Latin American countries have an urgent need to share, to unite efforts and to grow up together in many areas, but especially in those areas that could lead us to improve the educational level of our people. Learning technologies may be considered by many the cornerstones for a whole new educational era that is under development, and Latin American countries must maintain an active forum for discussion of the existing technological alternatives that can be applied to our regional contexts. LACLO intends to be such a forum, where researchers, developers and educational practitioners are able to share their experiences and technological advances in the field of learning technologies, and to integrate these various technological developments into their teaching and learning contexts.
