Abstract

The article is dedicated to digital learning tools application as a means of readapting Ukrainian veterans to social life. The aim of the article is to investigate the importance of digital learning tools as a means of readapting Ukrainian veterans to social life and to provide recommendations for their application in the educational process. References on veterans’ adaptation, applying digital tools in education have been analysed. The results of a survey conducted by the authors among Ukrainian veterans and military personnel within the framework of the UK-Ukraine twinning grants scheme (Project UUT06 "Digitisation as a means of improving accessibility of Higher Education to Ukrainian veterans") have shown that the veterans and military personnel are ready to get a new education, but have rather low level of digital learning tools awareness. The authors note that digital learning tools can be beneficial in the process of the veterans’ readaptation to social life.
