There are two new journals in our field that involve the emerging notion of smart educational technologies. Earlier this year, the Smart Learning Institute at Beijing Normal University sponsored the Smart Education Conference. Related efforts in recent years involving adaptive technologies and personalized learning are also noteworthy. Given such interest in this area, it seems reasonable to consider what constitutes a smart learning environment or a smart educational technology. It seems reasonable to see what is being done, what issues are emerging, and what successes in this area are likely to occur in the next few years. Rather than engage in exaggerated claims and predict dramatic transformation of learning and instruction, the emphasis will on the basiss for a preliminary conceptual framework, the potential, and the challenges confronting significant and sustained progress.
