collaboration with /ASLERD/ <>/./

*SLERD 2020* is 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 achievea better learning for a better 
a contribution to theUnited Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable 
Development Goals 

/*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.
*//*Topics of interests*/

can be grouped under three big themes:

/*• places for smart education


  * future of institutional learning
  * interplay between formal and informal learning
  * new educational models and settings
  * continuity-discontinuity of time, technology, place/space, process
    in learning
  * role of and case studies of games and gamification in education
  * dual education and other alternate scheme approaches
  * monitoring and benchmarking of smartness (individual, institution,
    city, region)

/*• people in place centered design for smart education*/

  * general frameworks and methodological advancement
  * design, data and other relevant literacies
  * literacies, skill and competences of smart citizens
  * communities and co-design in smart learning
