The education of China’s ethnic minorities has made extraordinary progress in recent years as a result of an enhanced information infrastructure, universalized intelligent education, updated teaching concepts, and intensified education reform. The Work Plans for Building Intelligent Education Pilot Areas and Experimental Schools in Minority Regions announced in 2020 by the Ethnic Education Development Center of China’s Ministry of Education emphasized the necessity of establishing a cloud platform for minority education utilizing fifth-generation telecommunication technology, artificial intelligence, big data, and other information technologies. This article looked at the results of developing digital education in minority areas and pointed out its flaws and problems in order to help ethnic digital education grow in a way that is sustainable.
