ABSTRACT Resumen En los últimos años se está observando un interés creciente por la adopción de un paradigma interpretativo para el estudio de Sistemas de Información, como forma de captar su complejidad teniendo en cuenta el contexto en que se aplican y la visión de los participantes sobre los problemas estudiados. Sin embargo, esta perspectiva presenta nuevos retos, entre los que se encuentra la necesidad de orientaciones metodológicas y herramientas para apoyar los estudios. En este trabajo se presenta una propuesta de método mixto para la evaluación formativa con una orientación interpretativa, aplicado a un dominio concreto dentro de los Sistemas de Información: los sistemas de apoyo al aprendizaje colaborativo. Dicho método combina fuentes de datos de diversa procedencia, y varias formas de análisis bajo un esquema cualitativo global. La propuesta ha sido definida y puesta en marcha en un proyecto de investigación educativa a lo largo de los últimos tres años. El método es generalizable a otros Sistemas de Información, cuestión que sería interesante abordar como medio para validar y refinar la propuesta, y a la vez contribuir a la extensión de la perspectiva interpretativa a otros dominios. Palabras clave: investigación cualitativa, enfoque interpretativo, evaluación formativa, estudio de casos, CSCL.

    ABSTRACT: Participatory design typically focuses on envisionment and evaluation activities. We explored a method for pushing the participatory activities further "upstream" in the design process, to the initial analysis of requirements. We used a variant of the task-artifact fi-arnework, carrying out a participatory claims analysis during a design workshop fm a project addressing collaborative science education. The analysis used videotaped classroom sessions as source material. The participant-teachers were highly engaged by the analysis process and contributed significantly to the analysis results. We conclude that the method has promise as a technique for evoking self-reflection and analysis in a participatory design setting.

    ABSTRACT: This paper describes the design, setup and evaluation of an educational project in computer architecture studies. Its design through the educational-telematic framework DELFOS, proposed by the authors' research group, aims to employ computer supported collaborative learning in computer engineering studies. Its main objective is to integrate lectures, simple assignments and laboratory work through projects and case studies in computer architecture design and evaluation. Experimental studies were carried out during two academic years with very encouraging results. At least three student groups in each session dealt with one out of 5 distinct case studies. Students assumed the roles of consulting firm and computer manufacturer, who try to give an answer to a specific customer/market sector. Cooperative learning was carried out through synchronous guided discussions within the class in key dates, asynchronous document sharing and discussions, as well as collaborative edition of the final project report. Analysis of the experimental work was performed on both ethnographic data and computer transcriptions, while current studies deal with student interactions with social network analysis methods

    ABSTRACT: This paper presents the design of Quest, a telematic tool that automates the management of student questionnaires that serve to collect the basic data for our educational research. The aim of the tool is to make easier for the students to fill the questionnaires and to facilitate the researchers to process the answers with qualitative or quantitative software packages. The tool is then offered through the WWW, with a client-server design. The telematic design is constrained by the fact that the response time should be limited for the operations carried out by the students, and independent of the number of students using the tool, which in turn requires to reduce the traffic over the network. Quest has been used for a semester in our educational research, providing more student satisfaction, which improves their implication with the research, and reducing the burden on the researcher to process the collected data.
