Welcome to the inaugural edition of my monthly EdTech News Roundup column here at the Makematic blog.
On joining the Makematic team about eight weeks ago, I re-submerged myself into the world of EdTech. In doing so, I’ve come across some interesting articles that I feel are worth sharing.
I personally love reading about how our sector is evolving. I’ll share some of what I read each month going forward.
Rethinking the teacher’s role
Ben Johnson for Edutopia discusses the need for teachers to be referred to as learning engineers as it better describes a modern teacher’s role.
How women created some of the world’s biggest education tech companies
The ever knowledgeable Natalie Nezhati has written a great piece for The Guardian on how and why women are taking the lead in the EdTech sector.
How technology can help break down barriers of accessibility in education
And finally a piece on why accessibility is about a lot more than affordability, and how EdTech can bridge the gap.
Whoever said education and/or technology was dull? Don’t forget to check back next month for another edition of my EdTech News Roundup.
