Happy International Women's Day!! 

What better way to celebrate than to release this first episode from our new series with the Female Edtech Fellowship, a collaboration between the European Edtech Alliance and Supercharger Ventures to support the growth of the most promising female founders in Europe.

Coming up on the series, we’ve got episodes on school digital strategies, corporate learning, and creative problem solving.

In this episode, I'm joined by guests to talk about all things audio and learning. We look back at the varied history of audio and learning, plus new applications of audio for learning. We talk about the growth of spoken word, its ability to "represent and overcome" barriers to access, and both high and low tech innovations from Whatsapp to Voice-Activated technology. Plus, public and private playlists, searchability and the role of Big Tech, and the role of audio to share best practice and familiarity between learners within varied learning environments. Also in this episode, new cool things for schools, students and startups to get involved in and a book review from Michael Shaw who has been reading "Teaching Machines". Thanks for listening!
