The growth and development of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) have a multidimensional impact on every sector of society. ICT has changed how we communicate with each other, how we find needed information, work, conduct business, interact with government agencies, and how we manage our social lives (Roztocki, Soja & Weistroffer (2019). The education sector is also exploring information technology for making teaching-learning attractive and useful (Sharma and Sharma, 2015) and the trend of online and digital education emerged as the most important area of study. Within years, the literature related to online and digital education and research studies has immensely flourished not only in technology education but in humanities and social sciences. Now a day, it becomes a more emerging area of concern. The objectives of the study were to provide a comprehensive picture of the research findings related to online and digital education and to suggest some relevant research gaps that can be worth exploring in the future. The study was based on the existing literature on online and digital education and discussed narratively. The study revealed that the right attitude and intensive training toward using technology to teach online is very essential. Integrating online learning systems within the existing curriculum and perceived effectiveness based on school locality are needed to be considered.It was also observed that teachers are facing difficulties in conducting online classes due to a lack of proper training and development for online classes. Technical issues are the major problem for the effectiveness of online classes.The NEP 2020 is an opportunity to reflect and change. It is time for action. If we fail to act today, tomorrow we may not be there to act.
Key words:Information and Communication Technology, online and digital education, NEP 2020, right attitude and intensive training, effectiveness.
