%T AINA: Disney Animation Information as Educational Resources
%V 118
%X With the emergence and development of Information
and Communications Technologies (ICTs), Higher Education is
experiencing rapid changes, not only in its teaching strategies but
also in student’s learning skills. However, we have noticed that
students often have difficulty when seeking innovative, useful, and
interesting learning resources for their work. This is due to the
lack of supervision in the selection of good query tools. This paper
presents AINA, an Information Retrieval (IR) computer system aimed
at providing motivating and stimulating content to both students
and teachers working on different areas and at different educational
levels. In particular, our proposal consists of an open virtual resource
environment oriented to the vast universe of Disney comics and
cartoons. Our test suite includes Disney’s long and shorts films,
and we have performed some activities based on the Just In Time
Teaching (JiTT) methodology. More specifically, it has been tested
by groups of university and secondary school students.
