Systems integration is a major challenge across many disciplines, with a large number of technical, project, organisational or environmental problems occurring as a result of improper integration. This article highlights the scope of the challenges facing systems integration and explains why it requires the incorporation of both technical and non-technical domains. Humans, systems and the environment, as well as the interactions among them, significantly contribute to the proper integration of systems. These, however, have been formulated differently across different engineering disciplines. For example, systems engineering considers the human to be part of the system, while railway engineering considers the human to be part of the system environment. This paper explores the fundamentals of integration and lays a theoretical foundation for the integration of systems. It will introduce Safety Cube theory to outline these fundamental aspects of system integration. Example applications are provided at the end of the paper.

This article develops a Digital Capital Index by adopting the definition provided by Ragnedda, who defines Digital Capital as the accumulation of digital competencies and digital technologies, and the model for measuring it developed by Ragnedda and Ruiu. It aims to develop a measure that can be replicated for comparison in different contexts. This article contributes both theoretically and empirically to the literature by (a) consolidating the concept of Digital Capital as a specific capital and (b) empirically measuring it. A Digital Capital Index is developed through an exploratory factor analysis (EFA) and validated with a representative sample survey of 868 UK citizens. The validation procedure shows that the Digital Capital Index is associated with socioeconomic and sociodemographic patterns, such as age, income, educational level and place of residence, while it appears not to be related to gender.

La brecha digital universitaria: La apropiación de las TIC en estudiantes de educación superior en Bogotá (Colombia) The Digital Divide in the University: The Appropriation of ICT in Higher Education Students from Bogota, Colombia CRISTIAN BERRÍO-ZAPATA es Investigador en la Universidade Estadual Paulista (UNESP) en Marília (Brasil) RESUMEN El crecimiento e inserción de las tecnologías de la comunicación (TIC) en la economía mundial, ha generado condiciones que afectan profundamente a nuestra sociedad, dividiéndola entre comunidades que apropian efectivamente estos recursos y aquellos que no lo hacen, situación denominada «brecha digital». Este estudio exploratorio buscó proponer y validar formas de evaluación de tal fenómeno en la educación superior, a partir de la construcción de un modelo y metodología integral que atiendan a las condiciones de contexto, en adición a la medición de elementos de acceso y motivación de uso ya utilizadas en investigaciones anteriores. Se trabajó con estudiantes de tres Universidades de Bogotá para obtener indicios con respecto al comportamiento del fenómeno. 566 encuestas fueron administradas en cuatro fases para probar las variables propuestas por el modelo. Los resultados muestran que las variables del modelo se relacionan de manera encadenada y escalonada; la relación más fuerte se dio entre educación, actitud frente a las TIC y su aplicación. Aun cuando los estudiantes encuestados tienen condiciones óptimas de acce-so y formación, no se encontró una relación fuerte con la percepción de impacto productivo; esto puede deberse a una apropia-ción superficial de las TIC producto de un contexto extraño a sus condiciones de origen (industrialismo, innovación), educación de calidad pobre y economías no centradas en I+D. ABSTRACT The growth and integration of ICTs in the global economy have created conditions that profoundly affect our society, dividing communities between those who effectively appropriate these resources and those who do not, what is called the «digital divide». This exploratory study seeks to propose and validate ways of assessing this phenomenon in higher education, from the construction of a model and a comprehensive methodology that value contextual conditions, in addition to measuring access factors and motivation for use, that have been employed in previous research. To obtain indications about the behavior of this phenomenon, we developed research with students from three universities in Bogota, administering 566 surveys in four phases that would test the variables proposed in the model. The results show that the variables of the model link causally, with the strongest relations between education, attitude towards ICTs and ICT application. Although students have good access to ICTs and high levels of education, no strong relationship was found in regards to «perceived impact on production». This may be explained by a superficial appropriation of ICT, due to a context that is alien to its conditions of origin (industrialism, innovation), poor quality of education and economies not centered around R&D.

El presente artículo desarrolla una visión de la problemática de reconversión productiva en las comunidades rurales colombianas desde el punto de vista de la Sociedad del Conocimiento. En un mundo globalizado donde el valor de la información y el conocimiento es central, estas comunidades se encuentran marginadas por diversos factores con lo cual, su inserción competitiva en la economía mundial es precaria. Desde el año 2000 con el advenimiento del programa "Agenda Conectividad" de la presidencia Pastrana, la apropiación de Tecnologías de la Información y Comunicación en estas comunidades se ha convertido en un foco de actividad. Desde la Gestión de Tecnología entendemos que este no solamente es un problema de Ingeniería Electrónica, sino que implica un análisis sistémico que permita entender la dimensión de las necesidades de la comunidad para poder configurar aquellas soluciones tecnológicas que mejor apalanquen el desarrollo sostenido de las mismas. Este análisis debe ser parte de metodologías que permitan reconocer las opciones estratégicas de la comunidad, así como arrojar claridad sobre los costos y beneficios de la implementación de TIC de forma que exista conciencia en la población sobre los implícitos de cualquier opción y sobre esta base, se puedan tomar decisiones con conocimiento de causa.

Because of the growing amount of information on the internet and people’s increasing dependence on information, internet skills should be considered as a vital resource in contemporary society. This article focuses on the differential possession of internet skills among the Dutch population. In two studies, an in-depth range of internet skills are measured by charging subjects assignments to be accomplished on the internet. Subjects were recruited by applying a random stratified sampling method over gender, age, and education. While the level of operational and formal internet skills appeared quite high, the level of information and strategic internet skills is questionable. Whereas education appeared an important contributor to all skill levels, age only appeared a significant contributor to operational and formal skills. The results strengthen the findings that the original digital divide of physical internet access has evolved into a divide that includes differences in skills to use the internet.

Please cite this article in press as: van Deursen, A.J.A.M., et al., Rethinking Internet skills. The contribution of gender, age, education, Internet experience, and hours online to medium-and content-related Internet skills. Poetics (2011), doi: Abstract This paper focuses on one of the factors that appears to be important in several conceptualizations of how to approach the digital divide: the differential possession of so-called Internet skills. Three large-scale performance tests are conducted to reveal the contributions of gender, age, educational level of attainment, Internet experience, and amount of Internet use on both medium-and content-related Internet skills. Age appears to have a negative influence on medium-related skills. However, there is a positive contribution to the level of content-related skills, meaning that older generations perform better than the younger. Unfortunately, they are impeded by their low level of medium-related skills in such a way that the actual result is negative. This noteworthy conclusion, to our knowledge, has hardly received any attention in digital divide research. Educational attainment appears significant for both medium-and content-related Internet skills. This conclusion contrasts somewhat with other research that claims that people learn digital skills more in practice than in formal educational settings. Internet experience only contributes to medium-related skills. It appears that content-related skills do not grow with years of Internet experience and the number of hours spent online weekly. The latter only has some effect on medium-related skills.
