We live in a digital world in an information age, which influences all fields.

Within the education field, pedagogy, instruction, content distribution, administration, and philosophy are all changing in response to digitisation. These changes will likely continue and will intersect with even more change brought about by globalisation.

A key feature of digital education, one of the crucial trends for future education, is the use of digital tools and technology in instructional practice.

Digital education is concerned with how teachers, schools, and administrators can harness the power of technology to empower learners.
