October 16, 2020 “Introduction and thinking about were we are”
Some readings, art, music, and other resources. These are not required readings. They have been shared with us by our guests, or are things we have looked up after an interview for further information or just because we were curious.
We share these materials with you for interest and pleasure’s sake.
If you missed this week’s class you can listen to it here:
As we mentioned and learned from David Ward, we are not the first, nor are we the only ones learning through radio. Here is an article about a school over the radio in 1937: http://www.openculture.com/2020/10/the-1937-experiment-in-distance-learning.html
Lisa mentioned Frank Oliver while she was talking with Nykkie Lugosi-Schimpf. Here is a link for an article about removing his name from the Oliver neighbourhood in Edmonton: https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/edmonton/dan-knott-school-oliver-school-to-get-new-names-public-trustees-decide-in-unanimous-vote-1.5716774
