COVID-19 forced us to move our entire lives online almost overnight. Around the world, it changed how students are educated, how we work and how we socialize. As adults, we've gotten used to remote working and online meetings. But what about our kids? Are they sinking or swimming faced with this extensive use of technology?
In this episode, we hear about the side effects of online learning and explore the broader consequences of digitalizing such large parts of our children's lives.
This podcast is the result of a Nordic Talks online event arranged by Innovation Centre Denmark in Shanghai and Innovation Centre Denmark in Seoul, together with CopenX, and live-streamed from a virtual reality Nordic Talks conference room.
