Abstract(s)CULTURis fosters the development of collective knowledge, where the primary concern focuses on citizens of all ages and social conditions integrated in a common regional network, to desirably communicate with formal and informal learning and development spaces. Within a collaborative action research methodology, pervasive and ubiquitous technologies (Fernandes, Machado & Carvalho, 2007) are adopted to make tangible the concept of leadership for learning and innovation. What is evident from the project, as part of the paper that we propose, is the relevance of generating contextual activities for learners in areas of personal and collective action, where the family assumes a nuclear environment of belonging and, as such, the key for involving learners in natural contexts of learning that the community/city can provide in a creative, entertaining, constructively critical, transformative and inclusive way. These activities contextualized within natural environments of belonging, mean structuring niches of daily multiple and significant learning experiences (in the work of Dunst, 2001), configured for glocal innovative postures. Capable of providing, quality and diversity meaningful life opportunities that enable transmuting life with joy, with confidence, while structural axes for plural and global integrated learning and development of citizens, of learners, assuming in itself a concept of leadership and inclusion (Viana & Serrano, 2010). CULTURis propose creates spaces that represent different learning styles, needs and interests of learners and a contextually model of teacher’s training, which generates learning beyond institutional walls. The Information Systems enables the teachers and learners to have access/visibility from the place where they are and leverages their education/training. So, this project contributes to improve the knowledge and skills leaders must have to meet the expectations for 21st century challenges (ET and EU 2020, DL. 281/2009), enriching and creating a space of learning opportunities (new spaces for learning – encouraging development and learning). In the management of information resources, the project coordinates and integrates critically the various media – people, information sources and technologies – ensuring the quality of information and the use with quality (effective), allowing informed decisions. The role of information systems as part of construction of meaning in leadership for learning – a creative and innovative response to the challenges of inclusion, constitutes a major challenge about knowledge on the role of teacher and education for 21st century learners.
