What’s in this episode?

Hello dear listeners and welcome to episode two of the Education 4.0 series. This episode was largely recorded at the recent Digifest event run by Jisc. I’m in conversation with a variety of edtech entrepreneurs, further and higher education specialists in information technology, big data ethics and skills development about what Education 4.0 means and what the implications might be for how we “do” education. I hope you enjoy and don’t forget to message in or post using #edu4_0!
