Listening to the opening remarks for the #EdTech Winter School by @cristobalcobo.

'Not everything that counts can be counted'

#edtech #educhat #edchat
'Create connections to re-think #education inntje age of digital technology.'

#EdTechUy #EdChat #DigitalEducation
The first session of the Winter School is lead by @lucipangrazio on young people's literacies in the digital age.

#EdTechUy #EdChat #DigitalEducation #ChildRightsChat
'Technology is not a neutral tool for social practices by young people' - @lucipangrazio on the importance of taking into consideration the social but also the technical context when studying young people's digital literacies.

#EdTechUy #EdChat #DigitalEducation #ChildRightsChat
One key challenge for further research on young people's digital literacies is the polarization of the debate, particularly among adults.

'Finsta' or fake Instagram accounts is one example to understand the experiences of young people within and through social media platforms and technologies in terms of Identity, representation, participation.

.@fundacionceibal recently posted a paper by @lucipangrazio in the Pages of Education Journal of @UCUoficial - "What’s New About ‘Fake News’? Critical Digital Literacies in an Era of Fake News, Post-Truth and Clickbait"

In the project 'Researching the everyday digital' teachers shared their best practices and rationale to use technology in [and beyond] the classroom. You can watch all the videos and the overall project here:…

'We need participatory #research that supports teachers, parents and other adults to develop young people's digital literacies but also that informs and speaks back to policymakers' - @lucipangrazio

Andres Lombana is talking now about access and opportunities for young people in the digital age.

#EdTechUy #EdTech #DigitalEconomy #DigitalChild
Andres Lombana (@vVvA) fellow @BKCHarvard @YouthandMedia presenting an ethnographic study in the US that revealed the #DigitalDivide: young people HAVE access to technology but the quality of access is not the same (broken devices, slow connections, etc.).

#EdTechUy #EdTech
Knowledge exchange strategies such as tech labs or meet&greet sessions can help disadvantaged children and young people to expand their capital (social + cultural + economic), close the #DigitalDivide and combat #SocialSegregation.

#EdTechUy #EdTech #DigitalChild #DigitalRights
Question from the audience "Are we asking too much for technology (platforms, tools, resources) to address social problems such as exclusion or inequality?"

@vVvA reply "Technology is not neutral and we must think in terms of digital equity to come up with solutions"
