InScience Press is delighted to publish this book entitled Education Applications & Developments II as part of the Advances in Education and Educational Trends series. These series of books comprise authors and editors work to address generalized research, albeit focused in specific sections, in the Education area. 

In this second volume, a dedicated set of authors explore the Education field, contributing to the frontlines of knowledge. Success depends on the participation of those who wish to find creative solutions and believe their potential to change the world, altogether to increase public engagement and cooperation from communities. Part of our mission is to serve society with these initiatives and promote knowledge, therefore it requires the reinforcement of research efforts, education and science and cooperation between the most diverse studies and backgrounds.

Contents show us how to navigate in the most broadening issues in contemporary education and research. In particular, this book explores four major divisions within general Education, corresponding to four sections: “Teachers and Students”, “Projects and Trends”, “Teaching and Learning”, and “Organizational Issues”. Each section comprises chapters that have emerged from extended and peer reviewed selected papers originally published in the proceedings of the International Conference on Education and New Developments (END) conference series (http://end-educationconference.org/). This meeting occurs annually with successful outcomes. Original papers have been selected and invited to be extended significantly, reviewed, and authors of the accepted chapters requested to make corrections and improve final submitted chapters.
