What's in this episode?

This episode is all about Innovation.

What is innovation? How can it be measured and sustained? How can a culture of innovation be developed, and what examples of pedagogical and technological innovation have come to the fore in recent years? We speak to entrepreneurs, ecosystem developers, academics and educators about the role of innovation and hear about how innovation is evolving in virtual reality in Singapore, career technical education in the US, STEAM education in Belgium, and real-world problem-solving in Bhutan. Plus, why educators are inherent innovators and more about the edtech innovation testbed here in the U.K. Phew!
