Is Technology stopping or abetting political apathy? Can we beat political apathy with technology?
I think that education should focus on the fundamentals of clean politics and cultivating in children critical that allows them to see through fake authorities and the establishment. There isn't one single thingle that can solve this problem that is incremental & now forms a hard crust on our political systems & societies. Education is one way that needs to be flanked with lots more.

Today politics has negative connotations: a field without accountability; privileged rules made by the its very members; untransparent processes; cash-laden considerations; a medley of people who have become a caste. Politics should rhyme with citizenry & citizenship instead. Anchoring the problem around "apathy" sounds as if it is people's fault that they are apathetic. I don't belmieve that this is the case. I think that the problem lies with the nature of the so-called "democratic" institutions which offer litlle to no openings for the right kind of engagement that makes a difference. Why should they? The status quo from their point of view is so much more comfortable. Such openings have to do with ceding power. And throughout human history, power has never been ceded just like that: because you or I asked for it. It requires that citizens demand, demand and demand. In this area technology remains but a tool which can be used masterfully to facilitate certain aspects of engagement. I don't think it can solve the problem-riddled demo/autocracies of today.
