Un debate crucial tiene que ver con la forma en que las universidades actúan y preparan a su profesorado, en sus roles investigativos y educativos, para dar sentido a la complejidad en las prácticas y los discursos sobre datos en contextos institucionales y culturales situados. Apoyando esta premisa, en este capítulo vamos a realizar el siguiente r...
Article
Artificial intelligence systems such as early warning systems are becoming more common in Higher Education. However, the students' reactions to such techno-pedagogical innovations are much less explored in settings beyond the development and testing. This paper analyses the students' acceptance of an early warning system developed at a fully online...

Research on Open Government Data (OGD) use reveals that the data is not being used as expected. Many governments have opened their data but lack the development of the capacities required for OGD usage. There is a need of having frameworks of reference for open data literacy (ODL). The initial screening of the literature uncovers there is a dearth...
Chapter
The phenomenology around data is complex and evolving, meaning there might not be a universal perspective on educators’ data literacy that institutions and the system can embrace in search of social justice. In this chapter, I claim that an evolving, situated and explorative approach should be considered. Such an approach should be based on profess...
