MarketScale EdTech 01/08/19: The Power of Continuous Education

2019 is going to be a big year for EdTech, mostly because of the shift in generational teaching. Gen Z’s flexible learning style is leading to new methodologies, new technology and new initiatives for what works in today’s modern classroom. These methods of transmitting knowledge are changing and going more and more online, in both corporate education, higher education, and personal education.

What we’ve come to find, though, is just because something’s online doesn’t make it engaging or innovative; eLearning is experiencing a transition of its own. On today’s MarketScale EdTech Podcast show, we speak with Clint Clarkson, founder and managing partner of e-Learning Alchemy, Ltd., and Shelley Osborne, head of learning and development at Udemy. From how to present information to get employees interested, to the importance of continuous learning as an adult, this week’s podcast shines a light on the power of never being done with your education.
