What Matters in EdTech - Global Education Council

In this episode, our Global Education Council get to grips with the council’s manifesto set in January, discuss the way COVID has impacted its ideals and how urgently they are implemented. They reflect on how the pause given by the pandemic has allowed an opportunity to teach back better and how this can be achieved.

How can we take this moment to be more expansive about how we think about education, teaching and learning?

How can we ensure quality across multiple technology platforms that attempt to support at this moment?
