How the digitization of schooling is affecting parents and educators during the COVID-19 global pandemic.

Education for kids during COVID-19

For the 162nd edition of the Transatlantic Cable podcast, Dave and Jeff take a break from the mike to welcome a special feature from our friends over at Tomorrow Unlocked. In this episode, Kaspersky security expert David Jacoby looks at the digitization of schooling for parents and educators during the COVID-19 global pandemic.

Digitization is transforming all facets of society, not just work environments. The pandemic is driving digitization at an astonishing speed, showing that there is still a lot more to be done. The field of education is mainly reactive; other industries develop new disruptive technologies that existing educational cultures and systems then apply and accommodate.

The latest big disruption in the education sector came about because of the COVID-19 crisis, which has caused millions of students to learn from home instead of in school classrooms. Schools have had to react quickly. To understand more about the current situation, and how education has to change in the future, we invited Filip Dochy, an expert on education at the KU Leuven, and two parents, Daniela Alvarez De Lugo and Riccardo de Rinaldini, to talk with David Jacoby.
