In this first episode of a two part series on edtech trends at Websummit, I speak to MIT Professor Brian Subirana, Director of the AutoID Laboratory and Nikos Tzagkarakis of iYouth Lab and Tania Roquette of Full Fabric on the value of technology in higher education and how to avoid edtech being a chase to the bottom
I speak to Head of Innovation at UNHCR, Andrew Harper on what the tech community and the edtech community can do for the 65 million currently displaced and Benjamin Merritt of It’s Alive on the role of chatbot technology in educational support services, and we get to know one of the many new Phygital services where digital and physical overlap in the form of Magikbee and Hugo Filipe Ribeiro.
