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!

- This podcast is sponsored by Salesforce.org
- Salesforce.org is the dedicated team at Salesforce that delivers technology to nonprofits, educational institutions, and philanthropic organisations so they can connect with others and do more good.
- Salesforce.org empowers higher education with its Education Cloud: a set of integrated solutions built on the world’s #1 CRM, developed for the specific needs of the industry and in close collaboration with the community it represents.
- In today’s fast-moving world, leveraging technology is essential to deliver the personalised, proactive and continuous experiences each student expect. But how can institutions embrace digital transformation and how can they leverage technology to improve the student experience, achieve operational excellence and strengthen their relationships with the community they serve?
- With a desire to help the community find answers to these questions, Salesforce.org launched the Higher Ed Summit in the US 8 years ago and has gathered thousands of higher ed professionals to share insights and connect with peers annually ever since. To better serve their growing community of education trailblazers in Europe, the team has launched a regional summit called the Higher Ed Summit Horizons. And this year, Salesforce.org invites every higher ed professional & institution leader to join the ranks in Paris on the 10th of October and be inspired by pioneers in higher ed digital transformation. From building brand awareness, transforming the applicant experience, enhancing student services, building lifelong alumni relationships, or managing change and optimising technology across the campus, you’ll hear from pioneers who have paved the way for the future of higher education and have driven all kinds of innovations at their institutions.
- The Edtech Podcast will be at the event, moderating a panel discussion and conducting interviews. Come join us and have a chat: Register today at “sfdc.co/HORIZONS2019“ using our special code “EDTECH50 ” to get 50% off the ticket.
