by Villamizar Carrillo, Laura Patricia

Abstract (Summary)
ABSTRACT The main goal of this research is to propose a set of ICT formation strategies for two groups of teachers who belong to the Electronics, Electrics,Telecommunications and Systems Engineering Department of University of Pamplona in Colombia and to the Electronics, Automatic and Informatics Engineering Department of Rovira and Virgili University in Tarragona, Spain. These strategies are based on the application of the Let Me Learn® learning system. The specific objectives are: To create or adapt and to apply methodological instruments to know the use and importance that our case studies teachers and students give to the ICTs; To apply the Learning Connections Inventory from Let Me Learn® to teachers and students of the case studies; To analyse the results obtained from the application of the instruments about the use and importance of the ICTs and about the Let Me Learn® learning patterns for teachers and students of the case studies; To carry out a comparative approach between the two case studies about the results obtained from the application of the methodological instruments; To produce a set of ICTs formation strategies for the teachers in our case studies based on Let Me Learn® learning system. Generally speaking, this system has a theory, the interactive learning model and a validated instrument called the LCI (Learning Connections Inventory). This instrument has been validated and used with more than 40.000 people since 1998. This system presents several advantages for the knowledge of the learning processes adopted by individuals and it is used as a tool to discover the reasons teachers have to use or not the technological resources in their professional activity. The author of this research is by herself a teacher in the Engineering Faculty at University of Pamplona in Colombia. The data collection is made through two questionnaires to know the use and importance that teachers and students of the case studies give to ICTs and an inventory to know their Let Me Learn® learning patterns combination. Finally, a ICTs formation plan, based on Let Me Learn®, is presented as well as some conclusions and the future of this research. The methodology used has a mixed nature: quantitative in the sense of the description of ICTs used by teachers and the learning patterns and qualitative through the case study analysis (Colombia and Spain) and the proposal of formation strategies.
