P3 #52 Leanne Hanson

By Noa Daniel

Passionate educators connect weekly to address questions, explore perspectives and learn from each other.

It’s hard to upload this now that she’s gone, but it’s one of my favourite memories of her. Leanne was a poet, educator and podcaster. She had a unique sense of wit. In 2015 Leanne was an Australian finalist in the National Training Awards Language Literacy & Numeracy category, and she is a national ambassador for vocational education. Presently, Leanne is also the Educator Community Lead for innovative Australian company called Become Education, with goal of “transforming the way that young people are prepared for life after school in this rapidly changing world.”  Leanne is also a Launch Team Member for FutureWe, and she is a co-presenter of the Edunauts on VoicEd Canada, a podcast which unpacks the FutureWe Framework of literacies that young people need in order to thrive in the future.
