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:
