On the Ed Innovation Landscape
This week we’re getting into the ed innovation landscape, with extensive research conducted by Navitas Ventures with their Edtech Census. I’ve also been listening to podcasts about the Shift Commission and their insight into the Future of Work. I was particularly interested in how our current mortgage and insurance structures are too tied up with past models of long-term employment, rather than self-directed gig economy stuff, (which I can relate to!)
I also took a peek at the Pearson and Nesta collaboration on #FutureSkills which forecasted the top 10 most likely jobs for growth to 2030 in the UK and US, as well as skills in demand during the same period. I was pleased to see Artistic, Literary and Media Occupations in the UK top ten jobs, as well as teaching and educational professionals.
This week – the same week that President Trump allocated $200m US dollars to STEM education – I have also been talking to some educational professionals from Denmark, Poland, Finland and Singapore about their views on how STEM is taught, ahead of a panel I’m moderating for Lego next month. You can see some of my notes about the various approaches on The Edtech Podcast blog.
So, the ed innovation landscape. What can you expect? In this episode, we speak to Patrick Brothers, CEO, Navitas Ventures on the Global Edtech Census, which has mapped over 30,000 education companies from around the world into various edtech specialisms, plus extra conversations with Scott Kinney, Senior Vice President, at Discovery Education and Matthew Johnson, Associate, Cooley LLP, give us the low down on K-12 and legal landscapes around education innovation in the US and globally.
And, what’s more, there’s additional market mapping content from the ASU GSV Summit team, including Michael Moe’s fantastic keynote from this year’s ASU GSV Summit, plus presentations on ’The Best in Class’ featuring speakers from Finland, China and Singapore. For all this and more join our weekly email or check in via the ASU GSV Summit website asugsvsummit.com where the whole series is listed.
