Quotes: 

Sophie Deen, Detective Dot (@detectivedot)

‘I’m a commitment phone so I hate describing myself as any one thing’

'I was talking to people this week about how amazing it would be if Eastenders got a coder or an engineer.’

‘I think we all need to have training on our unconscious bias’ because we all have them.’

'I don’t get on well with traditional education systems. but all kids and all people love stories.’

Dr Jess Wade, Imperial College (@jesswade)

'Get people working on something that isn’t just blowing people up or playing a computer game.'

'Film industry and gaming. they are really struggling to recruit the right graduates. But you have the lovely investment banks looking to recruit you from day one'

‘All art galleries have an integrated and in depth chemistry centre.’

 

‘I did an art foundation before starting my physics degree. Being able to think in this creative visual way has definitely helped.’

Jennifer Gratton, Make:Do (@make_do_space)

 

‘As a D&T teacher I’d have kids turn around to me and say why are we writing this is not an english lesson.’

 

 

 

 

Charter schools are really taking a stance to make their education more relevant to the communities that they are in

'What can schools do to start making this a reality? Give their teachers more authority. Give them time.'

The Exchange brings together like-minded EdTech entrepreneurs, encouraging them to exchange ideas, swap war stories, and give and receive advice from their peers. It is solely for Founders of EdTech companies who have raised at least £100,000 of financing or revenue, with many members having raised significantly more.  http://edtech.exchange/ 

 

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/
