Technologies associated with the modern computing are emerging at an unbelievably rapid pace. This development
is occurring in accordance with how the computing power is exponentially growing every year. I believe that it is
certainly a very exciting time for the human race to witness how the latest technologies are contributing to almost every aspect of our lives. Education is certainly one of these areas. We have moved from text based Computer
Aided Learning (CAL) products of the 1970s and 1980s to learning with smart phones and handheld tablets with
advanced and very realistic graphics. These products are completed with sophisticated, comprehensive, modestly
priced and instantly available applications.

Very soon, we will be witnessing new products based on the ideas of augmented reality. These products such as
Google Glass will revolutionise many tasks including learning and teaching. Both educators and learners will be
able to embark on totally new and effective ways of education.

As a participant and session chair at ICEEPSY 2013, I listened to several very interesting, timely and relevant
presentations. It is an honour to be the Guest Editor of the Volume V especially related to the emerging technologies
in education of the ICEEPSY Conference and CPSYC Congress 2013.
