Abstract

The European Higher Education Area and today's society, demand people trained at a cognitive, affective and emotional level, with extensive knowledge of Information and Communication Technologies that allow their comprehensive training to be able to adequately develop new tasks demanded by public and private institutions. In the same way, the educational curriculum and the European Institutions seek greater knowledge on the part of the teaching staff, to carry out their teaching work, but the time and space disabilities often limit the possibility of being able to train. Therefore, online training is considered an appropriate option for teachers to be trained through an educational model that encourages their autonomy and allows them to decide where, when and how to learn. However, it must be understood that all people are different and this training must be adapted to the needs of each of the participants. Many Universities in Spain develop their training offer through this model. The University of Extremadura is adapting to this training modality by proposing a variety of postgraduate studies, such as the University Master's Degree in Research in Teacher Training and ICT, which has evolved from being offered in a blended way to being carried out online. Faced with this situation, the research problem was raised: "Does a change occur in the attitude, knowledge and use of ICT resources, emotions, learning styles and the structure of knowledge acquired in the development of a Master in a modality? distance? ”, whose answer will allow the general research objective to be fulfilled: Observe if there is an evolution in the attitude, knowledge and use of ICT resources, the emotions in front of the elements of the virtual platform, of the emotions in front of the performance of the tasks offered by the teaching staff, the specific emotions in front of the tasks of the platform and the fundamental contents of the Master according to the gender, age and learning styles of the students. The thesis has been developed in two phases: In the first, a pilot study was carried out that allowed us to approach the behavior of the variables and the reality of the Master. In the second phase, the definitive study was carried out, which gave an answer to the question and the research objectives. A mixed concurrent triangulation design was used, in which a single-group pretest and posttest design was used for the quantitative design and the content analysis technique was used for the qualitative design, supported by the Theory of Nuclear Concepts. and the Pathfinder Associative Networks. Both designs are executed in parallel to carry out a methodological triangulation in the conclusions stage, contrasting and complementing the results obtained in both designs. The sample used was the Master's degree students, the class of 2017/2018 for the pilot study and 2018/2019 for the definitive study. Among the main conclusions obtained, it is highlighted that there is no significant change in attitude, knowledge, use of ICT resources and emotions in students with the development of the Master. However, a significant improvement in knowledge of ICT resources has been observed in the pragmatic learning style with the development of the Master. On the other hand, a positive and significant correlation has been obtained between knowledge and the use of ICT resources, both at the beginning and at the end of the Master, and a positive and significant correlation between emotions versus the elements of the virtual platform and emotion specific to the activities of the platform, both in the pilot study and in the pretest and posttest of the definitive study. No statistically significant differences have been observed in these aspects based on gender and age, which helps to verify that the digital and emotional gap is being mitigated in the variables analyzed. The students have developed their learning towards research, preferably carrying out collaborative activities and have used ICT preferably to search for information, improving their knowledge in databases with the development of the Master. They have also used them for communication, since they consider that they are an indispensable piece for the development of the Master. A regression was observed in the initial consideration that a fundamental activity to develop in the Master to improve the critical sense of the students was the holding of debates. At the beginning, the greatest difficulties of students when preparing a scientific report are presented in the design and methodology part, observing an increase at the end of the Master in the consideration that data analysis and obtaining results are also parts complex for its realization. The students consider in a preferential way that ICT can be linked in a multidisciplinary way, being used in the different learning areas and that the knowledge acquired in the Master, can be extrapolated to their working life. Finally, it has been observed that the main focuses where the teaching / learning problems are concentrated in the Master are the teachers, the organization and the lack of presence of the Master.

The academic literature confirms the difference between the perspectives of students and professors when designing and applying teaching methodologies. This paper uses the case of entrepreneurship teaching in doctoral programs to point out the differences between both groups when designing the content of the modules. It also highlights the need to incorporate students' perspectives in the design of this type of courses. This article presents some of the first results of the prodPhD project, funded under the H2020-Swarfs program and started in 2020. The objective of this phase of the project is the design of information retrieval to know the needs of the university community (in particular, students and professors of doctoral programs) in terms of entrepreneurship education. The study uses a mixed methodology which includes surveys to students and professors and interviews to students from several universities and European countries. In a first phase, the interviews were distributed through the contact points of the universities. After the analysis of the results, interviews were conducted with those participants who showed interest in continuing the study. The results reveal that, in the field of entrepreneurship, students and professors have different priorities. It is therefore necessary to combine both perspectives and complement the needs of students with the knowledge and experience of professors to create attractive courses that offer students resources to fulfill their professional needs.

