In the current teaching context, where students work and require flexible time, E-learning is presented as a didactic proposal which adapts to the time and abilities of students and which, at the same time challenges traditional teaching modalities. In an interview with Argentina Investiga, Marcela Chiarani, specialist in Computing Sciences oriented to education, states that “virtual environments facilitate to make a follow up of students”.
Computing attacks are more and more frequent. They put at risk companies and public government organisms’ security. Through specialized malicious programs, these attacks cause serious problems which go from the access to secret State information to the interruption of a country’s bank system. In a study about Computing Security, specialists recommend to assume technological challenges to prevent the risks.
The proposal of a group of researchers is to debate with the different actors of the University the signs which identify it. The design of the proposal, which points to build identity signs, will show all the institutional voices and will consider its recent creation and the commitment to the region. Besides, it will reflect its quality of modern university, in terms of the offer of new careers and its objective to contribute to the regional development.

Mathematicians and researchers from the UNGS, Antonio Cafure and Gabriel Larotonda, promote a different view of the discipline “in an academic system worried about following productivity measurement logics”. The third position involves an overcoming view of the formative and didactic paradigms and combines the research, teaching and applications through the recognition that mathematics has ideology.
Behavioral Finance is a new research area and emerges as an answer to the predominating paradigm of the so called ‘Traditional Financial Theory’. It is based in the Homo Economicus paradigm, which supposes a market lead by rational agents, which make impartial decisions and maximize their own interest. The new theory proposes a change in the paradigm as it supposes a more realistic economic agent, lead by the interaction between rationality and emotions.
Researchers from the Department of Economic Sciences carried out an analysis which makes enquiries about the different paradigms which prevail along the history until the current model during the nineties. The teachers analyzed the changes that the rules and “what should be” present in the economic conception of a system, as well as the rationality and political and social thought of an epoch.
Whereas in the eighties the prevalent problem or pathology was children malnutrition, after the nineties and nowadays the problem is overweight and obesity in children. An analysis of the nutritional status of children population in Catamarca determined that, in keeping with the global transition of the traditional eating habits and the changes in lifestyle there is a new nutritional paradigm in the children of the province.
In an interview to InfoUniversidades, the director of the Regional Institute for Planning and Habitat, Mirta Romero, warned about a change of paradigm in the preparation for a seism, which includes the concepts of functional and social and organizational vulnerability. When asked about the conclusions of what happened in Chile she stated: “It is a warning, because we will have an earthquake, we don’t know when, but it is going to happen and we have to be prepared to act”.
Según un estudio de la UNCuyo, el paradigma de la educación que diferencia al “docente” del “alumno” ya no funciona y sólo contribuye a generar más rechazo hacia el sistema educativo. Proponen una formación más política de los docentes para que puedan leer la realidad de sus alumnos. Según la investigación, las normativas escolares son experimentadas por los alumnos como un modo de violencia o amenaza, en tanto que naturalizan formas de relación violenta con sus pares porque lo consideran como un modo de “comunicarse”. El equipo de investigación rompe con el enfoque tradicional sobre la problemática, identificando como un actor más de la violencia escolar al propio sistema educativo.
La actividad se desarrolla entre la Universidad Nacional de la Patagonia San Juan Bosco y la Escuela 760 de Comodoro Rivadavia, donde estudiantes y docentes de Ingeniería realizan esta novedosa propuesta didáctica.
