What Matter in EdTech - Skills

This episode was recorded LIVE at #Bett2020 and is all about skills. We take a top-level view of the skills agenda both here and internationally, looking into why there is a disconnect between education and skills requirements and where the UK stands on solving this issue compared to the rest of the world. We then drill into some of the vocational learning experiences which are attempting to take on the skills gap. 

Happy Listening! And, as we wrap up this “What Matters in Edtech” series, do send in your highlights in the comments below or record a quick free voicemail via speakpipe. We’d love to share your thoughts!
