This session of the Virtual Coffee Shop podcast features a conversation with Anita Brooks Kirkland, Jane Mitchinson and Jen Taylor exploring the idea of education co-existing with covid-19. There are many implications to consider with K-12 education in September 2020, virtual libraries, use of technology, collaboration, equity and change of practice to name a few.
Pour a cup of your favourite coffee bean brew and enjoy the conversation with Anita, Jen and Jane.
This Virtual Coffee Shop podcast is a follow up to to this podcastwith Shannon Clark recorded one year ago after meeting Shannon in April 2019.

Over the last couple of weeks I have have the pleasure of working with Noa Daniel (@noasbobs) to prepare my guest session with her for the Personal Playlist Podcast (P3) on Voiced Radio.
The approach used for the podcast series is based on a practice that Noa uses in her classroom. I was asked to choose 3 songs: nostalgic, identity, pick-me-up/inspirational. The podcast conversation focuses unpacking the songs, why these particular ones were selected and why they are important to me.
I found this approach to be a great experience. To me, the idea of bringing personal music choices and relating them to one’s personal story is very powerful. I can certainly see why this would be effective in classroom setting. Noa is a wonderful host and I appreciate having the opportunity to be welcomed to her podcast series.
Here are the links to Noa’s podcast and blog post.
I had a wonderful recent opportunity to connect with Ontario teacher Scott McKenzie to record this podcast on his approach to embracing coding in the classroom, how his approach has changed and evolved over the last few year and catch a glimpse at “what next” in Scott’s classroom.
I hope listeners appreciate Scott’s open and reflective conversation. Head to the kitchen, prepare a fresh brew and enjoy this conversation with Scott McKenzie.

One of my highlights from attending the OMEA Interlude 2017 conference, was hearing the Six String Nation presentation by Jowi Taylor – wow, what an amazing story.
Jowi is an award winning writer, broadcaster, creator of the Six String Nation project, recipient of Canada’s Meritorious Service Medal. I was thrilled to meet Jowi in person at the conference, and honoured to host him at our home to record this podcast about the Six String Nation project concept, journey and future plans.
