Girls are underrepresented in computer science education and professions. According to the National Science Board’s “Science and Engineering Indicators for 2012,” women make up only 26% of Computer Science and Mathematical Science professionals in the United States.

Dan’s visit to the Apple Store prompts a discussion of the new iPad Pro, and just what you can and can’t do on Apple’s tablet. Are we all just too old to give up our laptops for tablets? The New York Times and Google recently teamed up to deliver another way to use your smartphone – for virtual reality, via Google Cardboard. Is this the beginning of an expansion of VR? Or is it just the View-Master of Mills’ and Stephen’s youth reborn? Finally, we discussed the recent study of media use by tweens and teens by Common Sense Media that highlighted the digital disparities facing low-income teens. In particular, although most have smartphones, they lack access to laptops or desktops on which to do the increasing amount of online homework teachers are assigning. Stephen and Dan talked about the key role of public libraries in giving teenagers access to computers and wireless Internet.

Steve Blank is known by some as “The Startup Whisperer" -- the guy that entrepreneurs turn to when they have questions about how to start or energize their business. He is also a serial entrepreneur, professor and investor who is perhaps best known for his books Four Steps to the Epiphany and The Startup Owner's Manual. Last week Steve stopped by our studio to cast his experienced and critical eye on the business of edtech. In a wide-ranging chat with EdSurge CEO Betsy Corcoran, Steve talks about about the history of Silicon Valley, edtech’s commercialization problem, and whether entrepreneurship in edtech is really any different than regular tech.

Do high-income communities, which enjoy the resources and flexibility to experiment with bold ideas, offer the most ideal test-beds for innovation? Or do the most viable—and practical—ideas come from low-income neighborhoods where the challenges and needs are visible everyday? EdSurge welcome two entrepreneurs to the debate: Alejandro Gac-Artigas, the founder of Philadelphia-based Springboard Collaborative, which seeks to close the achievement gap and end summer reading loss by engaging parents and training teachers, and Max Ventilla, the mastermind and founder of AltSchool, a Bay Area-based network of “microschools” that currently charges more than $20,000 a year in tuition.
It’s not every day that we receive visits from entrepreneurs or nonprofits leads who can site as viral of growth as the EdCamp movement. For those of you wondering if that the name for some educational type of summer camp, let me help you out. Edcamps, or “unconferences,” bring together teachers, tech experts, entrepreneurs, and anyone else interested in the education landscape, to talk about, well, whatever they want. They involve very little planning, and the schedule is entirely decided by participants only once they’ve showed up to an EdCamp. Sound a little unconventional? Well, this novelty has become, dare we say, a viral movement since the very first gathering back in May 2010. In fact, there have been more than 250 Edcamps around the world in the last year alone. The Executive Director of the EdCamp Foundation, Hadley Ferguson, stopped by the EdSurge Office on October 19 because we were curious to learn more about just what caused this viral growth. But we didn’t stop there ...
Great timing for us, as we record the podcast on the very day the US Appeals Court rules that yes, scanning in-copyright books for the purpose of creating an online index of them is indeed a transformative and therefore fair use. Huzzah! The way is clear for all kinds of things now. We also talk about a new digital humanities / libraries tool called BigDIVA that launched today, discussing mainly its plan to become a subscription-based paid service. That leads into a brief digression on the recent patent win by the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation against Apple, which could potentially raise almost half a billion dollars for the University of Wisconsin system (just enough to make up for proposed budget cuts). We refrain from comment. Finally, Stephen Robertson reports on RRCHNM’s plan to build a new tool called Tropy, which would help researchers organize the pictures they take in archives.

Fraser rounds out the series on Diffusion of Innovations by Everett M Rogders by discussing the 11th and final chapter in the book entitled “Consequences of Innovations”. Fraser discusses Rogers’ three types of consequences: Desirable vs Undesirable, Intended vs Unintended and Anticipated vs Unanticipated. He also looks at the question of the impact of diffusion efforts on equality and the ideal rate of change that allows a social system to adopt innovations without producing too much instability in the social order.

Privacy. What a buzzword, but also a major point of contention for the past twelve months. Parents, companies, educators… everyone’s been jumping into the conversation on this topic. The proliferation of education technology has led to many questions about what, and how, student data is collected, analyzed and used. As student privacy and security concerns grow, how do we respond? Last week, EdSurge conducted a panel in partnership with Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe, a global law firm that’s got its eye on the privacy debate. Panelists included Dan Carroll, co-founder of edtech company Clever, and Reach Capital partner Shauntel Poulson. EdSurge CEO Betsy Corcoran dove into how edtech leaders should address privacy issues while still advancing learning opportunities. Do companies need to yield to the demands and whims of privacy critics? Or can we all somehow reach a Kum-ba-ya understanding around the edtech campfire? Listen to the podcast to find out.

Not too long ago, it was pretty new that students could print their own papers in the classroom, or that teachers could spontaneously print materials for their classes. But these days, printing has gotten a little bit more advanced--and we're not just talking about 3D Printing. If one startup as its way, the average science classroom might soon be printing live cells. That’s right, live cells. This week, we talked to the two co-founders of SE3D Education, who are making a table-top, affordable 'bioprinter' that they hope will change the way we teach biology and other science subjects. And the big question on our mind is this: Should students be able to print living cells?
