#53: Why Don’t We Wonder in Schools Anymore? with Bud Hunt

Will and Lyn talk with educator and library administrator Bud Hunt who asks us to consider when we stopped making schools a place of wonder? We discuss the connections between literacy and making (“making is a fundamental thing that people do”); a library’s purpose as a community space where people can engage in civil discourse; “drone literacy” (it’s a thing!); what we actually mean by “modern literacy” and how we can support teachers and learners in becoming most literate; and the algorithms influencing and often censoring our digital interactions with one another (Noble’s Algorithms of Oppression is referenced).

Thanks for tuning in!
