What's in this episode?

We look at the future of work experiment that is 2020 in this investor special, and interrogate some of the forecasts for the future of work now that many of them have come true. 

Our guests this week are both investors coming at the conversation from two very different angles. One funds and supports ambitious ideas for using technology to improve the lives of low wage workers or 'workertech', whilst the other is General Partner at an early-stage fund investing in workplace technology companies that have a strategy to sell to and through employers. Enjoy the episode. It's a great listen!

Welcome to the latest episode of the GLOBAL edition of our What Matters in Edtech Series, our podcast collaboration with Bett. This podcast series is all about the things that matter in education, and how and when tech might help. 

Thank you to Bett for supporting this series and to Pearson for supporting this episode.

What's in this episode?

 

In this episode looking at skills, we are in conversation with an amazing 19-year-old key worker on her experience of 2020, an SVP on understanding more about how vocational learning pathways are adapting to a fast-shifting employment landscape, and a Principal and CEO on the education sector moving forward on cultivating essential skills.

We will be asking:

  • Which skills are in demand?
  • How are people reskilling?
  • How did key workers in the pandemic train for this moment and how can adaptability and resilience be developed from an early age? And,
  • what changes in assessment and qualifications and support will we see in reaction to our new societal needs?

 

Plus, there are some great book recommendations and the usual anecdotes, allegories and insights.

Follow the conversation, share and comment using #edtechpod and #Bett2021.

Welcome to the latest episode of the GLOBAL edition of our What Matters in Edtech Series, our podcast collaboration with Bett. This podcast series is all about the things that matter in education, and how and when tech might help. 

A big shout out to Bett for supporting this series, to Aruba for supporting this episode.

What's in this episode?

Innovation can sometimes feel esoteric. Yet, without it where would we be? Endlessly plodding perhaps… 

In this episode, we are talking innovation with guests from Dubai, Brazil, Singapore and the U.K.

Expect ideas on how to build the team around you to take new ideas forward, how to create the space for innovation, and ways to measure impact, including, “how much time have I saved?”
