Madeleine Mortimore is a researcher who serves as the Global Education Innovation and Research Lead at Logitech. She studied at the Harvard Graduate School of Education and has worked in various areas of EdTech as an international educator, an innovator at the MIT Teaching and Learning Lab, a strategist associated with one of the largest online high schools in the U.S., and she also launched an EdTech startup at the Harvard Innovation Lab.
Madeleine joins host Mike Palmer to discuss the research she has recently conducted on remote learning and how to optimize EdTech to create a healthy learning environment for students. We hear her advice on pursuing a career as a learning professional as she shares what it’s been like doing research into one-to-one computing where each student has a device enabled for use in the classroom. Whether it’s the importance of audio and acoustics, or the role of live webcams to build connection, accountability, and trust, we explore what’s new and emerging in the design of flexible learning environments in a fun and cutting edge conversation you won’t want to miss.
