Sound Waves in Education with Noa Daniel

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.

CATC Camp 2017

It was a thrill to have the opportunity to present the CATC camp opening address to this year’s learners and staff. I believe in the importance of growth mindset, pushing the envelope and maintaining relevance. The theme for this presentation is centred around ROI from a classroom perspective.
