Introduction, Emerge Education Cohort 8 open, Edtech Podcast 1st Birthday Party (come!), Naace and more 1:1 interview with award winning musician and innovator Imogen Heap Developing the technology of the MiMu gesture glove over the last seven years Stepping outside of expected musical forms, influenced by the open movements of makers and hackers Sneaking around MIT Lab, NASA & why Imogen is excited about VR and the potential to stay connected Sample quotations: I suppose twenty years ago I signed my first record deal and back in those days you make music and that was it. Don’t even think about the video or doing the art work. It took me a long time to shake those ideas and step out and collaborate with people. And then i discovered all these hackers and makers involved in that stuff Over the last seven years I’ve been developing a set of technology called the mi mu gloves to help me augment those acoustic sounds, to bring them to live physically. It gets me very very excited about the next generation. They are not going to be stuck behind a laptop. Imogen if you and your team want to come around the Goddard space centre give us a shout. She invited me to the MIT media lab I saw many bits of tech but this is the one that really resonated with me ON VR: This is the reality of how kids will be learning in the future Messages from The Edtech Podcast:
