This week I’m speaking to Olivier Crouzet, Director of Pedagogy at Ecole 42. For anyone who doesn’t know Ecole 42, 42 is a private, nonprofit and tuition-free computer programming school created and funded by French billionaire Xavier Niel. “The school does not have any professors, does not issue any diploma or degree, and is open 24/7. The training is inspired by new modern ways to teach which include peer-to-peer pedagogy and project-based learning.”
I’m in conversation with the wonderful Sandy Speicher, Managing Director at Ideo Education Practice talking about design thinking in education. I also chat to Nick Robinson, Co-Founder and CEO, ELTJam about learner experience design. Finally, I give a sneak peak into what’s coming up on The Edtech Podcast next, including a brand new series in November and January.
I’m in conversation with the CEO of Kahoot, Erik Harrell. We talk British education in Thailand, sailing around the Nordic Fjords & commercialising Kahoot! Plus, David Levin announces he is leaving McGrawHill Education.

In this episode we talk about how Betsy left her secure role at Forbes (at the height of the economic recession). Betsy then embarked on some educational volunteering, dust-bunny collection and finally set up Edsurge in a bid to better understand why the future technologies of learning were not making it into the everyday schools of California. We also talk yoga, egos and high-stakes student academic and entrepreneurial expectation in the Silicon Valley, as well as what Hamilton the musical has got to do with Personalised Learning.
Welcome everyone to this sixth episode from the ASU GSV Summit series on The Edtech Podcast. This week we’re getting into the ed innovation landscape, with extensive research conducted by Navitas Ventures with their Edtech Census. I’ve also been listening to podcasts about the Shift Commission and their insight into the Future of Work and how our current mortgage and insurance structures are currently too tied up with past models of long-term employment, rather than self-directed gig economy stuff. Which I can relate to!
Welcome everyone to this fifth episode from the ASU GSV Summit series on The Edtech Podcast. This week we’re getting into the many-headed beast of educational reform.
Educational reform can mean many things to many people, but essentially focuses on changing public education for the better.
