This episode gives you the low-down on my whereabouts for the next few episodes.
 
I am in France riding the Raid Pyrenean in aid of the Homerton Hope charity: justgiving.com/fornell 
 
What does this mean? I'm cycling 720km in distance and 16,000m in elevation through the Pyrenean mountain range to raise £5k for Homerton Hospital Charity.

I'm about 65% to my target. If you feel that you would like to add something towards the target I'd be hugely grateful! To make things simple you can text Nell47 £20 to 70070  - you can amend the amount to whatever you wish. Or here is my justgiving page: justgiving.com/fornell 
 
 
I wish you a lifetime free of saddle sore, with open roads and blue skies a plenty. Have a wonderful week! 
 
And here is my usual out of office.

What's in this episode?

This week’s episode features three conversations from across Norway, Finland and Sweden. First up, I just wanted to give all this week’s guests a massive high five for their amazing accents. 

Listen in to hear about everything from where to hang out in Austin, what happens when you take an artificial intelligence course online aged 13, and how to get over global education being either about holistic wellbeing or being great at PISA.

This week I am in conversation with Jesús Ariel Sánchez, a K-12 teacher from the E. E. MILLER ELEMENTARY SCHOOL in North Carolina. Jesus is a listener to The Edtech Podcast and we got the chance to meet and record at this year’s SXSWedu where we talked apps, cycling and making. This episode also includes a heap of listener feedback from Uber's in India to twittersphere.

This episode was recorded at SXSWEDU. A BIG THANKS to edvinca and Class Central for sponsoring this episode. 

What's in this episode?

This week I am in conversation with edX CEO Anant Agwal. I interviewed Anant the day after he shared a stage with US Ed Secretary, Betsy De Vos, where he encouraged her to consider a range of policy options in front of a live audience at SXSWEDU in Austin. In this recording we talk about that experience, plus how MOOCS and online learning are developing, why writing is as important as coding, why choosing your favourite learner is as bad as having a favourite child, and we even invite Class Central Founder Dhawal Shah to bring his expertise to bear after his fantastic talk on The Evolution of MOOCs also at SXSW Edu. 

“If I were to re-do my life, I would spend more time on writing.” I really enjoy writing, I used to write poems and so on”  -
