Many research and studies have discussed the importance of understanding and measuring the effectiveness of technology-mediated learning initiatives. Most of the research analyses the effectiveness of such initiatives at the individual level [1, 2]. This research aims to provide insights on the effectiveness of technology-mediated learning (TML) when working in teams. In particular, we intend to investigate whether the usage of “new technologies” might have a beneficial impact on the activities of university students when organized as a team. The “new technologies” considered in the study belong to the following list: blog, e-learning platform, online encyclopaedia, e-mail, online word processing/spreadsheet/presentation software (e.g. Google Docs), smartphone, tablet, gaming console, Internet-connected TV, chat and/or VoIP, Wiki, social network and web hosting/syncing services (e.g. Dropbox). The first results of this research confirm our expectations. Technology allows teams of students to significantly improve their performances on all the dimensions considered.

Abstract

Many research and studies have discussed the importance of understanding and measuring the effectiveness of technology-mediated learning initiatives. Most of the research analyses the effectiveness of such initiatives at the individual level [1, 2]. This research aims to provide insights on the effectiveness of technology-mediated learning (TML) when working in teams. In particular, we intend to investigate whether the usage of “new technologies” might have a beneficial impact on the activities of university students when organized as a team. The “new technologies” considered in the study belong to the following list: blog, e-learning platform, online encyclopaedia, e-mail, online word processing/spreadsheet/presentation software (e.g. Google Docs), smartphone, tablet, gaming console, Internet-connected TV, chat and/or VoIP, Wiki, social network and web hosting/syncing services (e.g. Dropbox). The first results of this research confirm our expectations. Technology allows teams of students to significantly improve their performances on all the dimensions considered.
