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.

This week we share recordings made live at the launch of the European Edtech Network during London Edtech Week.  For those who have been following the news, the ambitions of the network are interesting in the wake of Alt Schools pivot after raising nearly $200 million; many level the perceived failure or change of direction at Alt School to the lack of educators at the helm, relying only on the silicon valley faith in everything tech.

We also throw in a few listener messages and some news from the world of edtech events. 

Enjoy and have a great week!

What's in this episode?

Welcome to episode five of the Education 4.0 series co-curated with our friends at Jisc, looking at the changing world of education in the fourth industrial era.

This week’s episode is all about the personal curriculum. We explore what the personal curriculum might mean in reality, a reality where we can both forge our own path aided by technology but without feeling isolated.

We are horizon gazing with Natalie 4.0, bringing things back to the present day with Ada the Chatbot at Bolton College, and thinking about where pastoral care and the role of the mentor fits into personalised learning chatting to Connect2Teach and GP Dominique Thompson.

What's in this episode?

Hello everyone!

This week’s episode is a LIVE recording at WISE Paris earlier this year, where we cover T-shaped learners (broad and deep), what Greek mythology can tell us about the modern day role of the mentor, and how formative culture and parents are in the learning journey. Naturally, we throw in a bit of machine learning, investment and pedagogy for a fine recipe for your ears. 

Stay in touch and have a great week!

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.
