Share

Sonia Livingstone, professor of Social Psychology and Head of the Department of Media and Communications at the London School of Economics and Political Science, gave a talk in the context of #EdChange 2021 on the use of digital technologies in education. 

In this clip she mentions the network EU Kids Online and their report from 2020 about the use of the Internet at schools. 

In July 2021, the use of mobile devices in classrooms was banned in Great Britain. Livingstone contrasts this decision with the European Commission for Education’s perspective which highlights the relevance of including technology in the classroom and in education.
