Abstract
One of the fundamental components of the United Nations’ sustainable development 2030 agenda is quality education. It aims to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education for all. Digital technologies have emerged as an essential tool to achieve this goal. These technologies are simple to detect emissions sources, prevent additional damage through improved energy efficiency and lower-carbon alternatives to fossil fuels, and even remove surplus greenhouse gases from the environment. Digital technologies strive to decrease or eliminate pollution and waste while increasing production and efficiency. These technologies have shown a powerful impact on the education system. The recent COVID-19 Pandemic has further institutionalised the applications of digital technologies in education. These digital technologies have made a paradigm shift in the entire education system. It is not only a knowledge provider but also a co-creator of information, a mentor, and an assessor. Technological improvements in education have made life easier for students. Instead of using pen and paper, students nowadays use various software and tools to create presentations and projects. When compared to a stack of notebooks, an iPad is relatively light. When opposed to a weighty book, surfing an E-book is easier. These methods aid in increasing interest in research. This paper is brief about the need for digital technologies in education and discusses major applications and challenges in education.

Based on a previous discussion from the "Digital Literacy and Cultural Exchange" Group, Abril Reyes posed this question:
As an artist, I often think about whether or not I should make this hobby of mine into a career. On one hand it’d be awesome to make money from the thing I love most! But on the other hand, I’m very aware that the art industry isn’t the same as just being a hobbyist, and artists usually aren’t paid a lot. What could be a good way to start making money off of my creative endeavors (art, music, writing, etc.), and, most importantly, should I pursue art as a career or should it stay a side/part-time job?

If you’re willing to ditch your device for a bit, you could win a sweet prize. The New York-based company Siggi’s Dairy, known for its Icelandic-style yogurt, is offering $10,000 to people who can stay away from their smartphones for an entire month.

A gigantic trove of passwords has been released by bad actors, and there's a chance that yours is on there.⁠

According to Troy Hunt, the man behind the breach notification site "Have I Been Pwned" — which allows users to look up your email and see if and where your passwords and other user information have been compromised — it's one of the largest collections of breached data he's ever seen appear online.⁠

The cache of files, dubbed "Naz.API," contains more than 71 million email addresses and 100 million passwords. Thus far, more than 400,000 Have I Been Pwned (HIBP) subscribers have been impacted.⁠

The researcher said in his blog post that more than 65 percent of the email addresses in the breach had already been seen before in other HIBP datasets. This suggests, Hunt explained, that although a majority of the stolen data has already been floating around, over a third of it appears to be newly harvested.⁠

"When a third of the email addresses have never been seen before, that's statistically significant," he wrote. "This isn't just the usual collection of repurposed lists wrapped up
with a brand-new bow on it and passed off as the next big thing; it's a significant volume of new data."⁠
