Winter 2023 Lectures

During this lecture, we will draw a portrait of digital equity issues in education. To do this, we will begin by briefly recalling how digital equity has emerged as an object of study and what scientific concerns it currently raises. We will then describe the main manifestations of digital inequity among young people in their daily life outside of school, as well as the role that schools play in this regard. We will conclude by presenting courses of action for greater digital equity in education.
