Digital Strategies in Education Across Nordic Countries


Digitalization has already played an important role in education when COVID-19 forced the closing of school buildings and the digitalization of education to varying degrees around the world. COVID-19 started an unprecedented experiment in school systems and the ongoing digital transformation was suddenly accelerated. This situation initiated the creation of new challenges and opportunities for users such as teachers, pupils, administrators, but also creators of national strategies and action plans in education. The paper is specifically focused on the comparison of current government strategic documents dealing with the National Strategies for School System Digitalization within selected Member States of the European Union (EU). This study discusses and analyses two interrelated issues: first, the current trends in the development of digitalization across the Nordic EU countries regarding the development of digital transformation, and second, related initiatives described in selected National Strategies for Digitalization in Education. The research objectives are specified in the summarizing chapter, based on which the methodology for comparing the documents is described. The main objective of the study is to analyse the Swedish National Digitalization Strategy for the School System, the Danish National Strategy for Digitalization and the Finnish Artificial Intelligence Programme. A sub-objective is to identify the interests of these Nordic countries in digital innovation in education. The results of the study show that the digital strategy in education across the Nordic EU countries is strongly linked to the 21st century education, thus contributing to various debates on technologies, development of digital literacy and progress in education.
