A quick audio message to say thank you as we reach our fifth birthday as The Edtech Podcast! 

Plus, news on our summer break, new series planning for our return in the Autumn 2021, and, how you can get involved! 

Apr 23, 2021

This episode is the last of Season Two of our podcast series 'The Edge: Accelerating Higher Education', supported by Salesforce.org. The Edge takes a fresh look at higher education and digital transformation and this episode is all about recruitment and admissions. 

What's in this episode?

In this episode, Sophie Bailey is in conversation with Dr. Gerd Kortemeyer, Director of Educational Development and Technology at ETH Zurich - one of the world’s most prestigious science and technology universities - talking about the concept of Social Linked Data otherwise known as SOLID. In the context of Higher Education, we talk about students taking ownership of their data and having a learner identity that permeates their whole learning lives. We also cover other systems questions Higher Education leaders need to consider when thinking about evolving their University offering. 

Continue the conversation online at @podcastedtech and @SalesforceOrg with #EdtechEdge and #edtechpod.

Welcome to the latest episode of the What Matters in Edtech Series, our podcast collaboration with Bett. This podcast series is all about the things that matter in education, and how and when tech might help. 

This episode was brought to you in association with TES, Bett's global Well-being partner. Thank you to Bett for supporting this series and also to FormAssembly for supporting this episode.

What's in this episode?

This episode is all about learner wellbeing, and we are covering how to define and measure wellbeing in the context of developing and using impactful edtech to support learner wellbeing and, therefore, learner success.

This is all especially relevant given the impact of the pandemic, with over half of UK students surveyed by the National Union of Students saying their mental health has deteriorated or been affected negatively by COVID-19, with only 20% of students having sought mental health support.

We explore the ambiguities in edtech - what’s stressing students out and what’s creating those systems of support - as well as looking into how educational settings can weave more social-emotional learning metrics into the usual approach of academic success. 

Follow the conversation, share and comment using #edtechpod and #Bett2021.
