This episode couldn’t be more timely, whilst CERN throw out an associate for being silly about women in Physics, and whilst a woman in Physics wins the Physics Nobel Prize, Dr Jess Wade takes to the stage to tell us all about the history of polymaths and why we should all be more polymathematical. So throw off the STEM/ARTS armoury and embrace one another!

This week’s episode features my conversation with Geoff Barton, the General Secretary of the Association of School and College Leaders. We talk about what the top priorities are for education leaders, in which situations technology can be a useful leadership tool, and why podcasts are flipping brilliant. This interview was recorded at the Global Education and Skills Forum. This episode also features part two of our mini-series feature on digital transformation with Kenny Nicholl from Canvas. I kick off by asking him about moving on from his VP role to take on the title of GM for EMEA and all that entails. A huge thank you to our guests, listeners and sponsors!

Reducing teacher workload using edtech says a lot and nothing at all. While the possibility of it seems like utopia to most educators, the teaching and the phenomenal workload that comes with it, is its reality. So, the big question is how can the use of educational technology help with teacher’s workload? What is the magic that is taking place behind the scenes?

This final episode of The Pearson series on future tech for education reflects on edtech internationally. What does a review of 130 reports on edtech internationally tell us about best practice and evidence based learning in emergencies and displaced settings? What are the common misconceptions about connectivity as a barrier to edtech, and when are these well-founded? How can technology help scale access to teaching and learning and how do we ensure learners still benefit from mentors and face to face teaching. And when it comes down to it, what comes first on a phone – a learning game or a photo of your loved ones? All this and more in today’s episode.
