EdTech and the birth of platform education: An ethnographic account of a start-up in the age of global education

Project description

How digital learning platforms shape global education

The COVID-19 pandemic forced a closure of schools and universities and resulted in the rapid spread of digital technology. The emergence of digital learning platforms has shaped the organisation of education. However, the disruptive capacity of these platforms to essentially redefine what education values as worth learning is not adequately studied. The EU-funded MORPHOGENESIS project will investigate how the shift towards digital learning platforms contributes to the global disruption of pedagogical valuation processes. The project intends to build a framework that combines concepts with theoretical insights from sociology of education, organisation studies, and the study of regionalisation and globalisation processes, and will develop an extended case ethnography in New York.
