OBJECTIVES:

The International Association for Smart Learning Environments establishes a broad interpretation of what might constitute a smart learning environment. A learning environment may be considered smart when it makes use of adaptive technologies or when it is designed to include innovative features and capabilities that improve understanding and performance.  Furthermore, a smart learning environment might include support for collaboration, struggling learners, and motivation. In addition, a flexible learning environment that automatically makes appropriate adjustments to what a learner knows, has mastered, and wants to learn next can be considered smart. 

Specific characteristics of a learning environment that indicate smartness include (a) conversational support for learners, teachers and designers, (b) dynamic updating of student profiles, resources and databases, and (c) automatic [re-]configuration of interfaces to adjust to different learners and learning situations. In short, a smart learning environment has many of the same characteristics that one might find in an experienced and effective human tutor.

Researchers, practitioners, and industry professionals strive to design and develop smart learning environments to reform teaching and learning.  The innovative use of new pedagogical approaches and technologies is leading to the evolution, design and implementation of smart learning environments. With a goal of establishing a direction for future research on smart learning environments, this special issue of Smart Learning Environments seeks academic articles on the current state of smart learning environments, including innovative uses of emerging pedagogical approaches and technologies, and research efforts on smart learning environments.
