The guest editors and the ASLERD Association are proud to invite and
welcome contributions from researchers and practitioners that foster the
development of smart learning ecosystems and smart education to help
learning places to recover their central role in the education of future
citizens, and in the promotion of social innovation and territorial
development. We welcome contributions from people that fight to reify
the above vision and to achieve a better learning for a better world as
a contribution to the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable
Development Goals(SDGs). This is a particularly pertinent moment of
uncertainty due to the COVID-19 pandemic that still prevails with an
enormous, still unmeasurable impact, on learning ecosystems. Papers that
report on work that nurtures a post-pandemic view and strategy for a
better learning world are specially welcome.

This special issue is supported by the Association for Smart Learning
Ecosystems and Regional Development (ASLERD) and welcome the submission
of substantially extended version of the papers presented at SLERD 2020.
(video recording of SLERD2020 presentations and of the open debate are
available though the ASLERD Youtube channel:
