Educational technology, online learning and Open Science are key pillars in modern academic and professional settings. From informal learning and nonformal learning, thanks to thousands of educational sources on the internet, such as videos, wikis, MOOCs, and other open educational resources, to a variety of tools, software applications, and technological improvements, such as blockchain, cloud computing, immersive scenarios, serious games, etc., education is now far more enhanced than ever before. The student and the teacher are more connected to each other, they have more resources and services to work with, and they can have a wider impact with a more reasonable workload thanks to never-ending networks.
In this context, global education becomes a fourth pillar. The variety of languages, cultures, and ways of expression; resources, technology access, and licensing formats; methodologies, strategies, academic programs, and actions plans: All of these widen the learning and teaching possibilities, across the world, in endless ways.
This Special Issue encourages addressing intercultural ways in which technology enhances learning, teaching, and Open Science. In doing so, learners, teachers and academic managers are better supported to achieve new competences, increase their performance, and reach new milestones, which would otherwise be difficult or impossible to achieve, without that very technology.
