#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

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/
