Abstract

Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) are no longer objects gathering dust on a shelf; instead, they have become intrinsic in our everyday lives. They are now even taking on an indispensable role in many clinical and rehabilitation settings. In the past decade there has been a surge of interest in using ICT with elderly people, both with and without dementia, in various clinical and research settings. On the one hand, ICT can supplement the assessment of functional ability by more precisely evaluating the nature and extent of functional impairment; on the other hand, ICT can be used to support elderly people in their everyday activities, as well as to ameliorate symptoms and improve quality of life through stimulation and rehabilitation. This is the intention driving the development of Serious Games (SG), which are digital applications (often based on Virtual Reality) specifically adapted for purposes other than entertaining, including rehabilitation, training and education. Finally, ICT can also play a key role in the development of interactive educational programs to support caregivers of people living with dementia. A handful of interesting studies have started to investigate the effectiveness of employing ICT in people with different types of dementia, such as Alzheimer’s disease (AD). It is therefore timely to attempt to scope this newly emerging field, as well as to foster a dialogue among the different professionals, including academics, clinicians and computer engineers, working in the area. With this in mind, the Research Topic “ICT for assessment and rehabilitation in Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders” aims to provide new and interesting insights into the current use of ICT in healthy and pathological aging. The intent is also to identify challenges and new perspectives in the field, gather recommendations for the application of ICT in AD and related disorders in clinical practice, and to showcase cutting edge clinical research. The articles included in this Frontier Research Topics have more than achieved this aim and are a perfect illustration of how ICT can be used to enhance the lives of people living dementia and their caregivers.

Abstract

The book, after introducing the concept of "digital scholarship" and the interpretative nodes connected to it, retraces the issues related to the implications of the social media usage in the scientific production workflow. A conclusive reflection shifts the attention from technology as a support to the research to tecnology as an object of the research, by introducing digital ethnography and delimiting the ​​discussion area to a specific medium, the multi-user virtual worlds.

Abstract

L’exploitation par le DEPS des enquêtes communautaires sur l’utilisation des TIC par les ménages et les particuliers, coordonnées, harmonisées et publiées par Eurostat, permet de dresser un portrait comparatif et en tendances de l’équipement en TIC, des modes d’accès à l’internet des ménages dans l’UE- 27 selon leurs caractéristiques socio-démographiques. Elle met en lumière l’intensification des usages numériques des particuliers, élucide les facteurs de développement des TIC que sont les usages culturels et le commerce électronique de produits culturels, mais aussi la forte liaison entre accès aux TIC et commerce électronique dans l’Union européenne. Enfin, sont établis des tendances et facteurs d’usages convergents sur l’internet, la télévision et la téléphonie: disponibilité, temps d’usages, générations, praticité, etc. Dans cette cartographie de l’accès et de l’utilisation des TIC dans l’UE, la France occupe une position intermédiaire: plutôt en dessous de la moyenne de l’UE en termes d’accès ou de téléphonie mobile, elle est plutôt au-dessus de cette moyenne en termes d’usages et de commerce électronique.

Abstract

The Internet and online social world have become the intermediaries of contemporary intimacy. Second Life offers exactly that, a ‘second life’, but in the virtual universe. This book delves into the use of this platform to understand the experiences of those who participate in a relationship there. How do communicational tools contribute to the organisation of intimate exchanges? What do these relationships reveal about the experiences of modern romantic liaisons? Drawing on the sociology of couples together with emotions and techniques, this research considers Second Life as both the developer and operator of contemporary intimacy. It addresses a subject at the centre of current affairs with an analysis of relational practises that remains little studied at present.

Abstract

Issue de l’enquête européenne « TIC – Technologies de l’information et de la communication », l’exploitation des données pour la France permet de comparer l’équipement informatique et les usages numériques des Français par rapport à leurs voisins européens. Si l’utilisation quotidienne d’un ordinateur et l’accès à l’internet concernent désormais plus d’un Français sur deux, l’âge et le sexe restent des critères discriminants pour l’usage des nouvelles technologies : les hommes y ont plus recours que les femmes, les jeunes plus que leurs aînés. La communication (messagerie) et les loisirs culturels font partie des activités préférées des usagers de l’internet, tandis que le commerce en ligne et les services, notamment bancaires, se développent depuis 2006. Le déploiement des pratiques nomades est encore émergent. Au plan européen, l’écart est net entre les pays du Nord, fortement équipés et familiers des usages numériques, et les pays du Sud, où l’équipement numérique est plus récent.

