Education systems around the world face many challenges. Educators, parents and administrators frequently look to ICT for possible solutions but the complexity of most social and technical settings makes it difficult to determine appropriate courses of action. This conference will provide an opportunity to explore how ICT can be used successfully to address some of the significant challenges that are faced by education systems.

Selected papers will be published as a Special Issue in Education and Information Technologies.
