Knowledge Management, Semantic Web and Logic of Significances to Create Technologic Skills for Support e-Learning Methodologies
International Journal of Information and Education Technology
E-learning prove useful in the interaction between student and teacher regardless of geographical distance, bringing the scope of education to a new dimension and improving the development of nations. However, in developing countries teachers requires strong skill building in science and technology in order to ensure the operation and efficiency of specific e-learning methodologies. In the case of Mexico, researchers are responsible of teaching activities in higher education. This requires
... ing disciplinary schemes, functional structure and generation gaps when it comes to train researchers from the social sciences. That is caused by difficulties to understand the technological function and operation. We understand KM (Knowledge Management) as a strategic process to promote, create and transform the competitive capabilities in all kind of organization through diverse knowledge representations. This is closely linked with the ICT (Information and Communications Technology) because it makes possible to operate KM. We explain the construction process of multidisciplinary links as a Logic of significances based in the Constructivist theory and the web semantic as an instrument for knowledge representation useful to development and analyze these process. From this perspective we propose a methodology to create multidisciplinary links in a researching-teaching group of social and technology to transforms its technological skills and competitive capabilities to use, design and develop e-learning software and methodology. The preliminary result shows the social analysis categories as knowledge representation of the logic of significances of a researching-teaching group who design an e-learning software and the same time a social research instrument.
