Abstract

Two decades ago, no one had heard about Google, Facebook, YouTube, or Wikipedia. Today they are the most used digital tools on the planet. In this swiftly mutating world, digital technology exerts a tremendous influence on the economic, social, and cultural evolution of all societies. As new forms of technology continue to pervade our lives and captivate our youth, schools have no choice but to make room for them. At the same time, and in line with 21st century visions, countries expect their teachers and students to behave as informed and responsible digital citizens.

Keywords: Artificial intelligence, education, teachers, schools
