Abstract

Government and non-governmental organizations have perceived and embraced digital technologies as a vehicle for change across different sectors in Asian economies and particularly in the developing countries. The use of digital technologies in the K–12 education and higher education sectors offers opportunities for the enhancement of equitable access to quality learning experiences and the development of lifelong learning competencies. For example, massive open online courses (MOOCs) may provide quality education to marginalized members of the community. The adoption of intelligent tutoring systems (ITS) may create personalized learning experiences for each student based on his or her individual abilities, pace and interests. The harnessing of digital game-based learning (DGBL) and gamification may raise motivation levels and enhance student learning engagement and outcomes. Learning analytics (LA) may empower teachers to make data-informed teaching decisions that better support students in achieving the expected learning outcomes of the course or program.
