<br>*SLERD 2020* is proud to invite and welcome contributions from 
<br>researchers and practitioners that foster the development of/smart 
<br>learning ecosystems/and/smart education/to help/learning places/to 
<br>recover their central role in the/education of future citizens/, and in 
<br>the promotionof /social innovation/and/territorial development/. We 
<br>welcome contributions from people that fight to reify the above vision

<br>Development Goals 
<br>/*Short Intro*/
<br>/Smart /referred to /learning ecosystems,/ in ASLERD and SLERD contexts, 
<br>does not simply means technology enhanced. The smartness is a more 
<br>complex multilayered construct related to the wellbeing of the players 
<br>operating in the ecosystems and is affected by the improvement of any 
<br>relevant aspects of the learning processes and ecosystem functioning, 
<br>especially if connected with territorial development and social innovation.
<br>Technologies are mediators. Hopefully they should be included but they 
<br>are not a sine qua non.
<br>The achievement of the learning ecosystems smartness is a process that 
<br>need a long term vision, multidisciplinary competences, an attitude to 
<br>understand people and contexts and to mediate point of views, a dynamic 
<br>resilience to keep on track to achieve, step by step, the foreseen goals.
