What does Brexit mean for Edtech? 

If you are an Edtech service provider: ultimately until article 50 is invoked the UK trading position with Europe remains the same as does our trading position with the rest of the world so whether you are in the UK or in the rest of the world, don’t expect a huge amount to change in the short-term - apart from general wide spread confusion and a fluctuating currency backdrop.

If you use Edtech services: students will continue to learn and educators will experience the same age-old challenges. There may be increased pressure on service value/available budgets, with potentially more students looking to focus attention on learning which ends in employment.  

In this mini-podcast, however, I offer a few impromptu thoughts and questions for those implicated. 

1. London’s place in the Edtech Scene 

2. Exacerbated Skills Gap 

3. Edtech increased import to connect diverse young people to opportunity & enhance tolerance - or - are we all city-bound elitists?? 

It will be essential that the focus now is on how to rebuild in the most positive way possible and The Edtech Podcast welcomes all international listeners to tweet on this subject to @podcastedtech.
