Abstract

The presented article explores the integration of digital education into the concept of sustainable societal development and education relation to the formation of the "information society" and "knowledge society" processes. The term "knowledge society" is defined, emphasizing its relevance in the 2020s context. The article demonstrates that the spread of digital education is a manifestation of the "digital turn," driven by the transformation of information into a primary resource that sustains societal activities. The temporal boundaries of this phenomenon are also outlined, emphasizing that the "digital turn" represents both a quantitative and qualitative expression of the ongoing development of technologies. The main challenges associated with implementing the "digital turn" are identified, impacting the effectiveness of achieving sustainable development goals – a dynamic state of society, characterized by the rational use of resources. The significance of education in ensuring such rationality is elaborated upon. The pivotal moment marking revolutionary changes in the dissemination of digital education is identified as the onset of global quarantine measures in 2019. Digital technologies increases the speed and volume of information exchange. Simultaneously, educational information, as one of the most crucial forms, requires heightened attention in terms of quality and accessibility. The article identifies the main positive and negative manifestations of the "digital turn," critical for the construction of a "knowledge society" and the achievement of "sustainable development" goals. It is demonstrated that the attainment of the "knowledge society" and "sustainable development" states share common conditions associated with the development of digital technologies. Digital education, in particular, plays a crucial role as a condition for building a safe and predictable environment for the evolving of contemporary individual. Alongside global trends in digital education, specific features within the educational environment of Ukraine are addressed.
