What Matters in EdTech - Middle East & Africa

Our second episode is "What Matters in EdTech Middle East and Africa" which invites guests working in the region, to explore some of the particular opportunities and challenges of education locally. We will focus on some projects and places, highlighting the nuances between countries, systems, cultures and implementation of learning technologies focused on learner outcome and support. We will also look at how schools and colleges have adapted as Coronavirus shifts usual teaching, learning practices and communication.

The episode also features a 17-year-old student on why the youth will drive change in education, a charity supporting teaching and learning access for refugees, and the principal of a school on keeping calm and carrying on during lockdown.
