Learning ecosystems are getting smarter and play a central role in 
regional development and social innovation. “Smart,” thus, are not 
simply technology-enhanced learning ecosystems but, rather, learning 
ecosystems that promote the multidimensional well-being of all players 
of learning processes (i.e., students, professors, administrative 
personnel and technicians, territorial stakeholders, and, for the 
schools, parents) and that contribute to the increase of the social 
capital of a “region,” also thanks to the mediation of the technologies. 
Elicited work should inform the understanding of learning ecosystems and 
accompanying design for “smartness,” foster the development of policies 
and action plans, or support technological impact.
This special issue is supported by the Association for Smart Learning 
Ecosystems and Regional Development (ASLERD <>).

*Topics of Interest*

Topics of interest include research papers that understand, conceive, 
and promote innovative human-centric design and development methods, 
education/training practices, informal social learning, and citizen 
involvement. Sub-topics can be grouped into (i) places for learning, 
(ii) learning technologies, and (iii) human-centered design.

/*Human-centered design*/
• frameworks, literacies (data, design, digital, etc.), learning through 
design, methodological advances (HCD, participatory design, action 
research, etc.)
• outreach: community involvement, designing dissemination

• visions of institutional learning, interplay of formal and informal 
learning, novel educational models, mixed educational approaches, 
cultural influences, (dis-)continuity of time, technology, places, 
spaces, and processes

• topics on data (management): open, smart, interoperable, safety, 
security, privacy, trustworthiness, veracity and quality assurance, 
mining, ubiquitous, open access, sharing, wearables, geo-localization, 
context awareness and adaptation, monitoring and benchmarking of 
smartness on different levels (personal, organization, region)
• case studies of the technologies above as well as games, VR, and IoT

/*Submission guidelines and procedure*/
All submissions (abstracts and later final manuscripts) must be original 
and may not be under review by another publication.
The manuscripts should be submitted either in .doc or in .rtf format.
All papers will be blindly peer-reviewed by at least two reviewers.
Authors are invited to submit 8-20 pages paper (including authors' 
information, abstract, all tables, figures, references, etc.).
The paper should be written according to the IxD&A authors' guidelines
