From fear of ‘Computer Force’ to ‘Digital Inclusion’
2015 (English)Conference paper, Abstract (Refereed)
Popular education is often described as particularly suitable for various projects related to digital inclusion. For example, the popular education guiding principle: "free and voluntary” has been described as an important prerequisite for effectively digitizing Sweden. From this we can be (mis)led to understand that the mission of public education to promote the digital citizen is a new quest (or at least beginning in the early 2000s). However, popular education has played a central role in the digitization of citizens for over 40 years now. This genealogy aims to shed light on the role of popular education in the history of digitalization.
