This book introduces readers to the current status of smart learning in China by providing extensive and accurate data from different contexts of smart learning. In particular, it investigates smart learning in smart cities, which extends the concept of smart learning to cover both formal and informal learning, and to support life-long learning. With digital technologies and the Internet becoming increasingly integrated into learning, the demand for smart learning has grown steadily, especially in smart city scenarios. As the need for life-long learning is on the rise, smart learning environments in cities should be equipped to meet people’s demands. Smart learning/education is also one of the key applications of smart cities. Though the book’s content mainly focuses on the educational technology field, research in cities and industries is also included. This book offers a valuable resource for graduate students in educational technology, smart learning environment and smart city researchers, cooperative university managers, and all others who are interested in smart learning industries.

The promise of competitiveness and economic growth in so-called smart cities is widely advertised in Europe and the US. The promise is focussed on global talent and knowledge economies and not on learning and innovation. But to really achieve smart cities – that is to create the conditions of continuous learning and innovation – this book argues that there is a need to understand what is below the surface and to examine the mechanisms which affect the way cities learn and then connect together. This book draws on quantitative and qualitative data with concrete case studies to show how networks already operating in cities are used to foster and strengthen connections in order to achieve breakthroughs in learning and innovation. Going beyond smart cities means understanding how cities construct, convert and manipulate relationships that grow in urban environments. Cities discussed in this book – Amman, Barcelona, Bilbao, Charlotte,Curitiba, Juarez, Portland, Seattle and Turin – illuminate a blind spot in the literature. Each of these cities has achieved important transformations, and learning has played a key role, one that has been largely ignored in academic circles and practice concerning competitiveness and innovation.

Cut through the hype surrounding Smart Cities. This book looks at the facts on the ground and realities, coming to a more adequate understanding of where technology can and cannot help in a city context, specifically pulling on insights gained from smart city initiatives in New York, Chicago, Amsterdam and Copenhagen. Currently, the concept of Smart Cities is rightfully touted as a transformative power in our lives. The use of Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence, Big Data and Blockchain are some of the most hyped technologies that promise to bring about significant changes to how we live and manage our cities. While some isolated solutions have been implemented with great success and impact, the full potential of smart cities have so far not been realized. Practical realities often interfere, bringing initiatives to a screeching halt or stopping them before they even start. By better understanding the practical realities of a city we may be able to better make use of technology to make smarter cities. To that end end, this book provides a number of practical guidelines on how to make cities smarter with the aid of technology. You'll also dive into the practical understanding of managing and securing thousands, possibly millions, of devices and the accompanying data. Demystifying Smart Cities evaluates how technology can behave in a more intelligent way and how producing novel solutions can pose problems of their own. What You'll Learn Practical issues and challenges of managing thousands and millions of IoT devices in a city The different types of city data and how to manage and secure it The possibilities of utilizing AI into a city (and how it differs from working with the private sector) Examples of how to make cities smarter with technology Who This Book Is For Primarily for those already familiar with the hype of smart city technologies but not the details of its implementation, along with technologists interested in learning how city government works when integrating technology. Also, people working for smart city vendors, especially sales people and product managers who need to understand their target market.

This publication includes the Proceedings of the PLE Conference 2013. The Conference on Personal Learning Environments is now an established annual international, scientific event and a reference point for the current state of the art in research and development in Personal Learning Environments (PLE). The PLE Conference creates a space for researchers and practitioners to share concepts, case studies and research related to the design, development and implementation of Personal Learning Environments in diverse educational contexts including formal and informal education. The 4th PLE Conference in 2013 took place at Beuth University of Applied Sciences in Berlin, Germany together with a parallel event at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia. The PLE Conference 2013 received 75 submissions and welcomed almost 100 delegates from Europe, Asia, Australasia, North and South America and Africa.The papers included in the Proceedings provide rich and valuable theoretical and empirical insights into Personal Learning Environments. Personal Learning Environments (PLE) is an approach in Technology-Enhanced Learning (TEL) based on the principles of learner autonomy, ownership and empowerment. PLEs are integrated, individual environments for learning which include specific technologies, methods, tools, contents, communities and services constituting complex learning infrastructures, enhancing new educational practices and at the same time emerging from these new practices. This represents a shift away from the traditional model of technology-enhanced learning based on knowledge transfer towards a model based on knowledge construction and sharing.
