The African Union Digital Education Strategy and Implementation Plan, which covers the period 2023-2028, establishes a framework for engagement and acceleration of adoption of digital technologies in alignment with the Continental Education Strategy for Africa (CESA). The Strategy proposes two pillars (digital technology for education and digital literacy and skills for students and staff), nine strategic objectives, and fourteen measures. 

The two pillars are:

  • Digital technology in education – accelerating the adoption of digital technologies for teaching, learning, research, assessment and administration, and
  • Education for digitally empowered citizens / for the digital economy and society – strengthening digital literacy and skills for all, especially for teachers and students.

The Strategy proposes three focus areas, nine strategic objectives and fourteen measures:

The focus areas are:

  1. Digital technology appropriation in education – accelerating the adoption of digital technologies for teaching, learning, research, assessment and administration,
  2. Education in digital technology for digitally empowered citizens/ for the digital economy and society – strengthening digital literacy and skills for all, especially for teachers and students and,
  3. Building the capacity of AU Member states in digital infrastructure (networks and devices) for digital education.

The Strategy proposes AU' and RECs' driven regional forums for mobilising financial and technical resources for digital education.

The Digital Education Strategy and Implementation Plan recognise that key supporting functions at the AU and RECs levels need to change to achieve changes at Member States levels. The successful implementation of the above building blocks of digital education requires prioritisation, coordination, resource mobilisation, knowledge mapping, management and sharing at AU, RECs and Member States levels.
