Hello everyone and welcome back to The Edtech Podcast, where we aim to improve the dialogue between “ed” and “tech” for better innovation and impact.

This week’s episode is part of our series collaboration with Bett, supported by Pearson.

In this episode we are focused on Education and Esports, exploring: 
  • What is Esports and why does it matter? The scale of the Esports industry. 
  • How students are engaging with business, design, and communication through Esports
  • How colleges are bringing Esports into their curriculum with an Esports BTEC
  • Esports, diversity, student engagement and pathways to work and careers 
  • How to communicate Esports to parents, Governance boards and students 
  • How to change thinking around investment and kit requirements towards learning outcomes and practical approaches 
I'm in conversation with three incredibly passionate individuals: Tom Dore, Education Director, British Esports, Shubbs Naika-Taylor, Curriculum Manager for Digital, Coventry College
and Camilla Maurice, Curriculum Manager, MidKent College. 
 
A quick hello from Kaan who's interested in working in the EdTech industry as well.

What's in this episode?

This week we’re back with our VocTech Podcast, this time looking at assessment and skills and thinking about what is skill and how should we measure it?

This episode is part of our VocTech Podcast series produced in collaboration with Ufi VocTech Trust

I'm in conversation with:

  • Sharath Jeeven OBE, Intrinsic Labs,
  • Abby Gilbert, Institute for the Future of Work,
  • Amelia Peterson, The London Interdisciplinary School,  

  • Christopher Mallet, Bodyswaps and
  • Jessica Blakey, Head of Assessment Innovation, NCFE

We talk about:

  • What we don't want from assessment and the more nefarious applications of assessment in the workplace 
  • How we can think more broadly about skills and motivation
  • What new approaches are out there 
  • How new innovation is being funded and supported 

You'll also hear about event and grant funding updates.
