Digital Governance of Education explores the multiple ways in which digital technologies are changing the experience of education. With much contemporary education practice either taking place or being documented digitally, a huge amount of data is constantly being collected and analysed to give sophisticated and up-to-date accounts of education practice in contemporary societies. Such ‘datafication’ of education, mediated through technology, gives rise to what the author defines as ‘digital governance’ of education – a transnational assemblage of people, technologies and policies that increasingly affects how national education systems are organized and managed.
