This episode was recorded at The London Festival of Learning and SXSWEDU

What's in this episode?

This week’s podcast features a smorgasbord of guests. First up, a Chinese AI company in conversation with a US army learning scientist and standards bods on technology in education. We explore what the profession of learning engineering could bring to new software innovation which truly understands pedagogy. IEEE Icicle are seeking help on building up standards in this area and on AI in education and you can find out how to be involved. 

Continuing the big theme of the London Festival of Learning interdisciplinary learning and knowledge sharing, next we skip over the pond to a past recording from SXSWedu where I talk to Raechel French, an associate from the DLR Architecture Group talking about the use of space design for learning and what she picked up from a year spent researching this in Australia. 

And finally, I’m chatting to Preben Hanson from Danish company Kubo Robot and Stephan Turnipseed, executive vice president and chief strategy officer for Pitsco Education. We talk about screen-less technologies and the teaching of computing at ever earlier years.

What's in this 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.

Hi everyone and welcome to The Edtech Podcast in TAKEOVER this week with boclips.

This week we are talking about video in education, teaching and learning .

There’s no doubt about the power of video to engage us and communicate new ideas. TED content receives 3.2billion views a year and TED’s youth and education initiative TEDEd grew 47% year-over-year in 2017 – 2018. (Oh and by the way, you can check out our interview with Alex Rosenthal, Editorial Producer of TEDed from last year in episode 70). Over on Youtube, the EDU aspect of YouTube is going great guns hosting original content and making education and edtech stars from the likes of Colin Hegarty, Dianna Cowern and Salman Khan to name but a few. In fact, Khan Academy has more than 62 million registered users.

In this episode we look at how video is supporting learning in and out of the classroom, and some of the barriers to getting high-quality, engaging video within educational settings. Expect Youtuber tips on amazing learning content across everything from Science to Philosophy and ELT.

This episode celebrates the addition of the Youtube EDU Basho & Friends and Crash Course channels and TEDed to boclips, as part of a wider Youtube initiative. You can register to the boclips library as an educator or content provider here: http://boclips.com/registration-form

Thanks to all my guests this week, Basho Mosko, Hank Green, Bethany Beaudrie and David Bainbridge!

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

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

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?

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

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/

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: death of a campervan, events, and news about ASU GSV Summit series kicking off on the 6th August
  • Interview with one of edtech's greatest mind attics, Maren Deepwell, the CEO of the Association for Learning Technology or more commonly known as ALT. We talk Sherlock Holmes, Equality, Government Policy and Open Education.

  • Events: If you’re London based join us at some summer edtech drinks on the 22nd August. Venue is TBC so if you have one, why not let us know!
  • The ALT conference is on the 5-7th September in Liverpool this year AND finally
  • The Innovate Edtech conference takes place in London on the 11th November, looking at the Rise of Learner Experience. 

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

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!

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/

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.

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.

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.

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!

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 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.

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.

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 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/

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/

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.’

'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.

  • Thank you to this week's sponsors Glisser Edu and ClassCentral
  • VOTE for The Edtech Podcast in the British Podcasting Awards! 
  • RECORD a special message for The Edtech Podcast listeners episode by simply clicking here.

What's in this episode?

  • Introduction 0-4.15

  • 4.15 - 21.45 Interview with Raul Gutierrez, Founder and CEO, TinyBop on engaging apps 

  • 21.45 - 26.20 Interview with Alice Lacey, CEO & Co-Founder at now press play on engaging audio 

  • 26.20 - 34.55 Interview with Ed Barton, CEO, Curiscope on engaging AR and VR

  • 34.55 - 42.30 Interview with Mark Overland, Head of Education, Primo Toys on engaging creativity and coding 
  • 42.30 -55.45 Interview with Srinivas Mandyam, CTO, Tynker on engaging creativity and coding 

  • Outro 55:45 - 57.30 - with offer from ELTJam using code ‘edtechpod.’ Nice one. 

 

Sample quotations:

I’ve worked always at the intersection of entertainment and art 

I was never a good enough coder to call myself a coder. I was never a good enough designer to call myself a designer, but I was good enough at both to recognise who was really great.

