What's in this episode?

Hello dear listeners, welcome to this new episode of The Edtech Podcast, the show that aims to improve the dialogue between 'ed' and 'tech' for better innovation and impact.

Hot on the heels of our launch of The Voctech Podcast: learning continued series a few nights ago, I’m super happy to share the second episode. This week I speak to Steve Wheeler, a Learning Innovations Consultant and former Associate Professor of Learning Technologies at the Plymouth Institute of Education. We chat about the importance of human capital, empowering employees through knowledge, unlearning and relearning and more! Enjoy!

Big thanks to Ufi Charitable trust and Ufi Ventures who made this new series possible. Go and check out their fine work in developing innovative vocational technology to support workplace skills development.

What's in this episode?

Hello everyone! 

In this week’s episode, we travel nearly 5000 miles from the UK to China, to talk about increasing interest in competency based education. Plus, a listener news item on a new partnership on UK Maths Edtech. 
 
First up, you’ll hear Edtech Podcast listener Sonnie Tan interviewing the Founder of KitCat, Michael Huang. In this interview with Sonnie, Michael talks about how he think the Gaokao exam will slowly develop to recognise student’s more creative needs, as well as knowledge of cutting edge technologies, and how to apply them, such as AI. 
 
Our second interview is with Yiwei Zhang, Director of International EdTech Projects at Rayee. Rayee is a knowledge provider on education within China, with a focus on well-rounded education rather than the exam-orientated K-12 after school tutoring market that you may have heard a lot about. In this recording you’ll hear from Yiwei about how shopping malls are providing space for students to broaden their learning, whilst their parents enjoy some recreation. What do you think about this set up?  
 

Stay in touch and have a great week!

Lots of transferable lessons for anyone utilising or deploying digital skills!

What's in this episode?

Hello everyone! 

Thank you for being patient as we took a break over the Summer and prepared for our next season. 
 
This week we throwback to a second recording from this year’s WISE Summit in Paris. In this episode you’ll hear from two speakers on the topic of the future of learning; 
 
Heidi Harju-Luukkainen, Professor, Nord University 
Angel Investor, Khaled Helioui 
 
We look at the impact of genetic disposition and geographic lotteries on learning, on the double edged sword of international rankings and the problem with coercion as the basis of learning. We explore how to measure impact without creating norms and exclusivity. 

Stay in touch and have a great week!

What's in this episode?

Hello everyone!

 In this episode, we’re travelling back to (the) Future Edtech conference where a panel of Higher Education leaders discuss how to develop the team that delivers change in the context of institutional capability and leadership development for the "21st Century University". You will hear about how saying no to change is embracing the status quo, academic and professional services collaboration as central towards bringing about change, and why downloading board papers digitally shouldn’t be beyond the University SLT. We also think about value and the tussle between liberal education and University as a bridge to work. 

Stay in touch and have a great week!

What's in this episode?

Hello listeners and welcome back to The Edtech Podcast, the show about improving the dialogue between “ed” and “tech” for better innovation and impact.

This week we share recordings made live at the launch of the European Edtech Network during London Edtech Week.  For those who have been following the news, the ambitions of the network are interesting in the wake of Alt Schools pivot after raising nearly $200 million; many level the perceived failure or change of direction at Alt School to the lack of educators at the helm, relying only on the silicon valley faith in everything tech.

We also throw in a few listener messages and some news from the world of edtech events. 

Enjoy and have a great week!

What's in this episode?

Welcome to episode five of the Education 4.0 series co-curated with our friends at Jisc, looking at the changing world of education in the fourth industrial era.

This week’s episode is all about the personal curriculum. We explore what the personal curriculum might mean in reality, a reality where we can both forge our own path aided by technology but without feeling isolated.

We are horizon gazing with Natalie 4.0, bringing things back to the present day with Ada the Chatbot at Bolton College, and thinking about where pastoral care and the role of the mentor fits into personalised learning chatting to Connect2Teach and GP Dominique Thompson.
