Welcome to this first episode of our newest series, What Matters in Edtech, supported by Bett. This series is all about the things that matter in education, and how and when tech might help. 

What's in this episode?

In the first episode, we are looking at Inclusion and Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND). 

We look at those working across teaching, learning and research supporting those with special educational needs and disabilities. We look at how their efforts are making way for better identification of learning needs, better innovation in assistive technology, and more inclusion in the classroom, at a time when grade pressure is charged with marginalising SEND learners.

Thank you to Bett for supporting this series.

What's in this episode?

Hello everyone! 

In this week’s episode, we travel nearly 5000 miles from the UK to China, to talk about increasing interest in competency based education. Plus, a listener news item on a new partnership on UK Maths Edtech. 
 
First up, you’ll hear Edtech Podcast listener Sonnie Tan interviewing the Founder of KitCat, Michael Huang. In this interview with Sonnie, Michael talks about how he think the Gaokao exam will slowly develop to recognise student’s more creative needs, as well as knowledge of cutting edge technologies, and how to apply them, such as AI. 
 
Our second interview is with Yiwei Zhang, Director of International EdTech Projects at Rayee. Rayee is a knowledge provider on education within China, with a focus on well-rounded education rather than the exam-orientated K-12 after school tutoring market that you may have heard a lot about. In this recording you’ll hear from Yiwei about how shopping malls are providing space for students to broaden their learning, whilst their parents enjoy some recreation. What do you think about this set up?  
 

Stay in touch and have a great week!
