One of the main tasks of digitalization of education is the integration of modern technologies into the educational process. Today it is almost impossible to imagine education without computers, the Internet, programs and other digital devices. They are actively used not only during lessons, but also in the process of independent work of students.
In addition, the conference will consider the issues of evaluating the effectiveness of digital technologies in education, as well as the experience of implementing digital technologies.
