Abstract


Global technological trends affect broad spectrum of areas in our life, and through the implementation of particular tools, they are affecting the development of educational levels in particular countries and also educational process itself. This study is aimed at the comparison and revealing of the effect of digitalization and e-skills on the level of education in 20 selected EU member countries by using Factor Analysis and Cluster Analysis. As a result, we consider four clusters of countries with similar characteristics in terms of education, digital literacy and public funding and expenditure on development of ICT and education. Population e-skills demonstrated almost identical levels. The implementation of technological trends into the educational process does not depend only on its positive effects on the educational level, but also on the real opportunity to use these modern tools within the educational process. This is determined by a number of socio-economic, political and cultural aspects. Their detailed examination requires the access to more structured data. Those conditions also create a platform for a subsequent research.
