What's in this episode?

This week's episode is all about how economies and industry are transitioning into a new world of work. We throwback to a recording from last year with Jane Oates from WorkingNation where we talk about everything from massive investment in training employees, how working cultures are not interchangeable, and why supporting each other through change is important. These are all subjects that have been thrust into the foreground by Coronavirus in a way that has made us sit up and listen more urgently than any discussion on automation has before.

Plus, an update from our listeners on how teaching, learning and remote work have developed a few months on from operating in a world with Coronavirus.

Our podcast collaboration with Bett, What Matters in Edtech, is back, this time with a focus on global education. This podcast series is all about the things that matter in education, and how and when tech might help. 

What's in this episode?

In our first episode, we focus on Asia and the current challenges and insights from this region. Asia was the first region to see the impact of COVID-19 on the education system and school closures.

We speak to a range of educators and partners in the region to talk about their approach to teaching and learning both before and during the Coronavirus crisis.

What tools and pedagogies are they utilising to best serve their students in the here and now, and also prepare local youth for the connected digital world in the long-term? And just how has Coronavirus expedited or frustrated these strategies in the region.

You’ll also hear about robust technology developed to take on one of the harshest environments out there – space - and how this is being adapted to fulfil large data research projects in this current time.

Welcome to this first episode of our newest series, What Matters in Edtech, supported by Bett. This series is all about the things that matter in education, and how and when tech might help. 

What's in this episode?

In the first episode, we are looking at Inclusion and Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND). 

We look at those working across teaching, learning and research supporting those with special educational needs and disabilities. We look at how their efforts are making way for better identification of learning needs, better innovation in assistive technology, and more inclusion in the classroom, at a time when grade pressure is charged with marginalising SEND learners.

Thank you to Bett for supporting this series.

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!

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!

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!

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.

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.

Hello everyone!

This week’s episode is a LIVE recording at WISE Paris earlier this year, where we cover T-shaped learners (broad and deep), what Greek mythology can tell us about the modern day role of the mentor, and how formative culture and parents are in the learning journey. Naturally, we throw in a bit of machine learning, investment and pedagogy for a fine recipe for your ears. 

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.

We kick off this week's episode with our friends at Cool Initiatives to find out more about the CI Education Challenge 2019, why they’re going even more early-stage and details on their 6 finalists.

We continue with our conversations recorded at GESF earlier this year. First up is the highly-driven Dr Yuhyun Park from the DQ Institute, an international think-tank based in Singapore, Korea and the US. Their vision is #DQforAll – empowering every individual with digital quotient (comprehensive competencies to thrive in this digital age) beyond the more talked about IQ and EQ. But what about getting women and girls excited about digital literacy and, more broadly, the sciences? We hear from Global Teacher Prize nominee Emma Russo, a science teacher from the UK whose ambition in teaching has focused on creating and promoting opportunities for girls in physics and engineering.

What's in this episode?

Hi everyone and welcome to The Edtech Podcast. Our mission is to improve the dialogue between “ed” and “tech” and this week’s no different as we delve into some listener feedback on the edtech strategy published last week by the department for education in the UK. We’ve got to know some of the edtech strategies and approaches by different Governments around the world so it is interesting to reflect on developments closer to home, namely, 

  • Around reducing teacher workload
  • Boosting training for teachers with bitesize CPD
  • Improving access for children with SEND
  • Tackling plagiarism by technology with technology

Here at The Edtech Podcast we were encouraged to see that these are some of the subjects that we’ve covered in episodes across the past three years, but what is the wider education and edtech sector thinking about these developments? We asked and you delivered! Here’s a selection of your thoughts in this our special episode, with thanks to everyone who contributed. We also include a cut-away to a listener’s experience of a recent 10 Downing St. hosted workshop on how government can better support the development of edtech businesses. Full references in our show-notes. Enjoy!

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

What's in this episode?

This final episode of The Pearson series on future tech for education reflects on edtech internationally. What does a review of 130 reports on edtech internationally tell us about best practice and evidence based learning in emergencies and displaced settings? What are the common misconceptions about connectivity as a barrier to edtech, and when are these well-founded? How can technology help scale access to teaching and learning and how do we ensure learners still benefit from mentors and face to face teaching. And when it comes down to it, what comes first on a phone - a learning game or a photo of your loved ones? All this and more in today’s 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.

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

What's in this episode?

With technology, teachers actually sometimes see less student work than they do with a traditional worksheet. How can resources developers best communicate about students' work to teachers? What instructional decisions do teachers make for which it is helpful to have data to answer? Are data points useful beyond intervention alone? What do teachers actually seek from data and how it is presented, without adding to existing workload? What latest design methods of communicating information can be used to feedback student performance to teachers whilst maintaining the agency of all stakeholders? Is the data-dashboard here to stay? Or, is there another way?

My Story

I’ve just released details of my fundraiser for Homerton Hospital. I’ll be cycling 720km from coast to coast across France using the so-called Pyrenean Raid route in May. That means multiple Tour de France climbs with no stomach muscles to my name. 

If that sounds like a challenge you'd like to support you can text NELL47 then the amount - say £10 or £1000 pounds (!) - to 70070. It’s all for an amazing cause and to support Homerton Hospital’s maternity team and neurological, paediatric and child health research. More here

This week we are throwing back to a WomenEd event in November where we discussed the importance of female digital leadership both within the education and edtech sector alike. You'll hear about 

WomenEd_Tech - the spin off handle from grassroots movement WomenEd focusing on digital leadership
EdtechWomenUK - the UK and London chapter of the international Edtech Women movement out of SXSWedu and Austin
Nevertheless - the podcast series focused on resurfacing stories in amazing female leadership in education innovation and technology in the past and present day

You'll also hear a live discussion looking at:

a) Why digital leadership is important for female leaders (all leaders!) within schools
b) Why we think more female involvement in edtech funding, design and development is important for edtech being developed for schools

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?

What's in this episode?

A quick update from me with some sad news...then

This week we’ve got a throw back to a meet up in October of this year where we looked at demystifying investment in edtech. This episode is one for the start ups listening in, though educators may find it interesting to hear about where money is being spent and how start ups are going about building their innovations around the world. 

First up you will hear a quick word from Richard Male at the UFI Charitable Fund for Vocational Technology on what funding is out there for post-16 edtech, next a quick word from Jo Sayers at ELTJam with word on investment from publishers SAGE and then into a brilliant speech from Ben Drury, Co-Founder and CEO at Yoto, on "What have I learnt about fundraising and investment in the past 10 years” replete with anecdotes and advice on when to act like a politician and ps. KNOW YOUR NUMBERS!

After that, Jan Matern, CEO and Co-Founder, Emerge Education on who’s investing and how investing in edtech is going down and where the gaps are. Then onto the final bit - a Panel on Demystifying the investment/funding practice for Edtech Start-ups with Jan, plus
Vanessa Gstettenbauer, Senior Investment Manager, Founders Factory Ltd, Jessica Stacey, Partner, Bethnal Green Ventures and Daisy Hill, Former, Head, CrowdFest, AD, ZZISH

During this podcast we ask the following questions

• What funding is out there?

• Who is funding what in edtech?

• How to get started?

• How can we make the investment process less intimidating?

and

• What options are there for raising money?

Welcome to this episode of The Edtech Podcast, where we are in takeover mode with Lego Education. 

What's in this episode?

In a paper by N V Scarfe in 1962 entitled “Play is Education” Einstein is quoted as saying “The Desire to arrive finally at logically connected concepts is the emotional basis of a vague play with basic ideas. This combinatory or associative play seems to be the essential feature in productive thought.” In this episode we explore what play-based learning means to one of the world’s biggest brands in play, an award-winning primary school pedagogical leader and a human-centred design thinker. How can we balance play with structured learning and how can we instil that essential love of learning through play, something so inherent to us humans…? This week we are in takeover mode with Lego Education.

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

What's in this episode?

Melvin Kranzberg, a past Professor of the History of Technology at Georgia Tech, famously said:

“Technology is neither good nor bad; nor is it neutral.”

In this episode we look at how to maintain responsible and calm digital citizenship at a time of screaming headlines, whilst also looking at the necessary ethical and philosophical questions which come with advanced technology. We also review what the future of work might look like, following research conducted by Pearson and Nesta on the future of skills and employment in 2030.

