How to build learning and ed technologies in the new world? (with Ash Kaluarachchi, StartED)
April 30, 2020
In this episode, we connect the dots with learning technologies.
Can we turn institutions like Harvard into ecosystems on demand? Can we turn classes into collaborative environments with a hand-picked approach? Can we make it completely personalized and aligned with individual diversity? How would it affect social mobility and the future of talent? And more importantly, how could we achieve it still keeping ethics and privacy mechanisms?
Today’s conversation with Ash Kaluarachchi from StartEd – one of the world’s leading tech accelerators focused on educational, learning and workforce technologies. Originated from a program closely connected to New York University, it evolved into an ecosystem that connects the dots of emerging EdTech startups around the world.
