What's in this episode?

Hello listeners and welcome back to The Edtech Podcast, the show about improving the dialogue between “ed” and “tech” for better innovation and impact.

We kick off this week's episode with our friends at Cool Initiatives to find out more about the CI Education Challenge 2019, why they’re going even more early-stage and details on their 6 finalists.

We continue with our conversations recorded at GESF earlier this year. First up is the highly-driven Dr Yuhyun Park from the DQ Institute, an international think-tank based in Singapore, Korea and the US. Their vision is #DQforAll – empowering every individual with digital quotient (comprehensive competencies to thrive in this digital age) beyond the more talked about IQ and EQ. But what about getting women and girls excited about digital literacy and, more broadly, the sciences? We hear from Global Teacher Prize nominee Emma Russo, a science teacher from the UK whose ambition in teaching has focused on creating and promoting opportunities for girls in physics and engineering.

Hi everyone, and welcome back to The Edtech Podcast the show about improving the dialogue between “ed” and “tech” for better innovation and impact.

This week we throwback to my visit to Dubai in March. I was visiting the Global Education and Skills Forum, which hosts the global teacher prize and the next billion prize. The next billion edtech prize was launched by the The Varkey Foundation to recognise the most innovative technology destined to have a radical impact on education in low income and emerging world countries. In this episode you'll hear from;
