Welcome to the CreditEd Network blog
CreditEd is an informal network for researchers and practitioners interested in critical perspectives in education and technology.
The aim for founding the network was to connect and network researchers and practitioners in Finland and abroad to share research and thoughts on ed-tech, digitalization and datafication. This blog aims to document those endeavors.

“I found a place of sanctuary in “theorizing,” in making sense out of what was happening. I found a place where I could imagine possible futures, a place where life could be lived differently.”
