FreshEd podcast: Technology, Education, and the Digital Generation


DigiGen’s Halla Holmarsdottir joined Will Brehm on his weekly FreshEd podcast. They discussed the effects of technological transformations in the everyday lives of children and young people and how education systems are adapting to these changes. And might we learn something from the coronavirus when it comes to technology and education?

Children today are inundated with technology. Video games, smartphones, and computers are common in the lives of today’s digital generation. With school closures from the covid-19 pandemic, learning from home only added to the screen time overload for many children.

FreshEd with Will Brehm is a weekly podcast that takes ideas in educational research, which may initially seem impenetrable, and seeks to make them more accessible, unraveling their complexity through conversations with expert academics in the field.
