#150 – The Future of Learning
What’s in this episode?
Hello everyone and welcome to The Edtech Podcast! This week’s episode is a LIVE recording at WISE Paris earlier this year, where we cover T-shaped learners (broad and deep), what Greek mythology can tell us about the modern day role of the mentor, and how formative culture and parents are in the learning journey. Naturally, we throw in a bit of machine learning, investment and pedagogy for a fine recipe for your ears. You’ll hear from a Nordic AI polymath and a French entrepreneurial Civil Servant whizz, and we hope to post part two with a Nordic Professor of Early Years, and an investor in edtech and Uber soon. Stay in touch and have a great week!

Beyond Brexit: A future that works for all

The employment and skills convention will explore how to grow a successful partnership with skills and employment support providers to increase and improve access to high-quality training, traineeships, apprenticeships, and T-Levels; and provide a platform for politicians and professionals to present latest developments in policy and delivery. Rt Hon Amber Rudd, secretary of state for work and pensions, will deliver a keynote address at the convention. The event should be of interest to experts and policymakers in employment, skills, health and welfare.
