Book
Full-text available
The publication aims to guide policy-makers to ensure that when adopting technology, human rights should be defended; inclusion, equity and gender equality should be at the heart of solutions; and innovations should be considered as a common good. Based on these principles, the publication presents a human-centred view on the potentials of technolo...
Article
Studies show that students and teachers frequently use the internet for learning and teaching, but that both lack the skills necessary to utilise it e ectively. The authors designed an intervention to develop teachers' information search skills and improve the information problem-solving using the internet (IPS-I) tasks that they implement with the...
Article
Research shows that students face a range of difficulties when using the Internet to solve information problems. Using a quasi-experimental design, we tested a strategy to improve Chilean 10th graders’ skills for information problem solving using the Internet (IPS-I). The intervention was based on a workshop in which students learned IPS-I strategi...
Article
Full-text available
Many studies show that a large percentage of students lack the digital competencies to solve information problems using the internet. To address this problem, researchers have developed models to structure the process. However, we maintain that it is first necessary to understand how students actually search for information online when solving an i...
Chapter
The widespread availability and use of ICT in society, in general, is leading teachers and students to use these tools to complement their teaching and learning processes outside the traditional classroom context. However, the evidence shows that many students and teachers lack the digital skills needed to make effective use of these tools; which l...
Article
Evidence shows that teachers’ use of information and communication technology (ICT) in the classroom is still limited in variety and frequency. However, their use of ICT outside the classroom, while more frequent, has been less studied. Our research aims to identify personal factors associated with teachers’ ICT use inside and outside the classroom...
Article
Teachers’ use of ICT has mainly focused on their use in classroom context and few studies have focused on their use elsewhere. Attempting to fill this gap, this paper presents a case study of 12 secondary teachers characterising their use of ICT in and out-of-the-classroom. Results show that teachers use these tools inside the classroom for present...
Article
This paper presents the results of an analysis of secondary students’ computer use, aimed at understanding how different factors influence the profile of activities carried out by students with computers.

Chapter
Full-text available
This chapter reviews the effects of technologies on learning opportunities and outcomes of students in developing countries. We found relatively little impact of information and communications technologies (ICTs) on learning, only a few small-scale interventions that demonstrated positive impact under specific conditions, few large-scale ICT progra...

Article
Full-text available
In the early 90's Chile began an educational reform for its primary and secondary school system. Similar processes took place in many countries around the world, 1 adjusting educa-tion to the so-called "Knowledge Society" that was ap-proaching at the end of the millennium. Many aspects of the Chilean Educational Reform are similar to other reforms...
Article
Most educational software is designed to foster students' learning outcomes but with little consideration of the teaching framework in which it will be used. This paper presents a significantly different model of educational software that was derived from a case study of two teachers participating in a software design process. It shows the relation...
Article
Full-text available
Much of the research on the use of computers in education either looks at the computer as a cognitive tool or as a catalyst for change aimed at fostering students' learning and changing teachers' actual routines. However, neither of these perspectives gives much consideration to the teaching framework in which the computer is actually used. In orde...
Article

Thesis
Most present day educational software has been designed for use as a cognitive tool, aimed at fostering students' learning outcomes and without considering the teaching framework in which it will be used. A literature review demonstrated that there is a lack of evidence about teachers' concepts and beliefs concerning educational software. In order...
