EDUCATE partners with the Edtech Podcast

EVR and the EdTech Podcast have joined forces to present a collection of series exploring education, evidence, AI and EdTech, with host Professor Rose Luckin.


Tune in twice a month to hear from special guests and expert speakers, including teachers, researchers, parents, developers, young people, and those at the forefront of innovation in teaching and learning. 

Listen to the Latest Episode:

Coming to the fifth and final episode of our miniseries on AI for education, host Professor Rose Luckin is joined by Timo Hannay, Founder of SchoolDash, and Lord David Puttnam, Independent Producer, Chair of Atticus Education, and former member of the UK parliament's House of Lords.  This episode and our series have been generously sponsored by Nord Anglia Education.

Today we’re going to look ahead to the near and far future of AI in education, and ask what might be on the horizon that we can’t even predict, and what we can do as humans to proof ourselves against disruptions and innovations that have, like the Covid pandemic and ChatGPT's meteoric rise, rocked our education systems, and demanded we do things differently.



Talking points and questions include: 

  • Slow Reaction to AI: Despite generative AI's decade-long presence and EdTech's rise, the education sector's response to tools like ChatGPT has been surprisingly delayed. Why?

  • Learning from Our AI Response: Can our current reaction to generative AI serve as a case study for adapting to future tech shifts? It's a test of our educational system's resilience

  • AI's Double-Edged Sword: With ChatGPT's rapid rise, are EdTech companies risking harm by using AI without fully understanding it? Think Facebook's data misuse in the Rohingya massacre

  • Equipping Teachers for AI: Who can educators trust for AI knowledge? We need frameworks to guide them, as AI literacy is now as crucial as internet literacy

  • Digital Natives ≠ AI-Ready: Today's youth grew up online, but does that prepare them for sophisticated, accessible AI? Not necessarily

Our host:

  • Professor Rose Luckin, Founder and CEO, EVR

Our guests:

  • Lord David Puttnam, former member UK parliament House of Lords, Independent Producer, Chair of Atticus Education

  • Timo Hannay, Founder, SchoolDash

This month's bonus episode:

What's in this episode?


SCIENCE!  Under discussion today are the ways in which students who were switched off the sciences at school manage to retain their curiosity about the subjects and can even reengage with it later in life.  Professor Rose Luckin is very lucky to have in the online studio this week Dr Andrew Morris, Honorary Associate Professor at UCL, former president of the Education Section of the British Science Association, and author, whose book, Bugs, Drugs, and Three-Pin Plugs: Everyday Science, Simply Explained, is now available wherever books are sold.  

Dr Morris has an interest in serving learners and the public through scientific and evidence-based outreach.  The discussion in the studio centred around science, technology, research and practice in education.

Talking points and questions:

  • The ways in which people who were switched off the sciences at school retain their curiosity and can reengage with science at a later point in life

  • Examples of topics and ways of approaching science that have been revealed by Dr Morris’ science discussion groups

  • Research-informed educational practice, and research-informed educational policy

  • Ways in which research can be transformed and mediated for use
