Ben Whitaker

We are led to believe that education will evolve to meet the needs of our learners but it has not; we need a revolution.

Ben is a freelance consultant working with a number of clients on both digital and cultural transformation. Prior to this, Ben worked in education for 15 years as an Assistant Principal and Curriculum Manager, focusing on Apprenticeships, Digital Transformation, and formerly in his subject specialisms of Religious Studies and Sociology. He is co-host of the popular Edufuturists podcast where he explores the future of education by interviewing thinkers from around the world, most notably around the implications of A.I. in Education. Ben has travelled around the world talking about effective tech integration that has an impact on learning and culture.

Ben is chair of governors at a primary school but most importantly he is husband to Amanda, and dad to Niamh (13) and Martha (9).
