Expert Statement

I have been working for a number of years on the consequences of digitalisation for the civic integration of newly arrived migrants. This was partly financed by the EU Institute for Prospective Technological Studies. More recently I have moved my attention to the gains and losses that learners and teachers experience in moving from paper based learning means to scree and phone based learning means. Please note that this line of research of mine, called gains and losses is very much in development still.

As I said the most recent research line of mine called ‘Gains and Losses’ is in development although it has been presented at a couple of conferences. Previous work done that could be relevant to the COVID-led present needs of education could be the following:

as well as the study carried out in 2010, yet again very much relevant in that it uncovers the obstacles that learners may find in learning a target language via digital platforms:
