Educational services provided to various stakeholders need to be actively developed to accommodate the diversity of learning models and to get the advantages of available resources (e.g. data) in smart cities governance. Despite the substantial literature on smart cities, for Technology-Enhanced Learning (TEL) and its related domains such as learning analytics and big data, little effort has been given to the creation of connectivity to smart cities governance to meet stakeholders’ demands, even though this connection may generate various challenges arising from conflict of interests between stakeholders and organisations. This paper proposes a structural framework for successful application of smart learning environments in the context of smart city governance. It reflects on selected challenges and proposes some future directions.
