The journal welcomes research articles, critical reflection articles, systematic review articles, book reviews, and proposals for the publication of Special Issues. The journal is peer-reviewed (double-blind) and publishes papers written in Spanish, Portuguese and English.</p> </div> en-US <p>Those authors who publish in this journal accept the following terms:</p> <ol> <li class="show">Authors will keep the moral right of the work and they will transfer the commercial rights.</li> <li class="show">After <strong>1 year</strong> from publication, the work shall thereafter <strong>be</strong><strong> open access </strong>online on our website, but will retain copyright.</li> <li class="show">In the event that the authors wish to assign an <a href="https://creativecommons.org/about/cclicenses/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Creative Commons</a> (CC) license, they may request it by writing to <a href="mailto:publishing@gkacademics.com">publishing@gkacademics.com</a></li> </ol> publishing@gkacademics.com (Equipo editorial) publishing@gkacademics.com (Equipo de soporte) Wed, 13 Jul 2022 11:59:56 +0200 OJS 3.3.0.8 http://blogs.law.harvard.edu/tech/rss 60 Evolution of Project Management in the Digital Economy https://journals.eagora.org/revTECHNO/article/view/3233 <p>The great changes caused by the Fourth Industrial Revolution, also known as Digital Transformation, are happening very fast. We are living a new reality of Digital Economy, where technological innovation has a great impact on how projects are managed. This article has the objective to identify what Project Managers appropriate profile should be in order to face this new reality, taking advantage of using new digital technologies to increase the probability of projects' success and contribute with added value to the economy, the environment, and society. It is also presented the model proposed by Green Project Management, oriented to sustainability, and is also emphasized the importance of identifying the best approach to follow in the development of a new project in this Digital Economy era, knowing that besides the traditional predictive and agile approaches, there are rising new hybrid approaches, gathering the positive characteristics of the both of them.</p> António Cabeças Copyright (c) 2022 TECHNO REVIEW.

It stresses the ambivalent role that technology plays in her thought. Arendt affirms, on the one hand, the political neutrality of technology; but, on the other hand, she foresees that the future modification of the human condition, thanks to technology, could lead to a stage of such passivity that humanity abandons itself to an endless vital process in which a properly human world is no longer possible.</p> Julián García Labrador Copyright (c) 2022 TECHNO REVIEW.

However, it is often difficult to understand what this term is meant to describe. I examine the claims of two movements that use this term: transhumanism and posthumanism. These movements are presented in the context of humanism. Both movements present how technologies are changing human autonomy and how posthuman beings arise out of this change. I formalise and critique these accounts of the posthuman. I conclude that neither movement adequately explains the transition from the human to the posthuman.</p> Jaroslav Malík Copyright (c) 2022 TECHNO REVIEW.

This research follows a quasi-experimental design with pre-tests and post-tests comparing the influence on cognitive and affective variables of a STEM practice versus an academic-expositional methodology in secondary school. The results show statistically significant differences between groups, concluding that it is essential to select active and practical methodologies that integrate scientific-technological knowledge, fostering the development of positive emotions and the ability to learn.</p> Guadalupe Martínez-Borreguero, Francisco Javier Cámara Acedo, Milagros Mateos Núñez, Francisco Luis Naranjo Correa Copyright (c) 2022 TECHNO REVIEW.

For this, we use the data provided by the LMS (access virtual classroom) and the university's academic management system (grades). For that, we perform various classification machine learning algorithms to predict academic performance with two classes SATISFACTORY or POOR where Gradient Boosted Trees algorithm had the best accuracy 91.79%. However, with three classes, SATISFACTORY, REGULAR AND POOR, Random Forest algorithm had the best accuracy of 89.26%.</p> <p> </p> Edgar Aurelio Taya-Acosta, Hugo Manuel Barraza-Vizcarra, Ruth de Jesus Ramirez-Rejas, Edgar Taya-Osorio Copyright (c) 2022 TECHNO REVIEW.
