Navigating the Digital Backlash in the Nordics in the aftermath of PISA 2022- an edtech perspective

In Sweden , a pioneer in digitalized education systems worldwide, the aftermath of the pandemic has sparked a contentious debate getting international headlines. Three years later, the nation’s education sector is witnessing a dramatic shift, with policymakers reconsidering their national strategy for digitalization in schools. The debate is intense, featuring calls to limit screen time and return to a “back to basics” approach, often citing Asian schools as an example. Social media platforms like TikTok and digital learning resources are mixed up in the debate, raising evident risks.