The very first thing that I wrote before I wrote the company name is designing for quiet. How do we encapsulate the best parts of an analogue childhood in a digital realm?

What do you think about Betsy Devos? I think she’s a disaster! 

I think assessment is driving education in the wrong direction. 

We wanted to contextualise learning about the body by literally going beyond the skin. 

All off us are geek dads, I guess 

Who doesn’t like flying drones right?

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/

Thank you to this week's Sponsor

 

A message from our friends at Wambiz

When it comes to communicating with their students and getting them to collaborate outside of the classroom, teachers are stuck between a rock and a hard place. Today’s tech savvy students simply do not engage with email, the traditional means of teacher-student communication, whilst social media, Facebook, WhatsApp and the like are also not the appropriate medium as they blur the lines between personal life and professional life, providing no visibility to the institution of any potential inappropriate behaviour. At WAMBIZ we solve this problem by allowing institutions from all sectors to have their very own branded private social network, letting your teachers and students communicate and collaborate in a safe and secure environment, which you control. With a familiar look and feel to other social media platforms, guaranteeing adoption and engagement, but with the safeguards needed for educational practice, the app facilitates key benefits including learning outcomes, teaching and assessment, student support, social inclusion, social media awareness and much more…

To book a free demo or find out more please visit wambiz.com or contact us at info@wambiz.com and implement your own institutional app today!

And if you are a school listening please contact us to find out about our ‘Safebook 4 Schools’ project backed by the West Midlands Police!”

Sample quotations: 

  • 'I was the principal who didn’t believe in any of this. I wrote the policies that blocked social media.’

  • 'Social media, especially twitter, opened my eyes to a world I never new existed.’

  • Kids saw more value in their learning; we didn’t see technology as an add on anymore

  • It was hard working with the staff who’d been there for thirty or forty years.’ 

  • In education we focus on the yeah but’s when we need to focus on the what if’s

  • Leadership is about action, not about title, position or power

A message from our friends at Full Fabric to all the higher education listeners out there. If you work in university admissions and you’re considering ways to streamline your marketing and on boarding processes check them out! Full Fabric is developed by a team who worked within a university and were frustrated by the experience of supporting students effectively. They realised any software solution needed to be customisable to help universities recruit, market to and admit students in one place. All data is hosted on the cloud, meaning it can be accessed anytime, anywhere and on a range of devices.

If that sounds of interest to you, you can request a free consultation about your university’s admissions process by visiting learn.fullfabric.com/podcast 

Sample quotations: 

Yoshimi Ishizaka, ICT Connect 21

  • The Japanese education system is relatively centralised 
  • The after school education is so active; not only the physical classroom, but online
  • The National Standard curriculum is raised every 10 years; 2020 - the concept of the revision is active learning 
  • Starting a programming class will be so tough. We came to england to learn your experiences
  • Many edtech venture companies have recently started in Japan. The after school market is so big. The b2c market rather than b2school.
  • Another problem is the Japanese teachers are so busy. Too busy!
  • If some technology can reduce their burden…that’s very great.

Rob Bennett, Bloodhound 

  • What are we watching? We are watching kids get inspired and engaged about rocket cars! 
  • Engineers: people who use technology to solve problems as, of course, we all do on planet earth from the day we are born
  • How am I, the most complicated computer in the world going to solve problems? I need equations. 
  • I am from the land of the free and brave: Cornwall.
  • We are like the starship enterprise, going boldly where no man has ever done. We will prove the science and we will do it safely.
  • Produce 9 tonnes of thrust, just pop it down the run way.
  • We are communicating the language of maths which are universal 

Children from Islington Schools 

  • Franklin, 11 years old, Newington Green Primary School 
  • ‘I’ve seen VR headsets, different robots.’ 
  • Matthew, Newington Green Primary School
  • ‘I enjoyed the robot one.’ 
  • What gets you engaged? ‘ICT’ 
  • Nor, 
  • A digital leader is responsible for technology and ICT. They are one of the good people.’ 
  • Jackson, Alexandra Palance Secondry School 
  • ‘I like the robotics.’ 

