This week we are looking at language learning and tech. How we learn languages is changing. Apps, MOOCs, Chatbots and online tutoring services have all worked to reduce the time and investment needed to pick up and master a language. At the more extreme end some advanced technologies have even brought into question whether learning a language in the traditional sense will be needed in the future. And, should it be humans or machines testing second language acquisition? Find out in episode 99!
This week we’ve got a throw back to a meet up in October of this year where we looked at demystifying investment in edtech. This episode is one for the start ups listening in, though educators may find it interesting to hear about where money is being spent and how start ups are going about building their innovations around the world. First up you will hear a quick word from Richard Male at the UFI Charitable Fund for Vocational Technology on what funding is out there for post-16 edtech, next a quick word from Jo Sayers at ELTJam with word on investment from publishers SAGE and then into a brilliant speech from Ben Drury, Co-Founder and CEO at Yoto, on “What have I learnt about fundraising and investment in the past 10 years” replete with anecdotes and advice on when to act like a politician and ps.

In this episode we look at how to maintain responsible and calm digital citizenship at a time of screaming headlines, whilst also looking at the necessary ethical and philosophical questions which come with advanced technology. We also review what the future of work might look like, following research conducted by Pearson and Nesta on the future of skills and employment in 2030.
With global leaders tweeting about artificial intelligence or AI as the next arms race, and forecasts predicting the near-term decimation of existing jobs markets due to artificial intelligence and automation, episode 2 is a great time to explore the question: What is AI and what has it got to do with me and my students?
This week we’re in the last of our three HigherEd focused episodes recorded at Ovum’s Future Edtech event. I’m in conversation with Nicole Engelbert, Director of Research & Analysis, at Ovum Technology. Nicole used to work as a director of admissions, so is well placed to understand the HigherEd perspective, as well as the latest industry research on innovation within the HE sector. We talk about what’s up and what’s down and the pace of change in HE.
This week we set up the series by looking at the “four foci of edtech” > mixed reality, bio-synching, data science (AI) & human-machine relations
