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..

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/

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/

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?

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/
