Virtual Study Spaces, Yik Yak, and the History of Education


This episode is all about studying. We're joined by Marton Kosdi-Kovacs, Co-founder of Bindr.uk - a platform for online study sessions. We talk a bit about bindr, and Marton's experience as a young entrepeneur, and spend the rest of the hour taking a look at the highly interesting, yet often overlooked history of the system of education. 

Why do we have an age-based cohort, compulsory 12-year education system? Why hasn't it changed? Should it change? How so? 

Listen in to hear a range of different, rather radical suggestions for changing the way we experience school, as well as a look back at the Yik Yap app, and Zain's old encounter with an infamous royal family member.
