A digital learner utilises digital technologies and resources to acquire knowledge and skills. Digital learning includes online courses, e-books, educational apps, interactive multimedia, virtual classrooms, and many more as the digital world expands. Digital learners often leverage the internet and digital devices like computers, tablets, and smartphones to access educational content anytime and anywhere. Digital learning can be self-directed learning or participating in structured online courses. Digital learning has now become more common inside the classroom.

Should Digital learning be encouraged in primary schools?

Change can be difficult, especially when we have been accustomed to a particular way of doing things for such a long time. Change, however, is ultimately inevitable. There was a time when we would have never believed we would have a whole realm of information at the touch of a button, but now we have the internet. There was a time when we believed that the only way to learn was through reading and studying physical books. There are many benefits to why digital learning should be encouraged in primary schools. Here are our top reasons;

  • Access to information - Digital learning provides large amounts of information and resources that can enhance primary education. It can expose students to diverse perspectives, cultures, and knowledge beyond what traditional textbooks may offer. This is vital for children as we are now living in a much more diverse society.
  • Engagement & Interest - Keeping primary school students engaged and interested in learning can be difficult. One thing we do know is students always seem to have an interest in their digital devices. Interactive educational apps and games can make learning enjoyable and help maintain children's interest in academic subjects.
  • Learning can be personalised - Digital learning can be tailored to individual students' needs. This can help accommodate diverse learning styles and abilities within the classroom.


Everything should be balanced. While digital learning offers many benefits, it's essential to maintain a balance with traditional forms of learning, such as hands-on activities, outdoor exploration, and face-to-face interactions with teachers and peers. Here at Zeeko, we have developed the Zeeko Phoenix Quest 10 that will help you maintain this balance.
