Digital transformation of education and science: responses to modern challenges

Keywords: digital technologies of education, educational environment, research activities, innovative education, e-Learning.


The relevance of the study is due to the rapid digitalization and computerization of both the educational process and research activities. New challenges are prompting the creation of a new digital educational environment. Relying on the latest digital technologies, scientific paradigms are changing towards creating interdisciplinary areas of research. The article aims to analyze the main trends of digital transformation of the educational and scientific sphere. The article is based on the use of theoretical pedagogical research methods: analysis, synthesis, induction, and deduction. Content analysis of scientific literature showed that researchers do not pay enough attention to the analysis of tools for implementing the elements of digitalization in the educational and research processes. The results of the study were actualization of the understanding of the content and essence of the digitalization of the educational process, coverage of the competence approach to the implementation of digitalization, analysis of the formation of new interdisciplinary areas of research work. Practical significance: the creation of recommendations on the implementation of digital competence acquisition tools for effective adaptation to the new digital educational environment in Ukraine and the disclosure of its additional benefits. In conclusion, it is noted that this study opens a broad discussion on the prospects for changing both educational and scientific paradigms in Ukraine and the world.
