In this podcast Sam Talbot Rice speaks to Nathan Martin, head of marketing at ed tech start up Off2Class and former strategist at Pearson, about how technology is changing education. Whilst ed tech was already a fast growing sector pre-Covid, the experience of the pandemic and the largescale roll-out – almost overnight – of remote delivery of education, has been a game changer. But underlying the growth and opportunities are some notable challenges and concerns – including in respect of data security, children’s privacy and the educational efficacy of different technologies and delivery models. We explore these issues further and consider to what extent a clear picture is emerging as to what works, and what the big trends are in the sector.
