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 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.
