to study models of comprehension

Deadline for paper submission: *February 1, 2019*

*SLERD 2019* includes also
the third  edition of the
*Student Design Contest**

*and will host mostly on *May 21*, few *selected special tracks and 
(only a limited number of places will be available)
• Up2U special event
• Workshop on Design for educational places and cities
• Workshop on Service design for social innovation
• Workshop on Design of high quality Alternation (ASL) processes to 
develop transversal competences

*SLERD 2019* is organized by /ASLERD/ 
<> in collaboration with/ITD-CNR, 
Quasar Design University, ISIA Roma/ and the /University of Rome Tor 
Vergata SPFS Dept./

*SLERD 2019* is proud to invite and welcome contributions from 
researchers and practitioners that in their daily activity strive to put 
in place a people in place centered approach and foster the development 
of smart learning ecosystem where technologies are supportive of the 
human wellbeing and help learning places in recovering the central role 
in the education of future citizens, in the design and achievement of 
social innovation and territorial development. We welcome contributions 
from people that fight to reify the above vision as a contribution to 
the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 
<> to 
achieve, in particular, a better learning for a better world 

/*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: in short a design literacy from which to make emerge projects and 
processes capable to reify them, all aimed at achieving a people 
centered smart education, social innovation and territorial development.
