What's in this episode?

In this week's BONUS episode we throw back to Ian Hurd recording at the graduation of the first cohort of teachers to complete a nationally recognised qualification from the National Centre for Computing Education (NCCE).

Ian is first in conversation with Professor Simon Peyton Jones, the NCCE Chair, and Liza Belozerova, Google.org Program Manager for Europe, Middle East and Africa. Both guests share some good reads and inspirational tech for teachers in this space.

Also in this episode two real-world learning opportunities for students. First, Constance Agyeman, Nesta’s Head of Thriving Communities, introduces the Longitude Explorer Prize focusing on getting a more diverse group of young people into AI, tech and innovation. Next, Sevra Davis, Head of Learning at the Design Museum, talks about Design Ventura, aimed at encouraging design thinking, creativity and business acumen in young people.

Happy listening!
