What's in this episode?

Hi everyone and welcome to The Edtech Podcast in TAKEOVER this week with boclips.

This week we are talking about video in education, teaching and learning .

There’s no doubt about the power of video to engage us and communicate new ideas. TED content receives 3.2billion views a year and TED’s youth and education initiative TEDEd grew 47% year-over-year in 2017 – 2018. (Oh and by the way, you can check out our interview with Alex Rosenthal, Editorial Producer of TEDed from last year in episode 70). Over on Youtube, the EDU aspect of YouTube is going great guns hosting original content and making education and edtech stars from the likes of Colin Hegarty, Dianna Cowern and Salman Khan to name but a few. In fact, Khan Academy has more than 62 million registered users.

In this episode we look at how video is supporting learning in and out of the classroom, and some of the barriers to getting high-quality, engaging video within educational settings. Expect Youtuber tips on amazing learning content across everything from Science to Philosophy and ELT.

This episode celebrates the addition of the Youtube EDU Basho & Friends and Crash Course channels and TEDed to boclips, as part of a wider Youtube initiative. You can register to the boclips library as an educator or content provider here: http://boclips.com/registration-form

Thanks to all my guests this week, Basho Mosko, Hank Green, Bethany Beaudrie and David Bainbridge!

This episode was recorded at Bett 2018. A BIG THANKS to Bibliotech and Class Central for sponsoring this episode. 

What's in this episode?

This week we are in conversation with Ian Dunn, Deputy Vice Chancellor at The University of Coventry. This was one of my favourite recordings made at Bett this year. Not only will you hear from one of the most progressive and arguably well-resourced Universities about being equally online and offline, you’ll also hear how they are focusing on student services and needs, sometimes with the use of technologies.

Welcome to this ninth episode of the The Future Tech for Education Series on The Edtech Podcast, supported by Pearson

What's in this episode?

With technology, teachers actually sometimes see less student work than they do with a traditional worksheet. How can resources developers best communicate about students' work to teachers? What instructional decisions do teachers make for which it is helpful to have data to answer? Are data points useful beyond intervention alone? What do teachers actually seek from data and how it is presented, without adding to existing workload? What latest design methods of communicating information can be used to feedback student performance to teachers whilst maintaining the agency of all stakeholders? Is the data-dashboard here to stay? Or, is there another way?

My Story

I’ve just released details of my fundraiser for Homerton Hospital. I’ll be cycling 720km from coast to coast across France using the so-called Pyrenean Raid route in May. That means multiple Tour de France climbs with no stomach muscles to my name. 

If that sounds like a challenge you'd like to support you can text NELL47 then the amount - say £10 or £1000 pounds (!) - to 70070. It’s all for an amazing cause and to support Homerton Hospital’s maternity team and neurological, paediatric and child health research. More here

Listen to these recordings taken at the atmospheric Institute of Imagination in Lambeth, London during Bett week 2018.

You’ll hear from MakerClub, Tufts University, Imperial College London’s Innovation Room, GeekMum and Happy Hours Pre-School. Plus hear from Lego Education on their recent maker launch and how you can tap into their resources or enter their teacher prize.
