Education, Disrupted
Play • 27 min

Proponents of a burgeoning education technology or 'ed tech' sector say digital learning platforms can radically transform how education is delivered, bringing a far better education to far more people—and help solve a global learning crisis. But adoption has been slow, with classrooms today little different from how they were half a century ago. Will the experiences of remote teaching and learning, enforced by covid-19, speed up innovation in the sector—or have they exposed flaws in the idea? We explore with technologists, researchers and educators. This podcast is supported by Pictet Wealth Management.
