My Teacher Is an App – Radio 4 Series

A colleague from work mentioned a documentary series which had aired on Radio 4 last month.

Each 30 min episode focuses on changes in education being brought about by technology;

  1. The Classroom of the Future
  2. The University of the Future
  3. An Education Revolution? 

I’m currently half way through the second episode and can really recommend the series. It raises many questions currently being addressed within education, especially in relation to technology.

The University of the Future episode focuses on MOOC’s.

Demos

Recently came across the Demos site after reading an article through the Guardian media network. Promoted as “Britain’s leading cross-party think-tank” reading articles from this site breaths fresh air into ongoing debates and research. Well worth a look, particularly the publications which address such broad areas and issues.
