Human Capital for Digital Education
This article is devoted to the role of information and communication technologies (ICT) in forming the human capital that meets the needs of modern world economies. The quality of employees’ education and the ability to use digital and information technologies are closely related to the digital competencies in the qualification requirements of educational employees. The creation of a “smart society” depends on the skills related to using digital ICT in the educational process. The study of the human capital development in education has been based on the indicators suggested by UNESCO in Guide to Measuring Information and Communication Technologies in Education. In order to compare countries with high, medium and low levels of using and mastering ICT, the Final Report Survey of Schools: ICT in Education and the OECD Statistical database have been used.
