Lecture | March 14 | 12-1 p.m. | 201 Moses Hall
Jeppe Bundsgaard, Professor of Education, Aarhus University, Copenhagen; Veronica Salovaara, Doctoral Student in Sociology, University of Helsinki
Denmark is among the countries with most widespread use of computers in K-9, with positive attitudes both from teachers and politicians toward the use of computers. Jeppe Bundsgaard will discuss the Danish situation, including the challenges that (still) exist.
Veronica Salovaara, who has been working in different comparative European and Nordic research projects, analyzes how inequality is reproduced in the Finnish education system. She will specifically focus on the transition phase from basic education to upper secondary education.