Managing our reaction, interaction, and, ultimately creation with technology. Remember that these are tools. Churchill said ~we shape our buildings, thereafter, they shape us; McLuhan paraphrased him ~we shape our tools, thereafter, they shape us. Now technology is a part of almost every aspect of our lives: buildings can be 3d printed, cars can drive themselves, and algorithms can direct our education. It is essential that we understand how these function and what the implications are of silos and biases. We also look into a changing world of work and how we can best prepare.

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

What's in this episode?

With global leaders tweeting about artificial intelligence or AI as the next arms race, and forecasts predicting the near-term decimation of existing jobs markets due to artificial intelligence and automation, episode 2 is a great time to explore the question: What is AI and what has it got to do with me and my students?

What AI is and is not. The difference between narrow AI, general AI and super-intelligence. What type of AI is used now in education, and which AI do people fear, which may never exist? How do students and teachers already use AI to their advantage? Thinking about AI in the context of past educational tools, including the pocket calculator and printed encyclopedia. What questions might teachers want to use when thinking about AI in education?

This week we’re in the last of our three HigherEd focused episodes recorded at Ovum’s Future Edtech event. I’m in conversation with Nicole Engelbert, Director of Research & Analysis, at Ovum Technology. Nicole used to work as a Director of Admissions, so is well placed to understand the HigherEd perspective, as well as the latest industry research on innovation within the HE sector.  We talk about what’s up and what’s down and the pace of change in HE.

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

What's in this episode?

This week we set up the series by asking which future technologies for education should we consider as important, and how should we sensibly approach the impact of future technological change without being at once too cautious or too evangelist as educators?

Setting the stage for the series, we put "future-forecasting" in perspective through a few useful but simple models. We talk about the history of the future, and mindful skepticism. We also delve into the four foci of edtech technologies, mixed reality, data science (AI), biosynching, and human-machine relations, and how these affect education, teaching and learning.

This week, we throwback to June in the UK speaking to Olivier Crouzet, the Director of Pedagogy at Ecole 42. For anyone who doesn’t know Ecole 42, 42 is a private, nonprofit and tuition-free computer programming school created and funded by French billionaire Xavier Niel (Founder of the telecommunication company Illiad) and other partners. The school was first opened in Paris in 2013. Riffing directly from Wikipedia,

"The school does not have any professors, does not issue any diploma or degree, and is open 24/7. The training is inspired by new modern ways to teach which include peer-to-peer pedagogy and project-based learning.

This week I’m delighted to share a conversation I recorded with Edsurge CEO and Co-Founder Betsy Corcoran back in May this year. 

In this episode we talk about how Betsy left her secure role at Forbes (at the height of the economic recession). Betsy then embarked on some educational volunteering, dust-bunny collection and finally set up Edsurge in a bid to better understand why the future technologies of learning were not making it into the everyday schools of California.

We also talk yoga, egos and high-stakes student academic and entrepreneurial expectation in the Silicon Valley, as well as what Hamilton the musical has got to do with Personalised Learning.

The fifth edition of the ASU GSV Summit Series on The Edtech Podcast. Listen here.

Welcome everyone to this fifth episode from the ASU GSV Summit series on The Edtech Podcast. This week we’re getting into the many-headed beast of educational reform.

Educational reform can mean many things to many people, but essentially focuses on changing public education for the better. For example at the time of recording the interviews for this episode the incoming 11th Educational Secretary in the US, Betsy Devos, was advocating for more choice in school options (an approach rejected by critics for only favouring those who are able to exercise such choice due to economic and social mobility and freedom.)

During her ASU GSV Summit keynote, Devos stated: 

“Our education-delivery method should be as diverse as the kids they serve, instead of our habit of forcing them into a one-size-fits-all model” 
 “Traditional, charter, private, virtual, and other delivery methods not yet developed—would all be treated as viable options as long as they meet the needs of students.”

To a choice audience of educational technology proponents, Devos gave a confident endorsement of edtech - something we are yet to see explicitly from the UK Government - stating:

“I’m pretty confident that we have not yet realized the full range of technology’s power and ability to help students learn’.

