The global dimension of education is highlighted in contemporary discussions that include the idea of a dissolution of boundaries. At the same time, education systems have developed idiosyncratic characteristics related to the specific cultural traits and the local practicalities. The symposium will focus on the American continent and its national specific initiatives on dealing with inequality and the implementation and use of digital technologies in education settings. Both aspects challenge boundaries in education. Three contributions present initiatives and developments from Brazil, Mexico and Uruguay. They represent different parts of the continent, with different traditions and political decisions at play in efforts to overcome educational challenges in inequality and to invest in digital technologies to take part in global development. We open up a space for discussing how national education systems act and if there is a global path that lead to a dissolution of boundaries.
