Welcome to the very first episode of our brand new podcast - What the Edtech?!
We couldn’t have hoped for a better way to kick off series one, episode one, than being joined by education consultant and thought leader Eric Stoller. Eric was joined by our head of change - student experience Sarah Knight to discuss the value of social media and digital engagement and how it can transform education. We also hear from Kardi Somerfield, senior lecturer in digital marketing and advertising talking about her use of digital channels to engage students at The University of Northampton.
In this episode, Eric mentions his friend Sue Beckingham, an academic at Sheffield Hallam University who is using WhatsApp with her students and Dr David Webster at University of Gloucestershire who uses blogs as a platform. Eric also talks about Suzanne Faulkner, a tutor using Snapchat at the University of Strathclyde - you can read more about her work in this blog post. Finally, the podcast also references the #LTHEchat group on Twitter, which happens every Wednesday evening.
