Episode #116 Liz Dozier
Liz Dozier shares about being aware of our biases and decolonizing our minds in terms of our own biases. We have to take care of ourselves physically, mentally, and spiritually, because you can’t begin to unpack those biases if you’re worn down. It is really about remaining curious about the world around us and others’ experiences. How are schools focusing on from problem fixing to possibility creating?
Episode #115 Melanie White
Melanie shares that we need to stop doing school and focus on deep learning. We need to create knowledge and focus on students' assets. It is a continuous process of shifting and dancing to access learning in the best possible way.
Episode #114 Hedreich Nichols
Hedreich Nichols shares the importance of teaching human kindness citizenship explicitly through the development of interpersonal relationships, examining feelings, and building empathy.
Social actions already walk in with the students. We need to create a culture of kindness that models explicitly what kindness is and makes someone feel bad without attacking their character or behaviour. In the classroom, students are more empathetic than adults. We all have our own biases and perspectives. Allow students to take the lead, let their brilliance shine.

Making a difference in the lives of the students by maximizing their potential. By creating a culture in which students can take risks to take ownership of their learning. Creating clearer targets on why they are learning. Students should not be punished when they learn incorrectly. Educators should be transparent in their assessment practices. Students should understand self-assessment & feedback, as well as how grades are assigned at the end of the process. Students should explain their why and reflect on the process.
Growing a growth mindset across a culture of understanding rather than competing to learn. The book, The Magic of Growth Mindset will be released soon. It is important for teachers to model growth mindsets as well, and for leaders to be aware of how they respond, it is more about the effort than how well they do. Get everyone to take some risks. A safe space for making mistakes, lots of modelling by leaders to teachers, and for the students to take it home.
