The Edtech Podcast https://theedtechpodcast.com Wed, 23 May 2018 09:07:12 +0000 http://backend.userland.com/rss092 en-US #117 – Nordic Edtech & Innovation This week’s episode features three conversations from across Norway, Finland and Sweden. First up, I just wanted to give all this week’s guests a massive high five for their amazing accents. Listen in to hear about everything from where to hang out in Austin, what happens when you take an artificial intelligence course online aged 13, and how to get over global education being either about holistic wellbeing or being great at PISA.

#115 – Anant Agarwal, CEO, edX This week I am in conversation with edX CEO Anant Agarwal. I interviewed Anant the day after he shared a stage with US Ed Secretary, Betsy De Vos, where he encouraged her to consider a range of policy options in front of a live audience at SXSWEDU in Austin. In this recording we talk about that experience, plus how MOOCS and online learning are developing, why writing is as important as coding, why choosing your favourite learner is as bad as having a favourite child, and we even invite Class Central Founder Dhawal Shah to bring his expertise to bear after his fantastic talk on The Evolution of MOOCs also at SXSW Edu. 

“If I were to re-do my life, I would spend more time on writing.” I really enjoy writing, I used to write poems and so on”