She also vowed to cut bureaucracy to unleash these benefits, in other words to:

...'Move the federal government out of the way so you can do your job'

In this episode, we spend time looking at the various efforts of educational reform across the US and how these compare internationally, including focus on literacy, adult education and higher education. How is educational reform co-ordinated across multiple states in the US, how can the tide of adult illiteracy be turned and how can the financial structures of Higher Ed be challenged to increase access? All this and more in our interviews with this week’s guests. You’ll hear from:

#82 - On Efficacy and Impact in Edtech

The third part of the ASU GSV Summit Series on The Edtech Podcast. Listen here.

Welcome everyone to this third episode from the ASU GSV Summit series on The Edtech Podcast. This week we hear about efficacy and impact touching upon evidence-based education, why you shouldn't attempt to be a researcher, and why accreditation isn't the answer in the complicated world of education! 

Don't forget to check out the reference links below, for more follow up videos, podcasts and reading on this topic. 

What's in this episode?

Sample quotes: 

Rather than saying let’s do it like this because Vgotsky said so in the 1920s, let’s look at what is the alternative 
Very very infrequently is the efficacy and impact judged in advance of major policy decisions
We want to make it more likely that the edtech products that reach our classrooms will have the best impact, not just the best marketing claims

#81 - How can Edtech Drive School Improvement?

A panel discussion run by the British Educational Suppliers Association during London Edtech Week 2016, recorded for The Edtech PodcastListen here.

What's in this episode?

Hello and welcome everyone. From apps that are aspiring to be the Uber of supply teaching, to cutting-edge platforms and assessment tools allowing school data to be analysed in innovative new ways, many EdTech companies are aiming to enhance teaching and learning experiences across the UK and in doing so, transform the way that schools operate – saving them both time and money. As well as playing a unprecedented role in helping to raise standards of attainment; and improving the quality of what is taught and how it is taught.

This week's episode looks at all of these things and the UK's standing in edtech, alongside an increasing attraction to international expansion opportunities. I hope you enjoy! (Plus, don't forget to check out the reference links below, for more guest suggestions and reading on this topic.) 

Included:

Sample quotes: 

We need to drive efficiencies within our schools so we can save money and spend that money on having more teachers in classrooms with our kids, as thats what schools are all about 

Edtech as a term means more to policy makers, incubators than to schools  

There’s a famous saying for those teachers here, y’know, consistency leads to outstanding outcomes

Sample quotes: 

I grew up with Star Trek and the vision of technology as a very benevolent force

#altc generates 1.5m twitter impressions each year, so it’s worth sharing

One of the favourite aspects of my job is I get to work with many awesome people

We’ve long been campaigning for the Government to mandate that all publicly funded research is openly accessible

I’m a real geek at heart and I love new technologies, but we also need to keep in mind how can we build a responsible relationship between technology and its users?

I don’t think we are isolated from the hard times the sector is experiencing, but we are very small and lean

On policy makers: It would be great to have more official endorsement and support of using learning technologies

Is a blog post, if it’s on a well visited blog, is it as valid evidence for a research article?

'We know the limits of what data can tell us.’ - on TEF

They have a really strong and lively learning technology community in Ireland

  • Intro: trends from London Edtech Week
  • LIVE podcast:

    This week’s recording is our LIVE podcast on Is Edtech a Thing? exploring the value of edtech from a financial, educational and opportunity cost point of view. Thrashing out the various nuances in the debate, you’ll hear from

    Lucy Heady - Impact Director, Investments Team - Nesta
    Matt Johnson - Senior Associate - Cooley LLP
    Richard Taylor - Angel Edtech Investor
    Bukky Yusuf - Secondary Science Teacher, Consultant and Qualified Coach

    A big shout out to all the people who came along in the UK heatwave, to Nesta for hosting and to Cooley LLP for covering the drinks until booting out time.

Sample quotes: 

'One thing we know from research is that it’s really really hard to improve learning for children. Affect sizes are tiny across the board.’ - Lucy Heady 

'There’s a lot of interest and concern if a company is free. How are they making money?'  - Matt Johnson 

'The reality is something comes in, something has to go out.’ - Richard Taylor

'Something which could cut the marking back’ - Bukky Yusuf on what she’d like to see from edtech

Check out the Class Central Mooc Report and More...

