JARAMILLO MARIN, Patricia Elena  and  RUIZ QUIROGA, Mónica. A case of integration of Information and Communication Technologies that does not add value to learning. Rev.latinoam.cienc.soc.niñez juv [online]. 2009, vol.7, n.1, pp.267-287. ISSN 1692-715X.

A few qualitative studies provide information about the integration of Information and Communication Technologies (TIC) into higher education. This article corresponds to one of the 17 case studies carried out in a research to know about this phenomenon more deeply and to identify the learning process of the students who participated in it. The data was collected from nonparticipant class observations to the classes in an academic semester, semi-structured interviews to the teacher and interviews and targeted groups with students. Additionally the works of the students were analyzed with the support of TIC's. The data was analyzed with common deductive and inductive categories that were common to all the cases and was finally contextualized. The case described in this article talks about the learning environment constructed by 16 students and their professor, where she coherently integrated the TIC with her pedagogical strategy but did not add value to the learning process. The description presents behavior patterns, conceptions and pedagogical practices that other teachers can use as elements to make decisions about how to design their learning environments with TIC and to motivate them to reflect on their own pedagogical practices.

Keywords : Teaching/learning strategies; pedagogical issues; ICT in education; case study.
