There are ample studies that demonstrate how digital technologies can be used effectively to facilitate teaching and learning in the 21st century. However, the insights gained from these studies often do not result in the uptake of technologies in educational practice (Voogt & Knezek, 2008). It is increasingly agreed upon that the implementation of digital technologies in education needs a systemic approach in which stakeholders at the micro, meso and macro levels of the education system actively interact with each other to align the needs of learners and the potential of technology with requirements of educational systems. EDUsummIT is a global knowledge building community of researchers, practitioners and policy makers working on this alignment with the aim to move education into the digital age. The EDUsummIT community meets every two years to discuss developments concerning technology and education from a systemic perspective with key stakeholders in the field. In this special issue the scholarly contributions of EDUsummIT 2015 are presented.
