Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We would like to take part in the educational challenge in which we find ourselves, shaping the learning of the future. To do so, we must know and interpret the advantages and disadvantages that the incorporation of technologies is having in learning contexts. We cannot forget that it is very important to continue identifying and working on the development of new educational practices that will help us to solve the challenge we face as education professionals. The digital transformation (DT) has caused interaction and learning processes to change substantially, in terms of new learning environments, new research keys, learning for all, and artificial intelligence, which support the development of training processes, with some key areas making contributions on the new digital ecosystems and their impact, including an open, adaptive, and distributed socio-technical system with properties of self-organisation, scalability and sustainability inspired by natural ecosystems. Connected digital ecosystems are needed to build connections, drive transformation, and improve student outcomes. We have been working together on participation architecture for decades, and as is the aim of this work, we want to contribute to the construction of new content and be active agents in the design and development processes.

This Special Issue will offer an updated description of the effects of the learning environment on sustainable organisations and institutions, examine new intelligent learning, present ideas that invite the understanding of the moment we are immersed in, reflect, bring new approaches, and make new learning scenarios visible. The articles in this work will be committed to scientific rigour, the innovation processes carried out, and providing an accurate account of the current climate in the existing literature.

This Special Issue will focus on (but not be limited to) the following topics:

  • Universal learning design;
  • New intelligent learning systems;
  • Digital ecosystems;
  • Architecture of participation;
  • Intelligent classrooms;
  • Innovative learning space;
  • Artificial intelligence;
  • Teacher training;
  • Digital competence.