 Dean Jacobs, Wibbu 

  • We’re a group of game developers and linguists and language teachers who have come together to modernise the way people learns languages.
  • I’ve always been in love with languages.
  • Our philosophy is about long term engagement with language learning 
  • We had a concept game out last year. We had a quarter of a million downloads and went to the number one in the apps store education category in 20 countries. 
  • I think it’s really exciting for publishers. I don’t think they’ve seen something which is so gamified. 

Melissa Philipps, BAFTA Young Games Designer of the Year 

  • There are brand new games design courses opening up all over the country 
  • I’m a big believer in the see it be it 

Kai Mulligan Oliver, Nintendo

  • I think its so much easier to be creative now. Being creative digitally is so much in the minds of young people these days
  • The tools are now democratised. you don’t need to code. 
  • In the indie scene i know lots of people haven’t done degrees

Gustaf Nordback, DigiExam

On the educator side we solve the problem of marking

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/

Circle with Disney got in touch via twitter thinking I was based in the US, but although they’re yet to come to the UK they are still saying hi to all of you lovely listeners because our second biggest audience are in the US, but wherever you are hello! So what is Circle? Well, I think everyone listening has probably cried to Bambi, or Dumbo so you know what Disney is! Circle with Disney is a little device designed for families to help manage content and time spent online across devices in the home. It pairs to Wi-Fi routers and 4G or WiFi networks of Tablets, PCs, Smart Phones, and all devices its connected with and allows parents to filter content, set time limits and bedtimes across platforms like YouTube, Minecraft, Facebook, Netflix and Snapchat. Which reminds me of when my mum tragically pulled the plug from our Amstrad PC on a hot summer’s day just before we could crush the boss man on Kung Fu Master. I didn’t thank her then, but I definitely do now. 

The best thing is the kind folks at Circle have sorted out special Free Shipping and a $10 OFF discount for you listeners if you go to meetcircle.com and enter the code EDTECH. The code will be live till the 31st March. Thank you Circle. 

Next up, our friends at Full Fabric with a message to all the higher education listeners out there. If you work in university admissions and you’re considering ways to streamline your marketing and on boarding processes check them out! Full Fabric is developed by a team who worked within a university and were frustrated by the experience of supporting students effectively. They realised any software solution needed to be customisable to help universities recruit, market to and admit students in one place. All data is hosted on the cloud, meaning it can be accessed anytime, anywhere and on a range of devices.

If that sounds of interest to you, you can request a free consultation about your university’s admissions process by visiting learn.fullfabric.com/podcast 

Sample quotations: 

Amanda Jackson, Inspector for Standards and Effectiveness for Computing and eSafety, Havering Education Services

  • Denmark - ‘The thing that they were really interested in were the micro:bits.’
  • VR: 'It can’t ever replace a good trip somewhere, but it can work really well when you have good context’

Dave Smith, Computing & Online Safety Adviser/Business Development Lead, Havering Education Services

  • A UK digital strategy for schools: 'That’s something we desperately need. We need to be driving that in our schools.’
  • Sweden: 'When I went there in 2011 for the first time, in the swedish authority all the students have a laptop of their own and all the students are allowed to install their own programmes.’ 

Soren Anderson, ICT-strategist for the school district of Sandviken, Sweden

  • 'We are a high tech country, but i fell like we missed something on the way.’
  • I think that many of us thought that if we just have everything we need (technically) it would solve every problem, but it didn't’ 

IT Advisor, UAE Ministry of Education 

  • 'We would like our country to be number one in education.’ 
  • 'Our strategy is to enhance education through Emirati schools.'

Jon Tiss, Co-Founder, Show My Homework

  • 'Naimish regular goes out to schools. I still go out to schools. The classroom changes week to week. If you take your finger off the pulse, your’e already outdated.'
  • 'That’s how we started. It was me and him. One developer. In a room with no natural light.'

What's in this episode?

This week we have we’re in conversation with everyone from Pearson, The Bookseller, Edtech Exchange, Oxford University Press, Assembly, the Audio Book Publishers Association, Kortext, recorded at ‘Edtech for publishers’ at FutureBook '16, asking questions such as:

  1. What can edtech and publishers offer one another?

  2. Can two distinct business cultures meet in the middle or not?

  3. Is there a short term cost financially to publishers who are embracing edtech?

  4. Outside of content, what are the infrastructure considerations on edtech for publishers across data, and good connectivity

  5. What challenges do the financial squeezes in education and some difficult edtech business models present?

     

A big thank you to The Bookseller, Future Book and Edtech Exchange who worked on The Edtech for Publishers event together, and if you like this episode you might be tempted to also check out episode 37 on textbooks vs. technology. 

Sample Quotes 

1) Andrew Keen author
'Wake up and understand that finally, you can learn what your
consumer wants'
'Digital and Paper: You cannot do one without the other'
2) Philip Jones editor at the Bookseller
'Lots of startups coming in, lots of opportunities, lots of disturbance in the force. Education publishers are worried that there will be some change down the line that they don't see early enough.'
 
3) George Burgess, founder of Gojimo and the EdTech Exchange
'Big publishers seek in edtech innovation, outsourcing of
risks, and opportunity to learn from it'
 
4) Tom Hall. (Former) VP Tech and Digital at Pearson
 
 
'It's still a messy industry: pricing, market revenues and getting your content ready are the main issues'

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?

  1. Announcing an official media partnership with the SXSWedu® Conference & Festival
  2. In conversation with Richard Taylor, UK-based angel-investor in c.12 edtech start ups
  3. Recorded at Bett, you’ll hear what Taylor believes are:
    1. The 3 lessons for edtech success
    2. What he thinks of accelerators, distributors and teacher pension schemes
    3. And why he thinks part of our latest obsession with coding is a red herring.

Sample Quotes (@dick_taylor)

 

 

  • Investing in early stage start ups is like a horse race. Only the horse race takes seven years and half of them you need to take out and shoot.
  • Sometimes you make money but actually the better lesson is when you lose money.
  • When I first started in education i didn't really care what it was or if it had any impact. If it made money that was all I really cared about.
  • The ones that are more likely to be successful are the ones that have a teacher in the founding team
  • 'When schools buy or use edtech there is a big cost, but also a big opportunity cost.’
  • 'Schools buy million pounds worth of stuff pretty much how the local football club buy sausage rolls for their fundraising night'

What's in this episode?

  1. Resources, funding and inspiration for teachers looking to do more cross curricular work on science and creativity
  2. Career paths for young people looking to engage in science and creativity
  3. Broadening mainstream media depictions or lack of them re: lab technicians, engineers and coders.

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.'

What's in this week's episode?

Content:

  1. BYOD vs 1 to 1 initiatives with Surface  
  2. Using technology to do the heavy lifting and save time on resources, feedback and data
  3. Using a flipped approach for staff, students, governors and parents –
  4. Plus more on Leadership, planning and serving your students

Alan Crawford, Vice Principal, Shireland Collegiate Academy

  • Reading about emotional intelligence is something I find really interesting
  • Our whole academy is built on Office 365

Sir Mark Grundy, Headteacher, Shireland Collegiate Academy, @sirmarkgrundy, quotes:

  • We’ve created a system which frees hours and hours and hours of staff time
  • At the risk of putting myself out of favour with the photocopying industry…what most schools do, is photocopy the world. It’s not an economic way of delivering learning.
  • I’m stubborn in that I won’t accept that technology should force our processes to change. We are your best and worst place to pilot anything.
  • What you can’t do is build all sorts of technology benefits on top of chaos.
  • Not enough schools are stubborn around the processes of learning and school improvement and school management.
  • I have a problem with BringYourOwnDevice. It’s just chaos, utter chaos!
  • The depth of scrutiny we now get from our trustees is at a level I’ve never seen
  • I think technology is just such a great lever for support and change and it’s a great leveller
  • I expect the leadership team to serve the staff and the kids. I don’t expect the staff to serve the leadership team.
  • Do our staff feel pressured? Yes they do. Do they feel accountable? Yes they do. Do I think they feel well supported by us? Yes, I think they do.
  • We have pushed our staff to put try and do a more evidence based analysis of what they do
  • My experience in the DFE at the moment is they are genuinely looking at how to do things differently.
  • I was hugely impressed. She spoke about a different landscape. She touched on the sort of skills our young people need. Every conversation has involved how do we harness the power of technology

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.'

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/

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.
