The Edtech Podcast, a weekly show hosted by Bailey herself, offers insights on current education technology trends, events, and innovations from the latest startups, organizations, and thought leaders. Its newest series features a wide range of inspirational guests from this year’s ASU GSV Summit held in Salt Lake City including Betsy Corcoran, founder & CEO of Edsurge and Sandy Speicher, Partner at the global design and innovation firm IDEO, and Managing Director of its Education practice.
“I am delighted that Michelson 20MM chose The Edtech Podcast to help spread the word about companies challenging the status quo in Higher Education,” said Sophie Bailey. “The Edtech Podcast has been lucky enough to play host to some of the world’s top Universities and member groups including MIT, UCLA, JISC, and ALT but also to today’s newest ventures such as Skills Fund, ClassCentral, Open Classroom, and Future Learn, that are changing the nature of HigherEd accreditation, student financing, and skills development.”
With over 1,000 listeners every week across 69 countries, the show exposes global education innovation efforts through interviews, events, and live shows.
“We share the Michelson 20MM belief that the future of higher education must be flexible and open to a range of solutions including modularisation or ‘unpacking degrees.’ It is with the support of organizations like this that the podcast can continue to share the rich and diverse conversations happening in edtech with a growing international audience,” explained Sophie Bailey.
The mission of The Edtech Podcast is to improve the dialogue between ‘ed’ and ‘tech’ for better innovation, and with over 75 episodes to date, it has amassed an impressive catalogue and list of participants.
“It’s very important [to our foundation] that we continue to raise awareness of the edtech community’s efforts in improving higher education,” said Dr. Gary K. Michelson, founder of Michelson 20MM. “This is yet another creative medium for spreading the stories of the many entrepreneurs, organizations, and networks that are currently involved in revamping the higher education landscape.”
