The globalization of culture and education has had a significant impact on how people and communities engage, learn, and prosper. This globalization process facilitates a faster and broader exchange of cultural concepts, values, and customs through digital tools, enhancing global perspectives and increasing the availability of a wide variety of educational materials. Within this framework, cultural and digital literacy is increasingly important as a key skill that individuals need to have in today's world.

Cultural literacy includes awareness and appreciation of cultural diversity, along with the capacity to communicate and engage effectively with people from diverse cultural backgrounds. On the other hand, digital literacy involves the skills to utilize information and communication technology in a professional and ethical manner. Literacy advancement requires an approach that is embedded in the academic syllabus, incorporates the use of digital tools for education, and highlights the teaching of values such as tolerance, empathy, and acceptance of cultural differences.

Strategies to increase cultural and digital literacy consist of: (1) Increasing accessibility and utilization of digital tools in education, (2) Combining project-based learning with international and cross-cultural collaboration, (3) Providing professional development for educators in using inclusive technologies and teaching methods, and (4) Advocate for cultural and virtual exchange programs to provide students with first-hand experience of global cultural diversity. Therefore, cultural and digital literacy not only increases individual capacity to adapt to changes in globalization but also forms a society that is more inclusive and ready to face future challenges.
