    Numerous and ingenious ICT devices and systems are being applied at various locations across the educational landscape, often with interesting consequences. Such piecemeal, add-on approaches are, however, increasingly inadequate and progressively inappropriate. Given that digitisation has profoundly transformed both the objectives of education and the means of their achievement, the requirement from now onwards is for an all-embracing and visionary strategy matching and embodying our entirely altered environment. Essentially, humanely-inspired and digitally-comfortable educational planners should creatively ponder upon how best entirely to re-structure the whole of education in order to serve and help shape our utterly-transformed and ever-evolving world. Education planning should no longer focus on formal education only, but also on informal learning. By such means may much more equitable, ethical, enjoyable (and far less economics-bound, test-oriented, world-of-work-dominated) systems be created. Specifically, educational planning now means ‘educational planning founded upon digitisation for the Digital Age’. This paper explores the implications of this ground-breaking reality.