Nos encontramos en una sociedad en la que el aprendizaje ha cambiado vertiginosamente, debido a diversos factores como la mejora de la tecnología educativa, la pandemia provocada por el COVID-19 o el avance de la sociedad del conocimiento. Es por ello, que no solo es importante formar al alumnado en los contenidos de los currículos oficiales de cada una de las Comunidades Autónomas, sino que hay que buscar que el alumnado adquiera un conjunto de competencias clave, adquiridas en contextos formales o no formales, que les permita desarrollarse como personas y puedan acceder de forma eficiente al mercado laboral. Por ello, se planificó y diseñó una propuesta didáctica participativa, que ayude a la adquisición de estas competencias clave. Nos planteamos la pregunta de investigación: ¿El alumnado es consciente de su aprendizaje al realizar actividades participativas? como inquietud de nuestro grupo de investigación al desarrollar la propuesta didáctica con un grupo de 1º de Educación Secundaria del Instituto Vía Dalmacia de la población de Torrejoncillo. Se realizaron entrevistas semiestructuradas a cuatro informantes clave, que fueron docentes que participaron en la planificación y desarrollo de la experiencia. Se utilizó una metodología cualitativa con un díselo fenomenológico, basado en el análisis de contenido. Entre los resultados obtenidos, se destaca que el profesorado piensa preferentemente que el alumnado es consciente de su aprendizaje con la realización de las actividades. Además, los factores que mejoran esta percepción son el tener un papel activo, la colaboración, el interés y la curiosidad. En cambio, entre los factores que dificultan la consciencia del aprendizaje en el alumnado son la inmadurez y la falta de auto-percepción. La propuesta didáctica realizada, ha ayudado a comprobar cuáles son los factores en los que el profesorado se debe focalizar para que el alumnado pueda ser consciente de las competencias clave que adquiere.

The crisis caused by the appearance of the COVID-19 pandemic has caused serious problems in the educational field worldwide. An unprecedented scenario has been generated for people with disabilities or disabilities, which presents major problems such as social isolation, emotional imbalance, and the widening of the digital divide. The general objective of the research has been: "Analyse the scientific production related to the use of Information and Communication Technologies as a means to improve the teaching and learning process of people with disabilities and autism spectrum disorders during the pandemic". A bibliographic, documentary and content analysis of the publications resulting from the international database, Google Scholar, which meet the eleven defined inclusion and exclusion criteria, was carried out, selecting a total of 50 articles. A table of categories was elaborated, with a double methodology: in the first place deductive, through the analysis of the existing literature on the subject analysed, selecting the fundamental categories of study. On the other hand, it is inductive, through the construction of emerging categories that arise when performing data analysis. It has been verified that most of the references are written by a single author, corresponding to doctoral theses that delve into the use of technologies to improve communication and learning of people with visual and hearing disabilities as the most relevant cases, during the period of confinement. caused by COVID-19. Likewise, it has been observed that there are still many difficulties and a great problem in access to information and communication technology resources by this group, requiring greater help from public and private institutions. The findings found show that it is necessary to provide greater access to technologies by the public administration, while physical or motor disabilities should have greater importance in the scientific literature, since they are the least treated.

Contextualization/Justification: Thinking about the family post-caregiver is recognizing the complexity inherent to the trajectory of care. Although the experience of caring has been widely explored, little is known about the experience of the post-caregiver, the reconstruction of their daily life is essential to understand the resumption of life of the family’s post-caregiver. Goal: This investigation started from the question: What is the post-caregivers’ experience in the reconstruction of their daily life? It aims to understand the post-caregivers' experience in the reconstruction of their daily life. This study is based on a phenomenological methodology with an interpretive design embedded in the Interpretative Phenomenological Approach. The eleven participants had been previously accompanied by an Integrated Continuous Care Team. Organization: An in-depth, unstructured interview was conducted, enabling participants to share significant moments after the decease of the person they had taken care of and to share how they reconstruct their daily life. The phenomenon of reconstruction daily life of this participants' is revealed in the dynamic of the simultaneous relationship: with the past, recalling what was experienced, with the present, in the recognition of the self as well as in their continuous response as they return to the world and to life and, with the future, envisioning an imaginary of challenges and uncertainties. It is in everyday life that participants are reconnected with themselves, with others and with the world. Final Considerations: Through this study, nurses will be able to access the lived experience of these post-caregivers and to challenge themselves in the way they provide care, valuing the expertise to pay attention, improving their intervention in presence. The Integrated Continuous Care Teams in the Community Care Units could be challenged to strengthen support networks for family’s post-caregivers in cooperation with other partners and social resources.

