Digital Educational Technologies

Digital technologies have for a long while taken up an important place in the economic development of many countries of the world. Digitalization is the process of wide distribution and implementation of digital technologies into various areas of public life: economy, business, culture, education, etc. Nowadays new digital technologies and innovative business models are implemented in every area of the economic activities, thus contributing to the emergence of digital economy.
Digitalization (digital transformation) of education includes several tasks, such as: improvement of the skills and abilities of professors and teachers in the field of digital technologies, development of material infrastructure, development of online education; implementation of digital programs in the educational process.
In this regard, the study of issues of digitalization (digital transformation) of education and its current problems has become a very important and called for area of scientific research.
Under the said conditions, introduction of new educational technologies, developmental and project-based teaching, business games, visualization, simulation modeling and distance learning present great teaching potential, leading to inspiring the interest in learning and improving assimilation of both theoretical and practical material.
Digitization in education is in fact transition to an electronic learning system with all study materials (textbooks, online lectures), as well as e-journals for knowledge assessment transferred to a digital domain. Generally, students will complete practical sessions, colloquiums, tests and assignments on computers and tablets.
According to Prof. Rose Laсkin, President of the International Artificial Intelligence in Education Society (IAIED), Director of the startup accelerator program EDUCATE, artificial intelligence is a beneficial tool, but it can only be used to solve specific tasks. Society does not need education systems generated by artificial intelligence.
Thus, it can be concluded that introduction of digital educational technologies does not mean complete abolition of traditional forms of education in universities, colleges and schools.
It is necessary and even essential to introduce a mixed format of teaching, which will increase the effectiveness of teaching, develop students' business activity, communication skills, and form a sense of responsibility and self-discipline.
At the same time, information services and technologies included in this format allow for students' continuous self-development, expansion and perfection of their scope of knowledge. In that instant, digital technologies act as a powerful tool of intellectual support in the learning process.
