English abstract

This paper is part of a doctoral research study about the integration of social media in a learning experience and the roles that information literacy, digital literacy, and new literacies may play in such integration. A pilot study was conducted and the final empirical study took place in April 2013. The methodological approach used is participatory action research (PAR) and following its logic as well as the results of the pilot study, the research and methodological framework labeled as ‘Doing Online Relearning through Information Skills’ (DORIS) was developed. This framework comprises a series of learning interventions, activities, and assignments. This paper provides early data analysis focusing on: a) its particular epistemological assumptions and supporting theories, b) the overall mutual shaping perspective assumed, and c) some of the possible contributions such study can offer to information literacy research and practice.
