GUEST PODCAST: Ed-Technical Season 1 Episode 7 - part 1

Join two former teachers – Libby Hills from the Jacobs Foundation and AI researcher Owen Henkel – for the Ed-Technical podcast series about AI in education.

Each episode, guest hosted on BOLD, Libby and Owen will ask experts to help educators sift the useful insights from the AI hype. They’ll be asking questions such as “How does AI really help students and teachers?”, “What do we actually know about this technology, and what’s just speculation?” and “When we say ‘AI’, what are we actually talking about?”

In the seventh episode of this series, Libby and Owen talk to six EdTech investors about their views on AI in education. Guests join from Rethink Education, Educapital, Achieve Partners, Sparkmind, Brighteye Ventures and Reach Capital for a two part episode. In this first part, investors tell us what opportunities they see for AI potentially improving the student learning experience. 

Join to hear their views about how AI could help develop teacher support tools, as well as longer term possibilities such as delivering personalised learning experiences for students. Fear not, we don’t take an overly simplistic view on personalisation (a term we hear often in connection with AI), but are able to unpack a bit of the nuance here with some of our guests. 

Join us next time for part two, which focuses on how AI might disrupt existing EdTech business models.
