The International Journal of Smart Education and Urban Society (IJSEUS) presents a platform to discuss ideas, problems, challenges, and solutions for changes in society brought about by technological innovations. Urban society requires smart, innovative, collaborative learning infrastructures that cultivate a learning culture in the context of 21st century education; where learning goes beyond the space and time context and becomes available everywhere by using different smart educational technologies. This brings advantages and challenges for educators at all levels in promoting the knowledge, skills, competencies, and talents of inhabitants; which should be a key strategic objective in modern cities.

This new phenomenon brings educational science in at a new level because there is a need for a new generation of people who can construct their knowledge in multiple dimensions. There should be research on ways that people learn by using smart solutions, which previously had been unexplored as digital. People learn differently and increase their knowledge not only by a social constructivist way of learning, but also the wide range use of smart devices. Use of different smart solutions change the role of teachers and the educational environments, and brings new questions to educational science as the traditional role of the educator as a person who organizes the learning process has diminished. Researchers of the educational field start to use the term “smart education” for this phenomenon to acknowledge that there is new movement in educational science; and that new educational approaches and a new research methodology must be built to ensure development of a new generation for urban society. Simply put, more and more educators and students are looking for new ways to use technological innovations in the teaching and learning process.
