head of publishing, Discovery Education
Susanna Goldschmidt has spent 10 years working in educational publishing in different countries across Europe. Her first encounter with digital textbooks was when developing language-learning software for Munich-based startup Digital Publishing AG. Subsequent roles in the UK and Spain, with a focus on publishing more conventional, paper-based resources for modern languages, science, the humanities and maths, gave her broad exposure to different paradigms for commissioning and writing textbooks, and insight into the role that published resources play in different national education systems. In her current role at Discovery Education, she oversees the development of Discovery Education’s award-winning digital teaching and learning service for primary schools, Discovery Education Espresso.
