Giuseppe Città, Manuel Gentile, Mario Allegra, Marco Arrigo, Daniela Conti, Simona Ottaviano, Francesco Reale, Marinella Sciortino
2019 Computers & Education  
A B S T R A C T Although several investigations of spatial reasoning and mental rotation skills have been conducted in research areas linked to STEM education, to the best of our knowledge, few of these studies have examined the relationship between spatial reasoning and computational thinking. Given this gap in the literature, the present study investigates the role and action of spatial reasoning, and specifically the effects of mental rotation on computational thinking within an embodied and

Analyzing Creativity in the Light of Social Practice Theory

Giuseppe Città, Manuel Gentile, Agnese Augello, Simona Ottaviano, Mario Allegra, Frank Dignum
2019 Frontiers in Psychology  
In this work, starting from the social practice theory, we identified two kinds of creativity: a situational creativity that takes place when, starting from a defined situation, a social practice is played; and a creativity of habit that concerns the agents' capacity for generating new practices from habit when the situation is not defined or is unexpected. To test this hypothesis, the Torrance Test of Creative Thinking (Verbal Form A) was analyzed in the light of praxeology, and the results

Tercerización Laboral en Argentina: Antecedentes, Contexto Regional y Propuesta de Regulación Integral

ETCHEMENDY, Sebastián, GIANIBELLI, Guillermo, OTTAVIANO, Juan Manuel
2019 Trabajo y Sociedad  
Existe hoy en Argentina un cuerpo importante de estudios sobre el impacto de la tercerización laboral en distintos sectores de la economía y en los trabajadores. Sin embargo, los estudios realizados desde la sociología del trabajo, y los análisis y propuestas regulatorias realizadas desde ámbitos institucionales y jurídicos, han corrido por carriles separados. El objetivo principal de este estudio es complementar ambos enfoques. Tomando como insumo los análisis recientes desde la sociología

An Agent Based approach to design Serious Game

Manuel Gentile, Dario La Guardia, Valentina Dal Grande, Simona Ottaviano, Mario Allegra
2014 International Journal of Serious Games  
Serious games are designed to train and educate learners, opening up new learning approaches like exploratory learning and situated cognition. Despite growing interest in these games, their design is still an artisan process. On the basis of experience in designing computer simulation, this paper proposes an agent-based approach to guide the design process of a serious game. The proposed methodology allows the designer to bring forward the assessment of educational effectiveness to the design

To this end, an agent based approach is proposed because it provides the actors involved in designing the game with specific tools and guidelines for determining whether the proposed model is clear and comprehensible to the students. The design of the PNPVillage game is used as a case study. The PNPVillage game aims to introduce and foster an entrepreneurial mindset among young students. It was implemented within the framework of the European project "I can... I cannot... I go!" Rev.2 Further analysis is needed to obtain a complete validation of the effectiveness of the PNPVillage game, to improve both students' knowledge and entrepreneurial skills.

This document presents the results of the second evaluation and validation iteration of the CAPABLE prototypes as defined in previous deliverable D7.1. In this validation process, an updated version of the WP6 prototype has been evaluated applying the two methods presented in D7.1: Interviews with patients and relatives. These interviews aimed to collect feedback from the end-users of the Patient App: melanoma and kidney cancer patients during the treatment phase. Given the broader

Overall, 17 patients and 2 caregivers have been interviewed. Interviews with healthcare professionals (HCPs). These interviews aimed to collect overall feedback about both doctors' and patients' solutions, understand if the clinical and patients' needs are covered, and revise the core functionalities that have been proposed in the current prototype. A total of 11 health professionals have been interviewed. We present the results of the 2 executed studies. The protocols of each study are attached in the annex. The document also presents the general conclusions from these validation activities and the next steps to follow in the future developments in order to satisfy the user experience needs found in this process.

2020 medRxiv   pre-print
Introduction - Thanks to improvement of care, cancer has become a chronic condition. But due to the toxicity of treatment, the importance of supporting the quality of life (QoL) of cancer patients increases. Monitoring and managing QoL relies on data collected by the patient in his/her home environment, its integration, and its analysis, which supports personalization of cancer management recommendations. We review the state-of-the-art of computerized systems that employ Data Science methods to
more » ... monitor the health status and provide support to cancer patients managed at home. Objective - Our main objective is to analyze the literature to identify open research challenges that a novel decision support system for cancer patients and clinicians will need to address, point to potential solutions, and provide a list of established best-practices to adopt. Methods - We designed a review study, in compliance with the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) guidelines, analyzing studies retrieved from PubMed related to monitoring cancer patients in their home environments via sensors and self-reporting: what data is collected, what are the techniques used to collect data, semantically integrate it, infer the patient state from it and deliver coaching/behavior change interventions. Results - Starting from an initial corpus of 819 unique articles, a total of 180 papers were considered in the full-text analysis and 110 were finally included in the review. Our findings are organized and presented in four main sub-topics consisting of data collection, data integration, predictive modeling and patient coaching. Conclusion - Development of modern decision support system for cancer needs to utilize best practices like the use of validated electronic questionnaires for quality of life assessment, adoption of appropriate information modeling standards supplemented by terminologies/ontologies, adherence to FAIR data principles, external validation, stratification of patients in subgroups for better predictive modeling, and adoption of formal behavior change theories. Open research challenges include supporting emotional and social dimensions of well-being, including PROs in predictive modeling, and providing better customization of behavioral interventions for the specific population of cancer patients.
