Ep 12: Interview with Steve Glaveski

October 7, 2017

Episode 12 of Design and Play is a fantastic interview with Steve Glaveski, a long time friend of Design and Play. Steve is the CEO and Co-Founder of Collective Campus, an innovation hub, school and consultancy based in Melbourne and Singapore, an Amazon best-selling author, host of the hugely popular Future Squared podcast, keynote speaker and creator of the student entrepreneurship program, Lemonade stand.

Steve shares his podcast journey, including his growth hacks to make Future Squared an iTunes chart-topper. We take a deep dive into the power of Virtual assistants to reduce admin workload. Steve provides insight into how he keeps up his own learning. Whether it's listening to audiobooks on 2x, listening to a diverse range of podcasts, teaching to develop understanding, Steve's habits of mind are just world class.

We discuss the value of going analog to help with managing distractions, as well as the power of extreme ownership when it comes to leadership.

Authentic learning and learning by doing are throughlines for this whole episode and it is worth its weight in gold just for the show notes. If you are interested in learning how to learn, this episode is for you.

  • Tom shares his experience of writing a Masters of Education (Innovation and Change) course from scratch for Torrens University.

 

  • How language and habits can enculture innovation, including the exploration of where our language around innovation comes from.

 

  • How we need to redefine our relationship with failure

 

  • Tom shares his experience working as the education consultant to two architectural studios in Sydney. This continues our ongoing discussion into the impact of learning spaces on learning in schools.

Ep 10: ILEs, VCE and the Flow state

June 19, 2017

We hit double digits with episode 10 and Dean provides an in-depth reflection on the recent Transitions conference at Melbourne Uni. Transitions was a public research conference exploring research behind the move from traditional classrooms to what are being called innovative learning environments (ILEs) This day included a catch up with our good old friend Terry Byers (@tezzabyers). An interesting insight from the conference led to Dean and I taking an intense look at VCE and questioning the validity of the current system (These opinions are obviously ours and not our employers!). I also talk about my experience completing the Flow Fundamentals course and the great work from the Flow Genome Project. We hope you enjoy the show!

In episode 9, we interview the fantastic Summer Howarth, the Director of Learning Design at EduChangemakers. Summer is one of the most passionate and hard-working educators out there and this chat could have gone on for days. We discuss the origins of TeachMeet in Australia and discover why libraries, cheese and 7-minute stories go together. Summer shares insight into why teaching was a calling for her and how her story evolved through school. We also unpack the vast portfolio of work that Summer and the EduChangemakers team do, exploring everything from design thinking to lean startup to how to impact change in schools. Summer also unveils some new feature events for EduChange (you'll have to listen to hear these exclusives!). We hope you enjoy the show.

Ep 5: Makerspaces and conferences

April 17, 2017

Episode 5 of Design and Play is all about makerspaces and conferences. For schools looking to create a making culture at their school, Dean shares insights into his school's journey. There is some great advice for schools just starting and for schools a little way down the path. We also spend time unpacking conferences as a whole. Looking at them from a multitude of angles; attendee, presenter, organiser, we talk about the fit of conferences in the modern professional learning portfolio. The TeachTehcPlay conference provides most of the inspiration for our conversation.
