Due to the expansion of knowledge around us we are “besieged” by a multitude of data that attracts our attention and pressures us to interact with it, motivating us to receive information, memorize, and form new skills. Children, adolescents, and adults’ social, emotional, intellectual, and psychomotor development need to be taken into account when determining their ability to meet the demands in education or in a given sport or arts.

Growth and technological advances in the areas of educational psychology, sport, and art have changed considerably over time, such as in relation to students’ and athletes' preparation and performance. In this context, psychology often what makes the difference between good and great students (or athletes), between first and last place.

Interpreted by many as a eulogy to physical exercise, Juvenal's dictum - "Mens sana in corpore sano" - gives the cultivation of the spirit equal status, even, according to the cliché, primacy. In an increasingly technological world, the concern of children (and parents), adolescents, and adults for their own growth and development is essential for their well-being, health, and productivity in the decades to come, and in turn, for their nations and communities to thrive.

Educational psychology and psychological growth through arts and sports are all in expansion. The extent to which the two environments spur growth is giving them value. Therefore, specialists (teachers, psychologists, social workers, coaches, etc.), in working with children, adolescents or adults, must pay constant attention to progressive development, to the ability to learn, change, and adapt. Technology supports specialists, with the help of which one can investigate, for example, the implicit associations that children, adolescents, and adults can be supported in their life in general or in a specific field like arts or sports to perform better than in present.

The aim of the Research Topic is to generate relevant information for psychologists, educators, and sport science specialists to facilitate growth and development in children, teenagers, and adults, increasing their performance levels - in education and sports.
