The Proceedings of the 4th International Conference Education Across Borders is an electronic publication for revised and extended papers presented at the Education Across Borders Conference in Florina, Greece, during 19-20October, 2018. All papers in the Proceedings correspond to the proposals submitted and accepted for the Education Across Borders 2018 Conference. All submitted proposals went through a blind review by two or three reviewers prior to being accepted to the Conference.
The authors were asked to produce updated versions of their papers and take into account the discussion that took place after the presentation and the suggestions received from other participants at the Conference. On the whole, the e-Proceedings present a comprehensive overview of ongoing studies in Education Research in Europe and beyond.
The editors carried out a review of the updated versions of the papers that were submitted after the Conference. The editors do not necessarily endorse or share the ideas and views presented in or implied by the papers included in this book.
