About this episode

Research investigating the adoption of new technologies can help to unveil global trends in learning and education. Researchers at Michigan State University, University of Illinois Urbana Champaign, Texas State University and Purdue University have recently carried out a study investigating the use of devices by people in different parts of the world and with various literacy levels to access YouTube videos between 2013 and 2018. Their analyses identified key historical moments when the use of smartphones for online learning surpassed that of other information and communication technologies.
