  • Impacto del uso de TIC para mediar conversaciones genuinas entre estudiantes y docentes de educación primaria en escuela públicas, Proyecto CONGENIA

    Galvis Panqueva, Alvaro Hernán (DIALNET OAI ArticlesUniversidad de Castilla-La Mancha: Escuela Superior de Informática, 2012)
    We analyze the institutional and personal impact that results from applying CONGENIA´s four key ideas on teaching processes of participating schools, taking as evidence the innovative practices carried out by teachers and students, and, as sources, testimonies of those who took part in this in-service training process; we derive lessons that illuminate the possible expansion of the project to other regions and made explicit the challenges of an educational innovation as CONGENIA
  • La relación de responsabilidad entre el estado y los proveedores de servicios de telecomunicaciones

    Becerra Ortiz, Jairo Andrés (DIALNET OAI Articles, 2016)
    Este artículo pretende describir la relación que existe entre los proveedores de servicios de telecomunicaciones (PST) (operadores) y el Estado en los casos donde las actuaciones de la administración a través de medios digitales comportan una responsabilidad debido al papel que desempeñan los PST, como intermediarios y garantes del servicio de comunicaciones entre la administración y los ciudadanos. Hemos tratado de establecer en el desarrollo de la investigación que se puede presentar aparte de la responsabilidad civil de los PST, una responsabilidad imputable al Estado en cuanto a su función de vigilancia, una responsabilidad derivada de la falla en la prestación del servicio, y una en cuanto a que la administración delega en los PST la salvaguarda, custodia y manejo de la información de los ciudadanos.
  • A framework for adapting services' design and execution to privacy regulations

    De Luca, A; Tropea, G; Lioudakis, GV; Koutsoloukas, EA; Dellas, NL; Testa, F; Blanchebarbe, M (2014-03-01)
    The potential impact of contemporary Information and Communication Technologies on users' privacy rights is regarded as being among their most evident negative effects. In fact, the recent advances in mobile communications, location and sensing technologies as well as data processing, are boosting the deployment of context-aware personalized services and the creation of smart environments, but at the same time, they pose a serious risk on individuals' privacy rights. In order to address this issue, this paper provides a framework for settling the services privacy friendly. The presented approach focuses on specifying a methodology for adapting services to operate on top of a middleware system that incorporates and thus, enforces the privacy regulations, preventing to a great extent the disclosure of personal data to the service providers even if personal data is collected and services are used through pervasive, ubiquitous and wireless devices.
  • Assessing Rural Women Food Producers Capacity to Adopt Modern ICTs – A case Study of the Mfantsiman District of Ghana

    Sampong, D.D.; Egyir, Irene Susana; Yaw, Osei-Asare (2009-07-23)
    The traditional way of information dissemination has been through people; the modern way is through the electronic media – improved information and communication technologies (ICTs). For effectiveness, modern ICTs should help women to improve on their income generating capacity. Issues of level of resource capacity of women, information needed, and current sources of such information become important. This study sought to investigate the issues above with respect to rural women food producers in the Mfantsiman District of Ghana. Simple descriptive statistics and econometric models were employed in the data analysis of 91 randomly selected respondents. The results of the study showed that: In general, the women food producers were aged, subsistence food crop farmers. They depended on the natural rainfall cycle and had inadequate funds, so they use traditional inputs for production and sell surpluses in the community. The most important agricultural information needed was on inputs, specifically, low cost in-kind or cash credit. Currently, the major information sources are relatives and other farmers in the locality, agricultural extension agents, the radio and television. This suggests that the women food producers have low resource capacity and this could limit the adoption of modern ICTs as a source of and media for information dissemination. Yet, the regression results show that the few (6) mobile phone users have a higher income generating capacity. In order to improve on capacity to use modern ICTs for increased access to other resources, women farmers’ should organize themselves into formidable groups so local institutions can assist easily.
