What's in this episode?

Content:

This week, we’ve got a fascinating chat with Hannah Wilson - a powerhouse in the UK education scene. Hannah has just kicked off her new role as Headteacher Designate of Aureus School, part of the GLF multi academy trust network of over 21 schools in the south of England. Aureus is a brand new school in Oxfordshire which starts in September this year, with a focus on STEAM and collaboration with the community. Hannah also takes on the role of regional director for the Oxfordshire hub and is actively recruiting for the school at the time of publishing this episode. Many of you will also know Hannah as the co-founder of WomenEd, a grass roots network aimed to empower women in the UK education scene which has now launched internationally and most recently in the US. You will also want to check out BAMEEd which launched this week with the aim at increasing diversity. Finally, Hannah’s previous role was as the Professional Learning Consultant Leader at Harris Federation Teaching School Alliance where she was responsible for the CPD needs of thousands of educators.

In this podcast episode, we talk about

  1. Gender equality in education leadership
  2. Launching an edtech community space at the Aureus school
  3. Raising awareness of DFE support and resources
  4. Where Hannah gets her confidence from
  5. Suggested reads and additional leadership networks for educators

 Sample Quotes: 

Apps:
‘It’s a bit wood for the trees.’
How much contact do you actually have with the schools on what they need?

'I think the focus on coding and computing is great. I want to make sure it is integrated and meaningful. I think having life briefs with industry is very useful. to bring value to the community.

‘I’m a massive advocate in technology, but on the flip side the most powerful presentations are the one where you speak from the heart’

Retention:

‘We are not looking at other professions on how to retain and develop staff.’

'The highest percentage of people leaving the education system, are women between the ages of 30 and 39. We’ve got all these qualified women, teachers, who aren’t in the system. Why can’t we create flexible roles to get them back into the profession?'

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/

What's in this episode?

10% of the population are estimated to be dyslexic. That means that for every ten of your colleagues, or ten of your students, or ten of your relatives or friends, on average, 1 has dyslexia. In the work place, the law stipulates that you must make ‘reasonable adjustments’ to accommodate the needs of dyslexics. That might mean managing overloading environments such as open plan offices, adjusting intranets or screens so that they are less stimulating, allowing for longer time periods for organisation or kicking off a dyslexia mentoring scheme within your place of work. But what is being done before work, in schools, colleges, and Universities to move the national dialogue to one which celebrates neuro-diversity at the earliest moment and supports Dyslexic learners?

This episode features the full interview with Mike Tholfsen, Microsoft Education in conversation about: 

  • Microsoft’s Learning Tools, OneNote and Class Notebook features for Dyslexic learners and the story behind how this came to fruition 
  • An efficacy pilot study between the BDA, Microsoft and Knowl Hill School in the UK on improving dyslexic learner outcomes
  • Playing the banjo, the Seattle music scene and coming to Bett

Don't forget to check out the solo interview with Dr Saunders  on The Edtech Podcast feed for extra insights. 

Quotes: 

 

'In the US, on average you will see four levels of reading in one class.’  

'Learning tools hit the right note, we saw the right responses. It's not just about accessibility, but also about empowering everyone.'

What's in this episode?

Content:

This week’s podcast is with Dominic Norrish, the Group Technology Director of United Learning Multi Academy Trust of 60 Schools in the UK. We hear from Dominic on 

  • the importance of driving value for money in procurement
  • the importance of scepticism when it comes to edtech
  • the importance of change management when it comes to implementing new projects
  • the top 3 problems in existing education
  • and Dom’s message to edtech startups

Is this a tale of Bah Humbug or a message of hope?

Plus hear developments on the horizon from the department of business, energy and industrial strategy in collaboration with department for education in the UK.  

Sample Quotes: 

It’s very important to be highly sceptical about educational technology’s ability to do anything really

Can this help do something we are already doing slightly better?

Jon Coles (Group CEO) - He took a risk appointing me

School business managers are very very influential stakeholders in every school

Education technology: to do it well requires extraordinary teaching

Even Prensky would say that whole phrase has been hijacked (on digital natives)

I don’t know why people would enter the Edtech market if they weren’t ready for an uphill struggle

What I would say is: make sure your product does solve a genuine educational problem

Please, no more websites on simple maths problems

For everything that supports English, there are ten things that support Maths

The Uk Edtech scene is definitely focused on export and quite rightly

Content:

This week we’ve got the second of a two part series on Websummit. In this episode you can listen to Lizzie Edwards of the Digital Learning Programme at the British Museum on engagement, Kaoru Wang of Teach II on the paradox of Asia vs. West educational approaches and aspirations, and finally Kamesh Flynn of the Western Cape Government of South Africa on making the impact at early years. If this is the first podcast you’re listening to in the web summit series, make sure you go back and check out the others with interviews from UNHCR on education for those with refugee status, plus how can chatbots help education and edtech startups from Russia, Nepal and Greece

Sample Quotes: 

Lizzie Edwards, Manager Samsung Digital Learning Programme at the British Museum

It's about micro-disruptions: how can families use the technologies that they already have, that they are using to navigate the world around them, to explore the collections as well.

