/Short Intro/

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