choice, and Transformation June 22, 2017 5:38 pm
    Jay and I made fast friends, in truth it would be difficult not to be. His energy is infectious and his view of education draws you in and busts out the wows at every turn. He is rockin’ authentic learning experiences that are cleverly accelerated with digitools. Believe me, his fearless pursuit of the fringes of EDU inspires me to up my game; he’s pushing some of the most critical pieces of modern learning in front of elementary kids and they are totally blowing the roof off of it.

  • Theresa Meikle - Confidence, Passion, and New Beginnings June 6, 2017 4:57 pm
    I got a bit ramped up for this convo and I totally forgot to greet Theresa at the beginning of the podcast. Sorry Theresa … but it’s easy to get happy hanging with her. The joy she shares from her stories and experiences in education are what connected me to her in the first place, way back in the day when I was a part of our school board new teacher training. Then, like now, I felt her passion for teaching, learning, and student wellness in every part of our conversation.

My family is pretty busy and in the end, I gotta follow their lead … and it seems like the same deal for Jonathan So. He, like me, is trying to rock the intersection of Fatherhood and Educator. And along the way, we have found that the lessons our own children teach us can sometimes prove to be the most valuable professional development in town.

    I am so fortunate to have mentors like Derek Rhodenizer in my learning network. From the get go, he was open to sharing his podcast space with my podcast. Our convo went deep into the need for personalized professional development, we hashed out why podcasting is vital to our practice, and ended somewhere way out in the edu-universe trying to get a peek at the future of teaching and learning. Please connect with Derek on Twitter @DerekRhodenizer and on his blog derekrhodenizer.ca and on his podcast Rhodenizer’s Eduthoughts Chasing Squirrels can be found on itunes https://itunes.apple.com/ca/podcast/chasing-squirrels/id1191208370?mt=2  You can find me on Twitter

    It was pretty amazing to chat with Jen Giffen this past week. The convo flowed from calling out key mentors in her life to the power of saying yes and finally onto how ‘change’ can feel like an alien invasion.
