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:

What's in this episode?

Continuing our miniseries on AI in education with the third episode centred around a global perspective on AI, host Professor Rose Luckin is joined by Andreas Schleicher of the OECD, Dr Elise Ecoff of Nord Anglia Education, and Dan Worth of Tes.  This episode and our series are generously sponsored by Nord Anglia Education.

In our third instalment of this valuable series, we head out beyond the UK and the English-speaking world to get a global perspective on AI, and ask how educators and developers around the world build and engage with AI, and what users, teachers and learners want from the technology that might tell people back home a thing or two. We examine how international use of AI might change the way we engage with AI, and we also ask why they might be doing things differently.


  • Dr Andreas Schleicher, Director for the Directorate of Education & Skills, OECD

  • Dr Elise Ecoff, Chief Education Officer, Nord Anglia Education

  • Dan Worth, Senior Editor, Tes

Talking points and questions include: 

  • What are other countries tech and education ecosystems doing to develop and implement AI?

  • International considerations of ethics and regulation

  • Is the first world imposing a way of looking at technology and its innovation on the third world? What assumptions are we making, and are we mindful of the context?

  • Is the first world restricting innovation through specific regulation to change what technology is being built and how, and who might it benefit?

  • Skills and competencies development can be driven by the needs of business – what priorities for AI education exhibited by international models could the UK adopt or consider?

Our host:

  • Professor Rose Luckin, Founder and CEO, EVR

Our guests:

  • Dr Andreas Schleicher, Director for the Directorate of Education & Skills, OECD

  • Dr Elise Ecoff, Chief Education Officer, Nord Anglia Education

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
