Welcome to this seventh episode of the The Future Tech for Education Series on The Edtech Podcast, supported by Pearson

What's in this episode?

What is personalized learning? What is it not? Is there an evidence base yet for personalised learning and what does the research evidence show us about the contexts where personalized learning works best? What is the role of student, software and teacher in a personalised learning context? What questions should we be asking?

Welcome to this sixth episode of the The Future Tech for Education Series on The Edtech Podcast, supported by Pearson

What's in this episode?

How do we get beyond the tick-box or bubble filling exercise of exams and tests, whilst also measuring 'progress'? We delve into ideas around 'invisible assessment' and question who benefits from ‘traditional’ and re-imagined forms of assessment, including games-based assessment. Can ‘tests’ be fun and should they be? How do we measure collaboration?

Welcome to this fifth episode of the Pearson Future Tech for Education Series on The Edtech Podcast

What's in this episode?

We dip into the world of VR and mixed reality to uncover what high-cost, high-risk learning opportunities are being made more accessible to all by this technology. How are academics measuring the learning outcomes of VR and simulation and what are the quantifiable cost savings and impacts for various learning and training environments? When is VR right for education, and when is it superfluous? We also end our first five episodes with practical suggestions for educators: mindful skepticism, resist fear, understand that you can start small and grow, and avoid technology for technology's sake. This last one is harder than it sounds - many new technologies wow us but do not have useful application to education.

Welcome to this fourth episode of the Pearson Future Tech for Education Series on The Edtech Podcast

What's in this episode?

This week we are looking at language learning and tech. Current estimates suggest that there are over 1 billion people learning English worldwide. Recent predictions also suggest that those learning English as a Second or Foreign Language will double by the year 2020 to nearly 2 billion people. But how we learn languages is changing. Apps, MOOCs, Chatbots and online tutoring services have all worked to reduce the time and investment needed to pick up and master a language. Whilst voice recognition services like Amazon Alexa or Google Home have made practicing languages even easier right in your home. At the more extreme end some advanced technologies have even brought into question whether learning a language in the traditional sense will be needed in the future. And, should it be humans or machines testing second language acquisition?
