eLearning and research
The research GRoup of Interaction And e-Learning (GRIAL) is a Recognised Research Group of the University of Salamanca and a Recognised Group of Excellence by the Regional Council of Castille and León. The group is formed by a large number of researchers from different fields of knowledge (see "Miembros del grupo"). Most members have a technical or a pedagogical profile, but there are also members with expertise in e-Learning project management, Humanities, Sciences, etc. The research activity of the group in these last few years has ranged from purely technical and computing projects to the development of pedagogical methodologies and models of reference in the field of online learning which have gained international recognition and awards.

Vol 20 (2012) Reasearch in learning technology

Vol 20 (2012) Reasearch in learning technology | eLearning and research | Scoop.it

Editorial: Relationships with technology
Rhona Sharpe

Abstract

Learning technologists and educational technology researchers will be familiar with scenarios where technologies are not taken up and used in the ways we expect them to be. From telephones to texting, to the web itself, there are ample examples from history of technology being appropriated in unexpected ways. This is one of the reasons why Cook and Noss (2010), in their foreword to a review of the evidence for technology enhanced learning, start out by stating that ‘it really is somewhat fruitless to ask what is the impact of technology-in-general’ (p. 4). Rather what we should be asking is how can we design technologies and the contexts into which they are inserted? Previously, design has been conceptualized as a process of understanding the media properties or affordances of technologies and the act of placing them appropriately within contexts where they could be used to facilitate particular interactions or educational practices (Conole & Dyke, 2004; Laurillard, 2002). As the papers in this journal seem to be increasingly concerned with the people and processes involved in educational technology, it seems insufficient to think of design without a consideration of the relationships between people and technology.

A Social Media Networked Learning Ecology Perspective

Abstract
Learning Technology Professionals (LTPs) use social media as a networked learning environment
(ecology) for their own professional learning. This is done through reading and contributing to blogs,
wikis, Twitter, Facebook, social bookmarking, etc. The various elements of social media and the
connections (people, information, resources) that link them together make up the networked learning
ecology. Specifically, this research draws from the literature on learning ecologies (Barron, 2004, Brown,
2002, Frielick, 2004, Nardi and O'Day, 2000, Siemens, 2008b), networked learning (Banks et al., 2004,
Goodyear et al., 2004, Jones et al., 2008, Steeples and Jones, 2002, Wasson et al., 2003), and on the
growing amount of literature on social media in education. The individual concepts (social media,
networked learning, learning ecology) of a SMNLE have been researched in the context of elementary
and higher education, but there seems to be much less research in how these concepts individually apply
to professional development and learning. Furthermore, the joint concept of a SMNLE has not been
researched. In addition, there seems to be little if any research in the conception held by LTPs of the
relationships, connections and links that exist in their SMNLE. By researching the conceptions of
connections that LTPs hold, this research aims to add to the current body of research and provide insight
into the experiences of those that are pushing the envelope about social media technologies involved in
connecting with learning. The phenomenon I plan to research is that of the relationships within the
networked learning ecology of LTPs. The phenomenon will be researched by looking at the variation in
conception and perception of these connections by LTPs. In order to investigate the variation of meaning
and ways of understanding the connections in their social media based learning ecologies, a
phenomenographic approach for this research is being used. This allows for a description of the range of
the perceiving and experiencing the phenomenon of learning ecology connections that LTPs experience.
By using a phenomenographic approach, the research will be able to show how learning technology
professionals conceive and perceive of the connections within a networked learning ecology.

Determinando el Nivel Cognitivo de un Problema de Matemáticas

En nuestra economía global, el reto será asegurar que grupos completos de estudiantes no estén limitados en el grado al cual ellos están expuestos a niveles altos de aprendizaje de las matemáticas. Una de las implicaciones será la necesidad de que todos los estudiantes estén expuestos a un número balanceado de situaciones problemáticas y tareas que requieran que ellos trabajen las matemáticas a través del espectro completo de “demanda cognitiva” de las matemáticas, una vez que esta se haya considerado apropiada.

The first-mover advantage in scientific publication

Conclusions
In conclusion, the strong first-mover advantage predicted by theories of the scientific citation process seems to be quantitatively substantiated by empirical citation data, at least in some areas. The cynical observer would, it appears, have some justification in concluding that if you want to be well cited you are better off writing the first paper in such an area than writing the best. Other areas, by contrast, show no first-mover effect, which may
be an indication that those areas do not constitute selfcontained research fields as assumed by the theory. And even in cases where the first-mover effect is strong, a small number of later papers do seem buck the trend and attract significant attention in defiance of predictions. We tentatively suggest that the reader looking for true breakthroughs could do worse than keep an eye out for papers such as these.

Supporting Teachers’ Networked Learning Skills for More Online Engagement

Abstract
This article looks into professional networks and their evolution into their current state as blended networks. The eTwinning network, a network of European schools, is described as an example of such a professional network for teachers, where studies from the TellNet project show that many teachers in the online network are isolated. As the eTwinning network wants to evolve into supporting more continuous professional development activities, the current disengagement of members needs to be resolved. Several potential underlying causes for the disengagement are described, as well as an approach to technical support that aims to engage the members in gaining the most from their participation in the network.