Next up, a word from ClassCentral which if you’re into geeking out over online learning and MOOC reports like I am you’ll probably already know about! 

It's been more than half a decade since free online courses from Stanford kicked off the modern-MOOC or massive online open courses movement. Since then more than 700 universities around the world have launched MOOCS, used by over 60 million people. Gaining insight into this fast paced world is worth spending time on (especially for those implicated by such changes). That’s where Class Central comes in. 
 
Class Central launched at the end of 2011, and has kept track of the MOOC space right from the beginning. Not only does it list 7000+ courses, making it the #1 search engine for online courses, but the excellent MOOC report blog has deep analysis on what’s up, down, new or just slightly leftfield. With over 500+ articles written, Class Central has the most comprehensive coverage of the MOOC Industry.
 
I came across Class Central when I was preparing for a Department for International Trade webinar I was speaking on and found it invaluable. Since then, I met founder Dhawal Shah out at SXSWedu and he was excited to share the resource with all
of you. So definitely go and check it out at www.class-central.com/report/ and let me know what you think!

Qatar Foundation International (QFI), LLC, is a U.S.-based member of Qatar Foundation (QF). QFI operates as both a grant-making organization, and a convener of thought leaders on issues related to global and international education, open education and education technologies as they intersect with the three core QFI programmatic areas: Arabic language and Arab culture, STE{A}M (STEM plus the Arts), and Youth Engagement.

QFI inspires meaningful connections to the Arab world by creating a global community of diverse learners and educators and connecting them through effective and collaborative learning environments —inside and outside the classroom.

Through our activities, QFI is committed to providing K-12 students in Qatar, the Americas, and the United Kingdom (UK) with the intellectual, communicative, and cultural competencies that will enable them to be engaged global citizens. 

About I Speak Arabic:

The #ISpeakArabic campaign, which launched in November 2015,  is an awareness campaign by Qatar Foundation International (QFI), a not-for-profit that works to build meaningful connections with the Arabic language and Arab world. I Speak Arabic aims to illuminate the Arabic language and Arab culture through storytelling. In addition to documentary shorts, which highlight inspiring individuals from around the world who found success from speaking Arabic as a second language, the ispeakarabic.com platform provides access to open resources, tools, and kits that expand on the teaching and learning of the Arabic language to non-native speakers.

Next up, a word from ClassCentral which if you’re into geeking out over online learning and MOOC reports like I am you’ll probably already know about! 

It's been more than half a decade since free online courses from Stanford kicked off the modern-MOOC or massive online open courses movement. Since then more than 700 universities around the world have launched MOOCS, used by over 60 million people. Gaining insight into this fast paced world is worth spending time on (especially for those implicated by such changes). That’s where Class Central comes in. 
 
Class Central launched at the end of 2011, and has kept track of the MOOC space right from the beginning. Not only does it list 7000+ courses, making it the #1 search engine for online courses, but the excellent MOOC report blog has deep analysis on what’s up, down, new or just slightly leftfield. With over 500+ articles written, Class Central has the most comprehensive coverage of the MOOC Industry.
 
I came across Class Central when I was preparing for a Department for International Trade webinar I was speaking on and found it invaluable. Since then, I met founder Dhawal Shah out at SXSWedu and he was excited to share the resource with all
of you. So definitely go and check it out at www.class-central.com/report/ and let me know what you think!

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/

Next up, a word from ClassCentral which if you’re into geeking out over online learning and MOOC reports like I am you’ll probably already know about! 

It's been more than half a decade since free online courses from Stanford kicked off the modern-MOOC or massive online open courses movement. Since then more than 700 universities around the world have launched MOOCS, used by over 60 million people. Gaining insight into this fast paced world is worth spending time on (especially for those implicated by such changes). That’s where Class Central comes in. 
 
Class Central launched at the end of 2011, and has kept track of the MOOC space right from the beginning. Not only does it list 7000+ courses, making it the #1 search engine for online courses, but the excellent MOOC report blog has deep analysis on what’s up, down, new or just slightly leftfield. With over 500+ articles written, Class Central has the most comprehensive coverage of the MOOC Industry.

What's in this episode?

