Alanna hosts Australian learning commons leader and educator Jennifer Cain @jennifercain26 as we talk about how she programs an entire week of experiential and participatory knowledge-building using competitive, collaborative and community activities, somewhat akin to the Triwizard cup of Hogwarts, but with much more variety (although less underwater breathing is required). Jennifer shows how the significance of the librarian’s role has been pivotal in the success of her school as they have moved to remote learning during the pandemic. Jennifer provides a wealth of perspective as we compare Australia’s model and proactive response to transitioning to remote learning and the importance of a literacy and learning leader during this time.

Alanna hosts our school library panel on the topic of instigating collaboration through instruction and building that cycle. Our coast-to-coast #CollaboNation panel of experts Lila Armstrong, Sonja Clark, and Leigh Borden strategize about their menu of collaboration and making sure that the school knows their true range of skills and abilities. How can we continue to push our schools to investigate inquiry projects where the ending (i.e. diorama) isn’t predetermined? Favourites from our panel include book sets, anticipation guides, combining STEM with literacy, continuity pieces that cross all curricula and shifting school culture to embrace dissonance.Shoutouts to Jenn Brown, Christie Johnson, National Film Board, Mitch Resnick’s Lifelong Kindergarten, Lisa Unger, Reggio, Robert John Meehan, and Walter Isaacson’s The Innovators.

Alanna, Lisa and Beth unpack the 3rd and 4th quarters of the book revealing all! Spoiler alert! jump right into the second quarter of Emily St. John Mandel’s novel Station Eleven. We talk about the hallmarks of culture in the book versus the ones we might have chosen for ourselves in 2020. We even dissect why Emily St. John Mandel’s characters seems intent on preserving ‘the canon’ of literature and music. Does the novel’s timeline help or hurt all the big reveals that happen? Were we successful at unravelling the mystery as the clues were laid out? We also spend a lot of time on Tyler the Prophet and the meaning of the name of the book.
