Our podcast collaboration with Bett, What Matters in Edtech, is back, this time with a focus on global education. This podcast series is all about the things that matter in education, and how and when tech might help. 

What's in this episode?

In our first episode, we focus on Asia and the current challenges and insights from this region. Asia was the first region to see the impact of COVID-19 on the education system and school closures.

We speak to a range of educators and partners in the region to talk about their approach to teaching and learning both before and during the Coronavirus crisis.

What tools and pedagogies are they utilising to best serve their students in the here and now, and also prepare local youth for the connected digital world in the long-term? And just how has Coronavirus expedited or frustrated these strategies in the region.

You’ll also hear about robust technology developed to take on one of the harshest environments out there – space - and how this is being adapted to fulfil large data research projects in this current time.
