<br>The guest editors and the ASLERD Association are proud to invite and 
<br>welcome contributions from researchers and practitioners that foster the 
<br>development of smart learning ecosystems and smart education to help 
<br>learning places to recover their central role in the education of future 
<br>citizens, and in the promotion of social innovation and territorial 
<br>development. We welcome contributions from people that fight to reify 
<br>the above vision and to achieve a better learning for a better world as 
<br>a contribution to the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable 
<br>Development Goals(SDGs). This is a particularly pertinent moment of 
<br>uncertainty due to the COVID-19 pandemic that still prevails with an 
<br>enormous, still unmeasurable impact, on learning ecosystems. Papers that 
<br>report on work that nurtures a post-pandemic view and strategy for a 
<br>better learning world are specially welcome.
<br>This special issue is supported by the Association for Smart Learning 
<br>Ecosystems and Regional Development (ASLERD) and welcome the submission 
<br>of substantially extended version of the papers presented at SLERD 2020.
<br>(video recording of SLERD2020 presentations and of the open debate are 
<br>available though the ASLERD Youtube channel:
