School education must respond to the needs and desires of today's children, because they were born into a rapidly evolving digital age. Electronic resources, online content and virtual educational offer the latest and diverse information and opportunities for continuing education. The present article aims to identify the opinions of teachers and parents on the efficiency of using digital resources on teaching activities in primary education and the possibility of increasing its efficiency, as well as increasing the involvement of all students in their own learning. The research was conducted on a sample of 243 people, divided into several categories of subjects: 89 teachers, 98 parents and 56 primary school students from several schools in Prahova County, Romania. The following methods and techniques were used to collect the data underlying this research: the experiment performed on a group of preparatory pupils, the questionnaire-based survey and the interview with primary school teachers and parents.