  • Intro 0 - 8.30, weekly shout outs via We are at ASU GSV and Katapult Tech this week ASU GSV and Katapult Tech and Japan Prize (The Japan Prize Edu Resources - it's free and you might get flown to Tokyo! (more details below)) this week 
  • Interview with Ted Fujimoto, President, Landmark Consulting Group, Co-Chair of Right To Succeed talking about: 

    • How do you scale innovation?

    • What’s wrong with most schools?

    • Why is charter school vs. district school the wrong argument?

    • What’s the chronology for success?

    • Why is music so exciting for learning?

Sample quotations:

We’re obsessed about the biology of engagement 

 

I launched Landmark in my freshman year in college and by the time I graduated i employed almost 30 employees. 

It’s about looking for holes.

The highest performing schools put relationships first.

There is so much edtech... I would say a lot of it is very poorly designed.

It’s like a community of one star motels trying to be a five star hotel without having ever been to one

I’ve probably visited about 3000 charter schools.’

We have invested, Through my clients, over a $1bn dollars in innovative school spaces and real estate

People are so obsessed with coding. Coding, i’m afraid, is going to be the keyboarding classes that we had.

This is an easy one for me as I regularly use Glisser at events because I frankly find it a bit WEIRD when there are people staring at you but you ignore them! Glisser is an audience engagement platform, and they also have an education offer for socialising lectures where they take regular PowerPoint or Keynote presentations and push each slide out live to student’s mobile devices as they are presented. Professors, administrators and students get valuable data on where information is really engaging, or needs reworking and staff and students can interact through the deck. You can check them out at https://www.glisser.com/student-engagement/

EdTechXEurope is the leading thought leader summit bringing together executive level investors, innovators and industry influencers from European and international education companies. Now in its fourth year, EdTechXEurope hosted 800+ global attendees and invited over 150 speakers to showcase EdTech innovations and perspectives from around the world. http://edtechxeurope.com/ 

 

The EdTech Exchange is Europe's largest community of EdTech Founders and provides members with mentoring, support and a programme of events designed to share best practice through peer-to-peer learning. 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/ 

 

May 7, 2017

What's in this episode?

  • We’re talking about: Where is money currently being invested into edtech? What are the various accelerators/incubators focusing on and why? How does edtech differ from Vietnam to Israel to Japan to the USA?

  • Introduction and recording with the Japan Prize 1-9.00. Enter The Japan Prize Edu Resources - it's free and you might get flown to Tokyo! (more details below). 

  • Interviews with Matt Candler, Founder + CEO, 4.0 Schools
    Chian Gong, Investor, Reach Capital
    Phil Kim, Co-Founder, Michelson Runway EdTech Accelerator | President, The Michelson 20MM Foundation
    Mayra Lombera, Director, Strategic Initiatives, The Michelson 20MM Foundation
    Avi Warshavsky, CEO at MindCET
    Tomoko Haneda, Afrel Co. , Ltd. on behalf of Edtech Japan
    T.T. Nguyen Duc, VC, Pearson Affordable Learning Fund

 

Sample quotations:

How do you measure an idea when it’s in that early phase? 

A lot of that capital exists in fairly old school publishers which are very much incentivised to continue in the existing system. 

I believe in the power of students as teachers.

We’re really thinking about getting students from cradle to college

There were definitely moments where school wasn’t that great for me.

As an alternative to student debt, we could invest in the future of students through an equity vehicle.

We are putting together an investors table or fund, investing in start ups in Israel and the UK 

The You Tubers are the new teachers. They are like rockstars.

Enter The Japan Prize 2017!...

Submit your best work to inspire the future of learning. The JAPAN PRIZE is hosted by Japan’s public broadcaster, NHK. The Contest is the world’s only international competition that focuses solely on educational media. These may include games, apps, websites, and films.During the final selection in Tokyo in October, there are contents screenings and exhibition, a creators’ workshop, and a professional conference. All these events aim to explore how innovation in media can impact the future of education. For more information and entry forms please visit our website: www.nhk.or.jp/jp-prize/ The deadline for entries is June 30th 2017. You can also check them out on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/JapanPrize.NHK/ 

Next up, a word from ClassCentral which if you’re into geeking out over online learning and MOOC reports like I am you’ll probably already know about! 

