The report provides insights into children’s and families’ digital practices during the first lockdown caused by the Covid pandemic. Thanks to the richness of the qualitative dataset, some lessons learned arise from which researchers draw recommendations for policymakers regarding parents’ and children’s perspective on remote schooling. Parents can also find inspiring elements for parenting in Covid times. (…) The Croatian qualitative research illustrated in this report is a decisive piece of work in the European landscape described by the KiDiCoTi project.
