How does your current role allow you to make a difference to the education and learning space?

My background as a scientist and a software engineer, my current roles as a technology investor and entrepreneur and my passion for education enable me to try new techniques and constantly innovate in this space.

What are the key trends you believe have the power to transform the way we learn?

My expertise is in science and Mathematics and I'll comment on these:
a) Improvements in cloud computing and the power of end-user devices make it possible to utilise diverse technologies such as social networks, physics simulations, computer algebra - to completely rewrite the rules of Science and Mathematics education - from the way textbooks are written to how the subject matter is taught.
b) Availability of free content (videos, blogs, articles, discussion forums) to supplement traditional learning resources such as text-books has the power to vastly enrich, improve and democratise the learning experience across the world - which will allow the world to discover, nurture and develop talent from any part of the world.