It's been more than half a decade since free online courses from Stanford kicked off the modern-MOOC or massive online open courses movement. Since then more than 700 universities around the world have launched MOOCS, used by over 60 million people. Gaining insight into this fast paced world is worth spending time on (especially for those implicated by such changes). That’s where Class Central comes in. 
 
Class Central launched at the end of 2011, and has kept track of the MOOC space right from the beginning. Not only does it list 7000+ courses, making it the #1 search engine for online courses, but the excellent MOOC report blog has deep analysis on what’s up, down, new or just slightly leftfield. With over 500+ articles written, Class Central has the most comprehensive coverage of the MOOC Industry.
 
I came across Class Central when I was preparing for a Department for International Trade webinar I was speaking on and found it invaluable. Since then, I met founder Dhawal Shah out at SXSWedu and he was excited to share the resource with all
of you. So definitely go and check it out at www.class-central.com/report/ and let me know what you think! 

This is an easy one for me as I regularly use Glisser at events because I frankly find it a bit WEIRD when there are people staring at you but you ignore them! Glisser is an audience engagement platform, and they also have an education offer for socialising lectures where they take regular PowerPoint or Keynote presentations and push each slide out live to student’s mobile devices as they are presented. Professors, administrators and students get valuable data on where information is really engaging, or needs reworking and staff and students can interact through the deck. You can check them out at https://www.glisser.com/student-engagement/

Simon Nelson, CEO, FutureLearn

Message from Class Central 

Message from Glisser Edu

Sample quotations:

 

There’s been a real acceleration in the last few years BUT I wouldn’t say I know of a single institution that I think is moving fast enough

What you’re seeing is the modularisation of the whole process of gaining a degree qualification 

What are students learning from one another in a dining hall, doing community service, doing an internship, from their room mates? 

i think in the edtech world moocs is a dirty word. It’s only in the edtech world, in the consumer world moocs are still a nice world when you go to normal people  

96% of all university presidents believe that they had the right skilled people graduating from their colleges, but only 11% of students believe the same..

The EdTech Exchange is Europe's largest community of EdTech Founders and provides members with mentoring, support and a programme of events designed to share best practice through peer-to-peer learning. 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/

Sample quotations:

 

'We are traditional publishers in that we publish traditional books, but…we’ve been innovating for ten 15 years. We’ve invested significant amounts of money, our money, not investor money.’ 

'I would like to explore whether edtech in and of itself needs to be innovative in terms of what it does and in terms of the needs its serving, for its own sake.'

'It’s not about textbooks anymore its about helping students to reach their potential'

Experience would say that it’s still worth putting things in the post to teachers.

Next up, a word from ClassCentral which if you’re into geeking out over online learning and MOOC reports like I am you’ll probably already know about! 

It's been more than half a decade since free online courses from Stanford kicked off the modern-MOOC or massive online open courses movement. Since then more than 700 universities around the world have launched MOOCS, used by over 60 million people. Gaining insight into this fast paced world is worth spending time on (especially for those implicated by such changes). That’s where Class Central comes in. 
 
Class Central launched at the end of 2011, and has kept track of the MOOC space right from the beginning. Not only does it list 7000+ courses, making it the #1 search engine for online courses, but the excellent MOOC report blog has deep analysis on what’s up, down, new or just slightly leftfield. With over 500+ articles written, Class Central has the most comprehensive coverage of the MOOC Industry.
 
I came across Class Central when I was preparing for a Department for International Trade webinar I was speaking on and found it invaluable. Since then, I met founder Dhawal Shah out at SXSWedu and he was excited to share the resource with all
of you. So definitely go and check it out at www.class-central.com/report/ and let me know what you think! 

This is an easy one for me as I regularly use Glisser at events because I frankly find it a bit WEIRD when there are people staring at you but you ignore them! Glisser is an audience engagement platform, and they also have an education offer for socialising lectures where they take regular PowerPoint or Keynote presentations and push each slide out live to student’s mobile devices as they are presented. Professors, administrators and students get valuable data on where information is really engaging, or needs reworking and staff and students can interact through the deck. You can check them out at https://www.glisser.com/student-engagement/
