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.