Introduction: With the failure of dating applications for technological devices, various questions have been generated around the psychosocial variables that circulate inside and outside of them. Objectives: The objective of this study focuses on Tinder (dating application), which has grown in popularity in Latin America, particularly in Mexico, raising questions about what motivates individuals to use the application and what they perceive get its use. Method: To address this, an exploratory - descriptive study was carried out through the online application of an open questionnaire regarding the reasons for using Tinder. In it, 450 Mexicans collaborated, with an age range of 18 to 38 years. To analyze the results, a qualitative content analysis was carried out. Results: 12 categories were identified, classified into gratifications obtained (why of use) and gratifications sought (why of use). Both men and women share reasons for social use, such as entertainment, and search for a partner, as well as curiosity about the use of the application; however, men tend to seek sexual encounters more frequently than women; while they seek to establish friendships and validate their physical appearance (ego – boosting). Conclusions: It is suggested that since Tinder is a virtual space that favors the satisfaction of the psychosocial needs of the individual, studies continue to be carried out on its use.

Introduction: The pandemic of COVID-19 imposed the elaboration and dissemination of content about protection and prevention of the disease for different audiences. Objective: Analyze videos released by government institutions related to COVID-19 protection and prevention for people with disabilities (PWD) in light of Cognitive Theory of Multimedia Learning (CTML). Methods: Documentary research, carried out on the official websites of the governmental spheres of Brazil and on the YouTube video sharing platform. Results: Identified 33 videos produced in 2020 and their contents presented understandable language, clear and varied colors, devoid of figures or animations. Of these, 29 videos included the Libras interpreter and one used audio description of the images. Two categories were identified: Protective Measures of COVID-19 in PWD and Preventive Measures of COVID-19 in PWD. According to the principles of the Theory it was observed adequacy in the conveying of information on the protective measures regarding the principles of coherence, signaling, spatial and temporal contiguity, pre-training, modality, multimedia and customization in the language on individual and collective protection measures, educational inclusion and accessibility to rehabilitation assistance by telehealth. In the preventive measures, the principles of multimedia, personalization, voice, image, signaling, and personalization are attended to, as hand washing, respiratory etiquette, correct use of the face mask and with lip visor, facing COVID-19 for intellectual PWD, hygiene of support equipment, and protocols used in inclusive residences were explained. Conclusions: The principles of CTML contributed satisfactorily to the visual materials published about COVID-19 for PWD, however, this communication modality needs a greater reach to the interested public.

The pandemic caused by COVID-19 has led many more universities to increase the number of online courses they offer. Methodological processes and infrastructure have had to be adapted so as to make the shift from a classroom-based model to distance learning. The context of our research is the Master's Degree in Research in Teacher Training and Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). Two research objectives were established: To determine the changes that take place between the beginning and end of the Master's degree in relation to the students' engagement with ICT and to ascertain if students’ perception of the problems encountered in the virtual teaching/learning process has changed. Twenty-one master’s students took part. The research was based on the qualitative paradigm, with a content analysis research design. A table of categories was developed and validated, from which the script for the structured interviews was prepared. The main findings highlight the lack of training and involvement of teachers and their failure to adapt to the online methodology, together with a decrease in student motivation, as being particularly problematic in the teaching and learning process.

Living Labs are spaces and laboratories created in natural areas aimed at social innovation. The basic principle of these labs is improving people's quality of life and the improvement of regions, the functioning of compa-nies, etc. One of the areas in which Living Labs interventions are applied is the elderly. Seniorlabs are initiatives aimed at improving the quality of life of older people. Actions include improving physical health, mental health, the home, and the creation of technologies for these purposes. The qualitative study presented in this document has been carried out with the aim of finding to find out the relationship established between the elderly and digital technology, in other words, what use do the elderly make of it. It also aims to answer the research question: do people over 65 years of age use technology in their daily lives? To carry out the study, using a phenomenological perspective, semi-structured interviews were conducted with people over 65 years of age in Spain. From the study, it can be concluded that various initiatives are optimistically being carried out in different European countries and that impact research on these actions is being published. Finally, it can also be concluded that older people use fewer technologies in their daily lives than those that exist to make their lives easier. The main reasons for this are that they do not know how to use them, or they are afraid to use them and damage the device.

