What's in this episode?

Hello listeners and welcome back to The Edtech Podcast, the show about improving the dialogue between “ed” and “tech” for better innovation and impact.

This week we share recordings made live at the launch of the European Edtech Network during London Edtech Week. For those who have been following the news, the ambitions of the network are interesting in the wake of Alt Schools pivot after raising nearly $200 million; many level the perceived failure or change of direction at Alt School to the lack of educators at the helm, relying only on the silicon valley faith in everything tech.

We also throw in a few listener messages and some news from the world of edtech events.

Enjoy and have a great week!
