Outcomes of tour of ten countries and 2 years work looking at education innovation
Why education is local, not global
Why storytelling is so essential; getting the buy-in of parents and students
The power of gamified education
Why EdTech is not just about the consumption of content, but the creation of content
Why education innovation needs the language of teachers and of business

The opportunity of EdTech for special educational needs
Creating a clear brand around French EdTech - implications for start-ups
Addressing the silos of education

How Svenia and Audrey met at business school and realised they learnt more through ‘doing’ than attending ‘learning classes’. How they applied this to education innovation more broadly.
Most memorable part of the tour spent : South Africa with Green Shoots Education

Quotes: 


On next steps in Audrey’s career: ‘I don’t think working for the ministry (of education) would be the solution.’
On liking/disliking school ‘I think I loved it.’ ‘I really want to go back into teaching at some point.’
On collaboration: ‘You need people who speak both languages - the one of the teachers and the one of the business people.’
