Welcome to episode number 108 of the podcast. Today I have the pleasure of sharing the No Tosh founder and CEO Ewan McIntosh with you all.
Leading projects around the world for clients in education and industry, Ewan is the passionate and energising tour de force behind NoTosh. A highly-regarded keynote speaker at events around the world, he’s also the author of How To Come Up With Great Ideas And Actually Make Them Happen and regularly writes about learning on his blog edu.blogs.com.
“As a French and German high school teacher in Scotland back in the 1990s, Ewan wanted to find new ways to help students engage with his subjects – He felt strongly that technology was both critical to this and underused in the classroom, so Ewan’s classes were among the first in Europe to podcast and blog as part of their daily learning.
“From here, it was a reasonably logical step to for Ewan to become National Advisor on Learning and Technology Futures for the Scottish Government… although joining Channel 4 as their Digital Commissioner in 2008 was a step in a different direction. But it was on Channel 4 that Ewan became fascinated by the strategies and tactics that his creative colleagues used to create imaginative and truly engaging digital services for young people. Ewan thought could he take this insight and make it work in an education setting? Yes, he I could… and that’s how NoTosh came about.”
