Recent technological developments have brought about innovations in many fields, such as education, health, economy, and finance. One of these innovations is the concept of digital transformation, which changes the way businesses, institutions, and organizations do business. The concept of digital transformation began with the Fourth Industrial Revolution and brought new technologies to it. The emergence of digital technologies has revolutionized various aspects of society, including education. Digital transformation has emerged as a powerful catalyst that reshapes traditional educational practices and offers new opportunities for teaching and learning. In particular, with the Covid-19 pandemic affecting the whole world, online education has become very important, and all educational institutions have started to integrate their systems into this change. In addition, with the philosophy of lifelong learning, it has become very easy to access training on digital platforms. In line with this information, this study aims to reveal the developments in the historical process of digital transformation and education between 2000 and 2023 in the Web of Science database and to carry out bibliometric analysis by scanning the articles and books published to determine the most studied topics in the field. To achieve the aim of the study, the keywords “digital transformation and education” were scanned. As a result of this search, 2,739 publications were published. These publications were analyzed according to year, research area, country-based distribution, subject distribution, and the most used keywords. As a result of the research, when the research areas of the articles are examined, it is seen that the most studied area is "Education and educational research" and "business". This situation can be said that digital transformation is a very remarkable subject in the field of education and business. When we look at the distribution according to years, it is clear that the greatest acceleration occurred in the last five years. This shows that digital transformation has been increasingly emphasized in recent years. In terms of countries, the subject is studied more in countries such as Germany, Spain, the United States, and Russia.
