Last September 17th 2013, the researchers Adolfo Ruiz-Calleja, Guillermo Vega-Gorgojo, Juan I. Asensio-Pérez, Eduardo Gómez-Sánchez and Miguel L. Bote-Lorenzo, from the Universidad de Valladolid, and Carlos Alario-Hoyos, from the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M), all collaborating with the Spanish National Project EEE, were awarded with the third prize in the Veni Competition organized by the Linked Up Project, as well as the People's Choice award of this same competition.
These awards were granted for We-Share, a social annotation application for educational ICT tools. This application allows educators both to publish and retrieve educational descriptions of ICT tools and to share their experience using them in their classrooms. The jury underlined the innovation of We-Share in the learning domain and its capability to relate non-educational data from the Web to educational-specific one published by educators.
In addition, the authors were invited to present We-Share in the Open Education Panel Session held at OKCon in Geneva, as well as to present a poster in this same conference. There were over 100 attendees and the authors obtained a valuable feedback about their research.
