The Edtech Podcast supports the mission of WomenEd: #WomenEd is a grassroots movement which connects existing and aspiring leaders in education. Even though women dominate the workforce across all sectors of education there still remain gender inequalities, particularly at senior leadership level. The situation regarding BME leadership is even more dire considering the fact that the student population is becoming increasingly diverse. This situation is clearly unacceptable and rapid change is needed. #WomenEd will therefore campaign and use its collective power to make improvements, so that there is a more equitable balance in terms of gender and ethnicity at leadership level across all sectors of education. http://www.womened.org/

Enter The Japan Prize 2017!...

Submit your best work to inspire the future of learning. The JAPAN PRIZE is hosted by Japan’s public broadcaster, NHK. The Contest is the world’s only international competition that focuses solely on educational media. These may include games, apps, websites, and films.During the final selection in Tokyo in October, there are contents screenings and exhibition, a creators’ workshop, and a professional conference. All these events aim to explore how innovation in media can impact the future of education. For more information and entry forms please visit our website: www.nhk.or.jp/jp-prize/ The deadline for entries is June 30th 2017. You can also check them out on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/JapanPrize.NHK/ 

Next up, a word from ClassCentral which if you’re into geeking out over online learning and MOOC reports like I am you’ll probably already know about! 

It's been more than half a decade since free online courses from Stanford kicked off the modern-MOOC or massive online open courses movement. Since then more than 700 universities around the world have launched MOOCS, used by over 60 million people. Gaining insight into this fast paced world is worth spending time on (especially for those implicated by such changes). That’s where Class Central comes in. 
 
Class Central launched at the end of 2011, and has kept track of the MOOC space right from the beginning. Not only does it list 7000+ courses, making it the #1 search engine for online courses, but the excellent MOOC report blog has deep analysis on what’s up, down, new or just slightly leftfield. With over 500+ articles written, Class Central has the most comprehensive coverage of the MOOC Industry.
 
I came across Class Central when I was preparing for a Department for International Trade webinar I was speaking on and found it invaluable. Since then, I met founder Dhawal Shah out at SXSWedu and he was excited to share the resource with all
of you. So definitely go and check it out at www.class-central.com/report/ and let me know what you think! 

This is an easy one for me as I regularly use Glisser at events because I frankly find it a bit WEIRD when there are people staring at you but you ignore them! Glisser is an audience engagement platform, and they also have an education offer for socialising lectures where they take regular PowerPoint or Keynote presentations and push each slide out live to student’s mobile devices as they are presented. Professors, administrators and students get valuable data on where information is really engaging, or needs reworking and staff and students can interact through the deck. You can check them out at https://www.glisser.com/student-engagement/

'It’s not about textbooks anymore its about helping students to reach their potential'

Experience would say that it’s still worth putting things in the post to teachers.

  • Thank you to this week's sponsors Glisser Edu and ClassCentral
  • VOTE for The Edtech Podcast in the British Podcasting Awards! 
  • RECORD a special message for The Edtech Podcast listeners episode by simply clicking here.

What's in this episode?

  • Introduction 0-4.15

  • 4.15 - 21.45 Interview with Raul Gutierrez, Founder and CEO, TinyBop on engaging apps 

  • 21.45 - 26.20 Interview with Alice Lacey, CEO & Co-Founder at now press play on engaging audio 

  • 26.20 - 34.55 Interview with Ed Barton, CEO, Curiscope on engaging AR and VR

  • 34.55 - 42.30 Interview with Mark Overland, Head of Education, Primo Toys on engaging creativity and coding

  • Outro 55:45 - 57.30 - with offer from ELTJam using code ‘edtechpod.’ Nice one. 

 

Sample quotations:

I’ve worked always at the intersection of entertainment and art 

I was never a good enough coder to call myself a coder. I was never a good enough designer to call myself a designer, but I was good enough at both to recognise who was really great.

The very first thing that I wrote before I wrote the company name is designing for quiet. How do we encapsulate the best parts of an analogue childhood in a digital realm?

