Inclusive Plug Episode 4: Is inclusive digitalization possible in the post-COVID-19 age?

The pandemic has quickened the pace of digitalization. To effectively tap into the opportunities, it’s important to consider the needs and capacities of the most vulnerable in society. Also, digitalization is about much more than economic and social issues—it’s also a fundamental human right issue concerning the right to privacy, expression and movement. Young people, women and other vulnerable groups are a target group of the regional programme RECONOMY—so, in this episode we’ll talk about how can benefits of digitalization of education be more inclusive to the more often “left behind”? What can the Western Balkan countries learn from Estonia? And is blended learning the future? How is vocational education and training affected?
