It is unquestionable that technology is a useful tool to enhance the
learning process and during the last ICALT conferences significant advances have been
presented in this sense. Besides the usual topics of the conference, this edition of
the conference aims to explore the role of learning technologies to step forward in the
transformation from the information society to a knowledge society where everybody
(independently of race, sex, abilities, capabilities, …) can be benefit from technologies
to enhance her learning process. This open a world of opportunities for analysing the use of
technology in inclusive learning environments that take into account the characteristics and
expectations of different kinds of users and different kinds of learning experiences, whether
formal or informal, individual or cooperative, life-long or short term…
