Abstract

The recent and ongoing sanitary emergency has brought drastic changes that have involved people all over the world in various ways. On the educational side, there has been a considerable increase in the presence of technology within the learning processes and environments, either real or virtual ones. The latter type has seen a blooming of different offers, new situations, and related issues and opportunities. The interaction between humans and technology has been ongoing, and even more ubiquitous in recent years. To keep it balanced and deploy its full potential for human development and well-being, as individuals and members of society, the human being, with a body, emotions, and interactions with the environment, must be the focus of the reflection by experts in all areas. If we consider these aspects, technology can have a positive impact on education. In doing so, we could avoid unfavourable consequences of improper use, and reap the benefits of a fruitful interaction, either in the family, at school and in the new technology-rich learning environments.
