During the last ten years the development of computer and Internet services has significantly changed educational environment. The use of electronic devices, mobile applications, as well as social networks and various types of online learning services is increasing. On the one hand, they open up new educational opportunities for a large number of learners. On the other hand, varying degree of access to ICT and differences in the use of digital environment are associated with socioeconomic inequality and can serve as a means of its reproduction.
Our Summer School will focus on the following key aspects:
· Students’ digital literacy, digital behavior and social inequality;
· Teachers' digital literacy and the perception of the use of ICT and digital resources in education;
· The use of ICT (laptops, mobile phones, VR, etc.), digital technologies (electronic textbooks, etc.), online resources and MOOCs in education and their effects on performance for students of different social groups;
· Policies that aim to support the use of digital resources to decrease educational inequality and the effectiveness of these policies.
