What Kind of Education in Postdigital and Viral Modernity? (Editorial) Klara Skubic Ermenc and Nina Breznikar
Summary: When in 2010 the United Nations (General Assembly 2010) and, five years later, the European Parliament (2015) adopted their resolutions – the former on the right to education in emergency situations, the latter on education for children in emergency situations and protracted crises – probably no one imagined that only a few years later there would arise an emergency affecting the entire planet. Both these documents were written primarily with children and young people during war and natural disasters in mind, but their content is now easily placed in the context of the current Covid-19 pandemic, which resulted in most pupils, secondary-school and university students around the world not having access to schools and universities in the spring of this year. Most of them, especially in the technologically advanced world, had access to (at least limited) distance education, but many did not.
