Abstract

The COVID-19 pandemic has posed an unprecedented challenge to countries worldwide. With the emerging need for “social distancing”, in the span of weeks, schools around the world had to find ways to carry out most of their activities online. Amidst this challenging time, the ySKILLS project conducted interviews with 34 experts from the educational field and the labour market from six European countries (Estonia, Finland, Germany, Italy, Poland and Portugal). In this blog post, Verónica Donoso and Nike Retzmann summarise the experts’ views about how the pandemic is affecting children’s engagement with digital technologies and they voiced their concerns about increasing inequalities and decreasing well-being.