RESUMEN:El estudio se realiza en 2006 con un grupo de personas adultas que están cursando un postgrado. La investigación tiene dos partes; por un lado el perfil de las personas que se forman en el curso, y otra, las interpretaciones y sensaciones que estas personas tienen respecto a los aspectos más generales del curso. Con el claro objetivo de conocer las diferencias entre los distintos estilos de aprendizaje, también se tuvieron en cuenta otros dos aspectos fundamentales a la hora de describir el perfil de los usuarios: su motivación de logro y la satisfacción. Con la investigación se pretende conocer si hay algún estilo de aprendizaje en concreto que se adapte perfectamente a las características de este postgrado y en caso afirmativo, observar el porqué y también si la motivación de logro y la satisfacción correspondientes a ese estilo son los que mejores resultados han obtenido. LEARNING STYLES, ACHIEVEMENT MOTIVATION AND SATISFACTION IN ON-LINE ENVIRONMENTS ABSTRACT:The study was conducted in 2006 with a group of adults who are studying a postgraduate. The investigation has two parts, on the one hand the profile of the students in the course, and another, interpretations and feelings that these people have regard to the broader aspects of the course. With the clear objective to know the differences between the different learning styles, also took into account two other aspects to describe the profile of users: achievement motivation and satisfaction. The research seeks to know whether there was any specific learning style that fits perfectly with the characteristics of this postgraduate and if so, why and also observe whether the achievement motivation and satisfaction for that style are the best results obtained.

RESUMEN:El trabajo se inicia destacando diferencias conceptuales entre estilo cognitivo, estilo de aprendizaje y estrategia de aprendizaje. Se retoma el modelo de Vermunt (1998; 1996) que se ocupa específicamente de los estilos de alumnos universitarios. Se trabajó con 516 estudiantes, haciendo una distinción por género, edad, facultad, año de cursado, rendimiento académico y autoconcepto académico. Se aplicó el ILS (Inventory of Learning Styles) de Vermunt que indaga acerca de: a) estrategias de procesamiento; b) estrategias de regulación; evidencian tendencias marcadas hacia cada uno de los cuatro estilos: no dirigido, dirigido a la reproducción, dirigido a la aplicación y dirigido al significado, para los diferentes alumnos en cada una de las diversas variables. Finalmente se ofrecen algunas sugerencias a la luz de los hallazgos. Learning styles in university students: characteristics in their learning ABSTRACT: The work begins highlighting the conceptual differences between cognitive style, learning style and learning strategy. We have adopted the model of Vermunt (1998, 1996) that deals specifically with the styles of university students. We worked with 516 students, making a distinction by gender, age, college, year completed, academic achievement and academic self-concept. We applied the ILS (Inventory of Learning Styles) of Vermunt who inquires about: a) processing strategies, b) regulation strategies; c) learning orientations and d) mental models of learning. The findings show a marked tendency for each of the four styles: undirected learning, reproduction directed learning, application directed learning and meaning directed for different students according to the different variables. Finally, some suggestions are offered the light of the findings.

Las Tecnologías de la información y comunicación (TIC) se convierten en la sociedad de la Información en un agente de cambio. En este contexto las TIC deben transformarse en herramientas pedagógicas al servicio del profesor con el fin de lograr una educación de calidad. Conscientes de la importancia de que los profesores dominen las competencias digitales, hemos realizado un estudio sobre el dominio de las tecnologías de la información y la comunicación (TIC) que poseen los estudiantes de tercer curso de la titulación de Magisterio de la Universidad de Vigo. Para ello se han tenido en cuenta los conocimientos adquiridos, la frecuencia en la utilización de determinadas herramientas, su nivel de dominio en cuatro ámbitos de conocimiento: Alfabetización tecnológica, Instrumentos de trabajo intelectual, Tratamiento y difusión de la información y como Herramientas de comunicación. Así como sus motivaciones e intereses y los obstáculos encontrados en su desarrollo con el fin de establecer propuestas para la formación inicial. Podemos concluir que, en general, el alumnado no tiene una formación específica sobre el funcionamiento de los ordenadores. Sobre el grado de conocimiento de las diferentes destrezas el alumno conoce las más básicas y las que utilizan habitualmente (abrir o bajar un archivo, crear o imprimir un documento, instalar un programa o enviar un e-mail). Utilizan habitualmente el correo como una herramienta de trabajo, mientras que la mensajería y las redes sociales las utilizan más en tiempos de ocio. Sus actitudes hacia las TIC son muy positivas y sus motivaciones se centran fundamentalmente en que las tecnologías son útiles para mejorar su aprendizaje y para su futuro laboral.