Kameshvari Flynn. Deputy Director in the early childhood development directorate for the department of social development, Western Cape

Karin Wong, Founder of Teach II:

Teachers in Asia are really respected which is not the case in the US. We lost the definition of what a teacher is.

Intro (0 - 5:30):
Hello from Detective Dot (www.detectivedot.org  Code: PODCASTSROCK)
Bett Awards: http://bettawards.com/finalists/  
Ian Fordham moves to Microsoft

PISA outcomes: http://www.oecd.org/pisa/ 

Content:
In this first episode of a two part series on edtech trends at Websummit, I speak to MIT Professor Brian Subirana, Director of the AutoID Laboratory and Nikos Tzagkarakis of iYouth Lab and Tania Roquette of Full Fabric on the value of technology in higher education and how to avoid edtech being a chase to the bottom
I speak to Head of Innovation at UNHCR, Andrew Harper on what the tech community and the edtech community can do for the 65 million currently displaced and Benjamin Merritt of It’s Alive on the role of chatbot technology in educational support services, and we get to know one of the many new Phygital services where digital and physical overlap in the form of Magikbee and Hugo Filipe Ribeiro.
Word from Full Fabric (learn.fullfabric.com/podcast)

Sample Quotations:

Brian Subirana (5:30 - 21:00): 

  • Most edtech technology is useless today, simply course cutting technology that lowers value and costs; education needs to be drastically reinvented or it will become a tourist attraction very much like the Grand Canyon or La Sagrada Familia.

Nikos Tzagkarakis of iYouth Lab (21:00 - 35:00):

  • ‘We want to build an ecosystem of innovation whilst studying.’
    ‘One student has the software and one student has the hardware. They connect their data through iYouthLab to facilitate their vision and research project.’

Tania Roquette of Full Fabric (35:00 - 40:00):

 

  • How can we use gamification in the application process? 
    Most universities rely on really legacy technology which makes the experience for the candidates really frustrating

Andrew Harper, UNHCR (40:00 - 52:00):

  • We’ve got to start looking at a modular learning experience. Technology is critical, because there is no other way to get learning experiences to the 10s of thousands of people.
  • I’m in desperate need of good ideas. We can’t be bureaucratic about it, we need to be engaged with legitimate sustainable ideas that can be easily scaled up.
  • Education is key
  • Imagine the potential of 65 million people that have the opportunity to learn  

Benjamin Merritt of It’s Alive (52:00)
Students have a lot of questions; sometimes they don't want to ask their teachers.

We believe a chatbot has a main purpose; to supply to specific questions. We are all human. We can't reply to all questions. 

Magikbee and Hugo Filipe Ribeiro (59:00)
Kids are losing touch with physical toys.

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/

What's in this episode?

Intro:
Nordic Edtech Conference: http://nordicedtech.squarespace.com/
Content:
Interview with:
Maarit Rossi, Global Teacher Prize Nominee & Founder, Paths to Maths
Covering:
The new Finnish curriculum and what you need to know about it 
Showcasing why maths is relevant and how maths can solve real world problems 
Challenging the lack of VC investment in female-led businesses 

Sample Quotations:

The new curriculum puts much more attention to the student being the centre of learning.
Finland: we are a research-based education.
It's my mission. I want to change Math education, not just in Finland, but in the whole world.
Interdisciplinary Math is very important.
8 students out of 10 are solving mathematics based on memorising. This really shows what is happening in math classes all over the world. We have to change it.
Learning in the classroom is not only working with the computers or tablets, it’s working together.
The first learning games have been made for consumers and now I am talking about schools
It's very important what kind of principal you have in your school and what kind of system you have in your country.
About 50 years ago Finland was one of the poorest countries in the world and now we are one of the richest countries. We don't have oil, but we have the education.
We have to give the environment of learning to students.
We need a big(ger) investor to bring the project to the next level.
