Podcast with Deepak Mehta

On creativity during corona, giving kids credit & understanding what they're doing online. 

THE EPISODE

Every time I talk to Deepak Mehta I get more optimistic about the future. You can call him a lot of things: tech enthusiast, maker, hacker, ecosystem builder or one of the main inspirators behind TEDxAntwerp.

Deepak talks about creativity during crises, and how digital is changing 'education' for the better. Together, we also dig a bit deeper into the debate around smartphone & kids. Deepak believes giving credit & 'agency' to our kids might be actually a way for them to better navigate the online dangers & challenges themselves.

A SHORT PREVIEW

“When the retreat is ending and I give them back their phones, all of them react: "I'm not sure I want it back." It happens many times because they are so much enjoying this feeling of disconnection that they want to keep it longer.
