The ShapingEDU community was established in 2018, with a call to action for a global gathering of Dreamers, Doers and Drivers. This diverse group came together and began to form a new vision for the pathways to the future of a more connected and relevant global approach to education. Emerging from this group was the vision that learning and teaching are inherently human activities, and that even in an increasingly digital and regulated world, all learning should support and enhance our development as people, communities, and societies. 

Over the coming months, we will be releasing the special issue articles in installments that capture specific calls to action for shaping the future of learning in the digital age. This first installment underscores the vitality of humanizing learning, no matter what form it takes. Making learners feel welcome, embracing inclusive practices,and leading with authenticity are core to helping learners thrive. It is in this same spirit that we welcome you, special issue readers, to dream big with us.
