Healthy and Happy Children

image of Education in the Digital Age

The COVID-19 pandemic was a forceful reminder that education plays an important role in delivering not just academic learning, but also in supporting physical and emotional well-being. Balancing traditional “book learning” with broader social and personal development means new roles for schools and education more generally.

This volume is part of a series that examines the intersections between education, well-being and digital technologies. Complementing the first volume Educating 21st Century Children: Emotional Well-Being in the Digital Age, this volume turns the spotlight on physical health and well-being. It explores the important role of play and risk-taking in learning. It examines the “pursuit of perfection” and the impact on children’s lives, whether it be physical, cognitive or academic. It highlights important efforts countries have made to tackle inequality and protect and empower students in both physical and digital environments. It ends with a look at the pending agenda, underscoring the role of partnerships, policy and protection.



COVID-19 대유행은 학교가 단순히 학업을 위한 장소만이 아님을 상기시켰다. 학교는 공동체의 사회적 구성 요소 중 하나이고, 모든 아동 중 특히 취약 계층의 아동이 학업적, 사회적, 신체적, 그리고 심리적으로 성공할 수 있도록 돕는 역할을 한다. 제각기 다른 이런 요인들을 조화시키는 것은 줄곧 어려운 일이었으며, 특히 이런 요인들과 연계된 목표를 디지털 세계에서 달성하기란 더욱 요원한 일이었다.
