The 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) stated that all human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights; adding that since they are endowed with reason and conscience they should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood. Sixty years of inventiveness and development have created a digital age accompanied by aspirations of digital freedom. Focusing on the developing world, the paper will explore how education can embrace the digital culture in order to narrow the gap between the ideals of the UDHR and the contemporary realities of life in a diverse but interconnected world.