Abstract

ca. 200 words; this text will present the book in all promotional forms (e.g. flyers). Please describe the book in straightforward and consumer-friendly terms.[There is ever more research on smart cities and new interdisciplinary approaches proposed on the study of smart cities. At the same time, problems pertinent to communities inhabiting rural areas are being addressed, as part of discussions in contigious fields of research, be it environmental studies, sociology, or agriculture. Even if rural areas and countryside communities have previously been a subject of concern for robust policy frameworks, such as the European Union’s Cohesion Policy and Common Agricultural Policy Arguably, the concept of ‘the village’ has been largely absent in the debate. As a result, when advances in sophisticated information and communication technology (ICT) led to the emergence of a rich body of research on smart cities, the application and usability of ICT in the context of a village has remained underdiscussed in the literature. Against this backdrop, this volume delivers on four objectives. It delineates the conceptual boundaries of the concept of ‘smart village’. It highlights in which ways ‘smart village’ is distinct from ‘smart city’. It examines in which ways smart cities research can enrich smart villages research. It sheds light on the smart village research agenda as it unfolds in European and global contexts.]

Abstract

Mit der IEA-Studie ICILS 2018 (International Computer and Information Literacy Study) werden zum zweiten Mal nach 2013 computer- und informationsbezogene Kompetenzen von Achtklässlerinnen und Achtklässlern im internationalen Vergleich gemessen. Die Studie liefert damit ein aktuelles Bild über den Stand der digitalen Bildung in Deutschland. In diesem Band werden zudem erstmals empirisch basiert Aussagen zu Entwicklungen über einen mehrjährigen Zeitraum präsentiert. Ebenfalls erstmalig werden im Rahmen eines internationalen Zusatzmoduls Befunde zum Kompetenzbereich ‚Computational Thinking‘ vorgelegt, der das Lösen von Problemen und den kompetenten Umgang mit algorithmischen Strukturen anspricht.Über die detaillierte Erfassung der Rahmenbedingungen auf Schul-, Lehrer- und Schülerebene sowie aus der Perspektive der Schulleitungen und der IT-Koordinatorinnen und -Koordinatoren ergibt sich ein Gesamtbild über technologische und pädagogische Entwicklungen in Deutschland im internationalen Vergleich. Ergebnisse zu zentralen Hintergrundmerkmalen der Schülerinnen und Schüler sowie zu Schulformunterschieden ergänzen die Befunde. Der Band liefert so Informationen zur (Weiter-)Entwicklung von Schule und Unterricht sowie zur Lehrerprofessionalisierung im Kontext digitaler Transformationsprozesse.

Abstract

This Open Access book summarizes the key findings from the second cycle of IEA’s International Computer and Information Literacy Study (ICILS), conducted in 2018. ICILS seeks to establish how well schools around the globe are responding to the need to provide young people with the necessary digital participatory competencies. Effective use of information and communication technologies (ICT) is an imperative for successful participation in an increasingly digital world. ICILS 2018 explores international differences in students’ computer and information literacy (CIL), namely their ability to use computers to investigate, create, and communicate at home, at school, in the workplace, and in the community. Participating countries also had an option to administer an assessment of students’ computational thinking (CT), focused on their ability to recognize aspects of real-world problems appropriate for computational formulation, and to evaluate and develop algorithmic solutions to those problems, so that the solutions could be operationalized with a computer. The data collected by ICILS 2018 show how digital competencies can be assessed using instruments representing authentic contexts for ICT use, and how students’ CIL and CT skills relate to school learning experiences, out-of-school contexts, and student characteristics. Those data also show how learning technologies are used in classrooms around the world. Background questionnaires asked students about their use of ICT, and collected information from teachers, schools, and national education systems about the resourcing and teaching of CIL (and CT) within their countries. The results of ICILS 2018 will enable policymakers and education systems to develop a better understanding of the contexts and outcomes of CIL (and CT) education programs.
