Podcast On Your Plan ep 44 with Dr. Gregg Garn

Dr Dean Gregg GarnDr. Gregg Garn is the Dean of the Jeannine Rainbolt College of Education at the University of Oklahoma. Podcasting with Dr. Garn was a big deal for me. I look up to him and consider him an ideal education leader. I hope you enjoy this episode and reflect on your strengths as an education leader as well.

Dr. Garn can be found on Twitter at twitter mini@DeanGarn.

Also in this episode, I relay some bad news about a lost interview from the 2016 iPadpalooza conference. It happened! I have visual proof (see below), just not audio. Anyways, it crushes me but you should still check out the infamous Justin Bell at twitter mini@jabellpepper and his website jabellpepper.weebly.com unless you hate awesome things. Then you’ll want to avoid Justin at all cost.

Podcast On Your Plan ep23 with Kenzie Pratt, Emily Chambers, and Kerry Friesen – #NCTE15 recap, day 5

Screen Shot 2015-11-23 at 9.28.55 PMMeet future NCTE keynote presenters – Kenzie Pratt (Screen Shot 2015-05-28 at 11.53.48 AM@savvybknerd), Emily Chambers, and Kerry Friesen!

Technically, NCTE 2015 is over, but #ALAN15 and #CEL15 are just beginning! I’m attending #CEL15 and they – Kenzie, Emily, and Kerry – are participating in #ALAN15 – which I’ve decided to describe as ComicCon for Young Adult Literature enthusiasts, without the costumes.

This episode was particularly fun because I enjoy working with new teachers. After getting to know each other and learning about ALAN, we get into some real talk about education, classroom challenges, and rewards. We also recap our individual highlights from ALAN and NCTE. Hilarity ensues and it was just a really fun episode for me to explore the various focuses of our educators. Oh, and we discuss the one essential book we would want to have with us should we ever get stranded on a deserted island with students and needed something to teach.
