The rapid development of computer technology today has implications for high quality educational services and resources. Meanwhile, this era of Smart Education (SE) has given a new picture that the openness and sharing of global knowledge become a top priority for the advancement of education, especially in Digital Eco-Literacy (DEL) learning. The study aims to understand in depth the role of Smart Education (SE) in supporting the development of Digital Eco-Literacy (DEL). The research method used is a qualitative technique with a review paper approach. The findings show that SE will be the key to effectively and efficiently developing DEL Learning. A positive impact on improving student achievement and the ability to understand various environmental problems with a more dynamic and innovative perspective should be considered.
