Welcome to the third episode of the GLOBAL edition of our What Matters in Edtech Series, our podcast collaboration with Bett. This podcast series is all about the things that matter in education, and how and when tech might help.

A big shout out to Bett for supporting this series, to HP for supporting this episode, and to our fantastic guests for making this episode so insightful.

What's in this episode?

This week, we are chatting to Bett’s Global Education Council, getting to grips with the council’s manifesto set in January and the way COVID has impacted the manifesto ideals and how urgently they are implemented. Our guests reflect on how the pause given by the pandemic has allowed an opportunity to teach back better and how this can be achieved.

You can follow the conversation using #edtechpod and #Bett2021.
