The COVID-19 pandemic has caused many problems. Both true and false information have driven people to harbour feelings of anxiety, fear, and suspicion. An 'Infodemic' arose from fears of the virus, hoaxes, and fake news. However, it appears that the times are changing. Distance learning has become widespread in schools, and the informatisation of society as a whole is being promoted. Informatics education is important for this age. To interpret information on the Internet, analyse behaviour, and educate students, it is necessary to gather knowledge in various academic fields. We look forward to the participation of several academics and researchers.
