Innovative pedagogical methods, different technologies and technological solutions have an immeasurable potential to broaden the range of methods applied in education, to promote learning and to introduce changes in the pedagogical process. Innovations serve as the teachers’ assistant to share the good practice, to develop learning platforms, to change the cooperation forms and to ensure in real life a teaching/learning process that places children youth and adults in the centre. However, the greatest challenge still is – how to help teachers personalize the teaching/learning content according to pupils’/students’ (learners’) individual needs and interests, to ensure a possibility for all learners to improve their potential, to provide equal opportunities for all to support and promote their learning. How to ensure that technological solutions serve not only as a help for the teacher to transform the learning principles but also facilitate pupils’ and students’ participation in the learning process, in searching creative solutions and in elaborating innovations? How to verify that the application of different innovative pedagogical methods and technologies, the change of learning forms is meaningful? What research methods should be used? These are questions to discuss.

This journal special issue will collect the best articles from the ATEE Spring Conference 2017, “Innovations, technologies and research in education,” to discuss use of robotics and other educational technologies in education.
