Risks of the digital and computer environment in education

Digital school dropout, isolation, attention deficit disorder... the Covid-19 crisis has demonstrated the limits of the digital world. At the Centre de Recherche en Éducation de Nantes (CREN) and the Laboratoire d'Informatique de l'Université du Mans (LIUM), Florent Carlier and Sébastien George, both teacher-researchers in computer science, and their teams are studying the reactions, traces and behaviors of pupils and students in computer environments. Their goal is to help teachers to improve pedagogical activities and thus limit the risks linked to digital technology and distance.

Artificial intelligence, risks and automatic speech transcription
