History of Education Society UK Podcast

Mar 31 2021 • 38 mins

For this month's episode we were joined by Carmen Flury and Dr. Rosalía Guerrero to talk about their research into computer education in Europe, as part of the project 'Education and the European Digital Agenda: Switzerland, Germany and Sweden after 1970', based at the University of Zurich. We explore how computer education emerged in Sweden and East Germany, and the conditions that drove and shaped it; the varying roles of the state, civic society, and teachers; the role of women in computer education; and future ideas to explore the history of computer education beyond Europe.
