Mydhili talks about her journey from a psychology major to an edtech entrepreneur and what caused the shift. She tells us about her interesting work with the Harvard Graduate School of Education, where she did her Master's in the Technology in Education course. She also did a project with MIT Media Lab during this time, which she walks us through. We learn about qualitative user research techniques especially when you're working with children and young adults. She brings out the importance of building trust and having genuine curiosity about children's lives to glean useful insights that can help designers come up with better educational products for them. She walks us through what sparked the creation of Young Current and what it takes to build a child-safe news reading experience while also keeping it interesting. She also gives us her take on where edtech is headed next and how budding edtechpreneurs and designers can find their way into this interesting field.
