Theme

Is digital technology in the classroom here to stay after the pandemic? Can digital technologies help to improve both learning and teaching? Or will digital devices induce “digital dementia” in our children if used too much. How much screen time is enough? Which platforms can we use to strengthen the best practice exchange between teachers and educational institutions? How can digital technologies reduce educational barriers and close the digital divide? And, what role can governments play, especially in de-centralized education systems like Germany and the U.S.?
In this web-talk, we'll discuss how educational technology should best be incorporated in the classroom. We want to address what we know today about how technology is already influencing learning, but also explore what we still don’t know.
