This research discusses the necessity for change in the domestic digital cultural heritage education. In following, this research analyzes definition and categories of digital cultural heritage education alongside with several case studies of global institutions and their characteristics. Throughout the analysis, this research suggests a direction of domestic digital cultural heriage which has limitations. Currently domestic use of digital cultural heritage education is currently limited to applying digital technology. Analysing literature review and case studies, this research found that digital cultural heritage education can make learners be mature in perspective of historical thinking and digital literacy simultaneously. In other words, digital cultural heritage education should not aim at pursuing education via digital platform simply, but rather fundamental cultural heritage education based on understanding of digital technology and future trend of education such as informal learning. Throughout the analysis of current cases and suggestion for future direction, the research aims at being a fundamental study of digital cultural heritage.
