Sustainability is an urgent development task in current societies. Higher education institutions should design curricular itineraries that allow the experiential study of real socioenvironmental problems, in order to foster the evaluation of information from the perspective of sustainability. Higher Education institutions should cultivate students with an open and flexible mind, able to identify truthful arguments and consider all key factors before making decisions regarding sustainability and economic viability.
Analyzing 21st century students, we find that technology is part of their lives; they live in a digital context that includes social networks, microblogging services, and instant messaging services, among others, which have changed their habits of socialization, consumption, and communication. In this context, the integration of current digital technologies in Higher Education has become an opportunity and a challenge for educators who, as learning enablers, must provide their graduates with the appropriate technological tools.
This Special Issue of Sustainability explores innovative approaches and developments in higher education, fostering theoretical and empirical research on teaching methodologies that guide students towards the creation of their own knowledge using the set of information and communication technology resources currently available. Topics may include but are not limited to:
- Higher education
- Critical thinking
- Business game
- Teaching/learning strategies
- ICT experience