What do you think about Betsy Devos? I think she’s a disaster! 

I think assessment is driving education in the wrong direction. 

We wanted to contextualise learning about the body by literally going beyond the skin. 

All off us are geek dads, I guess 

Who doesn’t like flying drones right?

The Edtech Podcast supports the mission of WomenEd: #WomenEd is a grassroots movement which connects existing and aspiring leaders in education.

This situation is clearly unacceptable and rapid change is needed. #WomenEd will therefore campaign and use its collective power to make improvements, so that there is a more equitable balance in terms of gender and ethnicity at leadership level across all sectors of education. http://www.womened.org/

  1. VOTE for The Edtech Podcast in the British Podcasting Awards! 

What's in this episode?

  • Introduction, British Podcasting Awards and Wambiz

  • 1:1 interview with Eric Sheninger, Senior Fellow and Thought Leader on Digital Leadership with the International Center for Leadership in Education (ICLE).

  • Exploration of turnaround story & Eric's time as award-winning Principal at New Milford High School in the US

  • Recommended reads on leadership and change management

  • Frameworks for building a team and gaining investment for projects 

Thank you to this week's Sponsor

 

A message from our friends at Wambiz

When it comes to communicating with their students and getting them to collaborate outside of the classroom, teachers are stuck between a rock and a hard place. Today’s tech savvy students simply do not engage with email, the traditional means of teacher-student communication, whilst social media, Facebook, WhatsApp and the like are also not the appropriate medium as they blur the lines between personal life and professional life, providing no visibility to the institution of any potential inappropriate behaviour. At WAMBIZ we solve this problem by allowing institutions from all sectors to have their very own branded private social network, letting your teachers and students communicate and collaborate in a safe and secure environment, which you control. With a familiar look and feel to other social media platforms, guaranteeing adoption and engagement, but with the safeguards needed for educational practice, the app facilitates key benefits including learning outcomes, teaching and assessment, student support, social inclusion, social media awareness and much more…

To book a free demo or find out more please visit wambiz.com or contact us at info@wambiz.com and implement your own institutional app today!

And if you are a school listening please contact us to find out about our ‘Safebook 4 Schools’ project backed by the West Midlands Police!”

Sample quotations: 

  • 'I was the principal who didn’t believe in any of this. I wrote the policies that blocked social media.’

  • 'Social media, especially twitter, opened my eyes to a world I never new existed.’

  • Kids saw more value in their learning; we didn’t see technology as an add on anymore

  • It was hard working with the staff who’d been there for thirty or forty years.’ 

  • In education we focus on the yeah but’s when we need to focus on the what if’s

  • Leadership is about action, not about title, position or power

A message from our friends at Full Fabric to all the higher education listeners out there. If you work in university admissions and you’re considering ways to streamline your marketing and on boarding processes check them out! Full Fabric is developed by a team who worked within a university and were frustrated by the experience of supporting students effectively. They realised any software solution needed to be customisable to help universities recruit, market to and admit students in one place. All data is hosted on the cloud, meaning it can be accessed anytime, anywhere and on a range of devices.

If that sounds of interest to you, you can request a free consultation about your university’s admissions process by visiting learn.fullfabric.com/podcast 

Sample quotations: 

Yoshimi Ishizaka, ICT Connect 21

  • The Japanese education system is relatively centralised 
  • The after school education is so active; not only the physical classroom, but online
  • The National Standard curriculum is raised every 10 years; 2020 - the concept of the revision is active learning 
  • Starting a programming class will be so tough. We came to england to learn your experiences
  • Many edtech venture companies have recently started in Japan. The after school market is so big. The b2c market rather than b2school.
  • Another problem is the Japanese teachers are so busy. Too busy!
  • If some technology can reduce their burden…that’s very great.

Rob Bennett, Bloodhound 

  • What are we watching? We are watching kids get inspired and engaged about rocket cars! 
  • Engineers: people who use technology to solve problems as, of course, we all do on planet earth from the day we are born
  • How am I, the most complicated computer in the world going to solve problems? I need equations. 
  • I am from the land of the free and brave: Cornwall.
  • We are like the starship enterprise, going boldly where no man has ever done. We will prove the science and we will do it safely.
  • Produce 9 tonnes of thrust, just pop it down the run way.
  • We are communicating the language of maths which are universal 

Children from Islington Schools 

  • Franklin, 11 years old, Newington Green Primary School 
  • ‘I’ve seen VR headsets, different robots.’ 
  • Matthew, Newington Green Primary School
  • ‘I enjoyed the robot one.’ 
  • What gets you engaged? ‘ICT’ 
  • Nor, 
  • A digital leader is responsible for technology and ICT. They are one of the good people.’ 
  • Jackson, Alexandra Palance Secondry School 
  • ‘I like the robotics.’ 

 Dean Jacobs, Wibbu 

  • We’re a group of game developers and linguists and language teachers who have come together to modernise the way people learns languages.
  • I’ve always been in love with languages.
  • Our philosophy is about long term engagement with language learning 
  • We had a concept game out last year. We had a quarter of a million downloads and went to the number one in the apps store education category in 20 countries. 
  • I think it’s really exciting for publishers. I don’t think they’ve seen something which is so gamified. 

Melissa Philipps, BAFTA Young Games Designer of the Year 

  • There are brand new games design courses opening up all over the country 
  • I’m a big believer in the see it be it 

Kai Mulligan Oliver, Nintendo

  • I think its so much easier to be creative now. Being creative digitally is so much in the minds of young people these days
  • The tools are now democratised. you don’t need to code. 
  • In the indie scene i know lots of people haven’t done degrees

Gustaf Nordback, DigiExam

On the educator side we solve the problem of marking

Circle with Disney got in touch via twitter thinking I was based in the US, but although they’re yet to come to the UK they are still saying hi to all of you lovely listeners because our second biggest audience are in the US, but wherever you are hello! So what is Circle? Well, I think everyone listening has probably cried to Bambi, or Dumbo so you know what Disney is! Circle with Disney is a little device designed for families to help manage content and time spent online across devices in the home. It pairs to Wi-Fi routers and 4G or WiFi networks of Tablets, PCs, Smart Phones, and all devices its connected with and allows parents to filter content, set time limits and bedtimes across platforms like YouTube, Minecraft, Facebook, Netflix and Snapchat. Which reminds me of when my mum tragically pulled the plug from our Amstrad PC on a hot summer’s day just before we could crush the boss man on Kung Fu Master. I didn’t thank her then, but I definitely do now. 

The best thing is the kind folks at Circle have sorted out special Free Shipping and a $10 OFF discount for you listeners if you go to meetcircle.com and enter the code EDTECH. The code will be live till the 31st March. Thank you Circle. 

Next up, our friends at Full Fabric with a message to all the higher education listeners out there. If you work in university admissions and you’re considering ways to streamline your marketing and on boarding processes check them out! Full Fabric is developed by a team who worked within a university and were frustrated by the experience of supporting students effectively. They realised any software solution needed to be customisable to help universities recruit, market to and admit students in one place. All data is hosted on the cloud, meaning it can be accessed anytime, anywhere and on a range of devices.

If that sounds of interest to you, you can request a free consultation about your university’s admissions process by visiting learn.fullfabric.com/podcast

The Edtech Podcast supports the mission of WomenEd: #WomenEd is a grassroots movement which connects existing and aspiring leaders in education. Even though women dominate the workforce across all sectors of education there still remain gender inequalities, particularly at senior leadership level. The situation regarding BME leadership is even more dire considering the fact that the student population is becoming increasingly diverse. This situation is clearly unacceptable and rapid change is needed. #WomenEd will therefore campaign and use its collective power to make improvements, so that there is a more equitable balance in terms of gender and ethnicity at leadership level across all sectors of education. http://www.womened.org/
