What’s in this episode?
Hello listeners and welcome back to The Edtech Podcast, the show about improving the dialogue between “ed” and “tech” for better innovation and impact.
This week we share recordings made live at the launch of the European Edtech Network during London Edtech Week. For those who have been following the news, the ambitions of the network are interesting in the wake of Alt Schools pivot after raising nearly $200 million; many level the perceived failure or change of direction at Alt School to the lack of educators at the helm, relying only on the silicon valley faith in everything tech.
We also throw in a few listener messages and some news from the world of edtech events.
Enjoy 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.
