The development of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in Education is both the support and the means for the emergence of new views, ways of thinking, processes and contexts underlying accomplishment in social and school learning. A thorough study of this subject influences the conception of new interfaces between what is formal and informal and what is experienced and constructed through social interaction and contact with sites and representations of knowledge. The diffusion and generalization of Web x+1 promotes a growing proximity between communities of practice and schools through a collaborative and shared mediation in network learning environments.

From this background rises the 6th edition of the International Conference on Information and Communication Technologies in Education - Challenges 2009, in which we celebrate the 10th anniversary of this event. The main theme of discussion and reflection is (In)Formal Learning, which will be developed into three topics of discussion: Emerging Educational Environments, Digital and Curriculum, and Online Evaluation.

This event's trademark is the integration of researchers and educators from different levels of teaching in the presentation and discussion of experiences and projects regarding innovation through Information and Communication Technologies. Abiding by tradition, we invite you to take part in Challenges 2009 and therefore contribute to the enrichment of knowledge in this domain.
