In Memoriam: Juan Carlos Tedesco
The Scientific Editorial Board and the editors of the International Journal of Educational Technology in Higher Education (ETHE) would like to express their condolences to the family and friends of Juan Carlos Tedesco, who passed away on Monday, 8 May, in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Professor Tedesco devoted his life to teaching and research in the field of education, and in recent years he focused his attention on the impact of technologies on education and on the future of higher education. He took part and collaborated in the development of major institutions, such as the management of the UNESCO International Institute for Education Planning (IIEP) and the management of the UNESCO Regional Bureau of Education for Latin America and the Caribbean (OREALC). He was also Minister for Education of the Argentine Republic between 2007 and 2009, in the government first of Néstor Kirchner and then of Cristina Fernández Kirchner.
Juan Carlos Tedesco worked with the journal, initially under the title of RUSC. Universities and Knowledge Society Journal, participating on the Science Editorial Board from July 2014, as an article reviewer, and offering significant reflections and proposals for the improvement and dissemination of the International Journal of Educational Technology in Higher Education (ETHE) in Latin America and worldwide.
