Analysis  of Reasons, Implications and Consequences of Demographic Change 
for IT  Departments in Times of Scarcity of Talent: A Systematic Review 
Olaf  Radant (BearingPoint, Kurfürstendamm, Germany), Ricardo 
Colomo-Palacios (Østfold  University College, Halden, Norway), Vladimir Stantchev (SRH 
Hochschule-Berlin,  Berlin, Germany) 
The  skill shortage is becoming an ever-increasing challenge for IT 
departments.  Allocation of resources in the best possible way is even more 
important. The  challenge is to improve the enterprise not only on the side of the  
organizational and process level, but to develop new strategies and 
approaches  in human resource management. Only a symbiosis of the disciplines 
economics,  psychology and information technology will enable relevant and 
indispensable  employees and promote loyalty to the company. A frequent change of 
the work  place, for a well-trained professional, is so long associated with 
normality  until they find the best environment for fulfilling their needs 
and  expectations. These expectations are no longer just on a financial 
level. This  paper will analyse the previous work on these topics and 
demonstrate first  conclusions regarding a way forward.

Knowledge  Spirals in Higher Education Teaching Innovation 
Ángel  Fidalgo-Blanco (Laboratory of Innovation in Information 
Technologies, Technical  University of Madrid, Madrid, Spain), María Luisa Sein-Echaluce

Spain), Francisco J.  García-Peñalvo (Computer Science Department, University of 
Salamanca, Salamanca,  Spain) 
A  R&I&i process for a knowledge management system development is  
presented. It transforms different institutions experiences into organisational  
knowledge applicable to an entire sector, the higher education one 
specifically.  The knowledge management system allows classifying, organising, 
distributing and  facilitating the application of the knowledge generated by the 
faculty. A study,  with more than 1000 system users, reflects that the system 
helps to the faculty  in the way they perform educational innovation 
activities. The supported model  integrates both Nonaka's epistemological and 
ontological spirals. This allows  defining ontologies and used them in order to 
transform the individual knowledge  into organisational one. The knowledge 
management system encapsulates complex  logic expressions and ontologies 
management, making easy for the users obtaining  successful results that may 
organise in their own way, becoming a powerful  knowledge management process that 
combines epistemological and ontological  knowledge spirals to convert 
individual experiences in educational innovation  into organisational knowledge 
in the higher education sector.

The  Management and Construction of Knowledge as an Innovation Strategy for 
 Collaborative Learning Through the Use and Creation of Learning 
Communities and  Networks 
Marlin  Alicia Aaron Gonzalvez (Universidad de la Guajira, Riohacha, 
Colombia), Oscar  Alonso Castañeda Toledo (Universidad de la Guajira, Riohacha, 
Colombia), Ana  Rosa Ibarra Rodriguez (Universidad de la Guajira, Riohacha, 
This  article aims to approach the importance of a pedagogical strategy for 
 collaborative learning through the use and construction of networks and 
learning  communities directly connected to knowledge management. From my 
experience  within the Networks, Learning Communities and Knowledge Management 
Seminar in  the Masters of Education in the Information Technology and 
Communication  Department at the University of La Guajira, the way members of a 
society  communicate and interact by identifying a qualitative transition 
between the  information society and the knowledge society, in which knowledge 
management in  cyberspace has broken deeply rooted paradigms in the education 
system through  the construction of effective teaching strategies that 
contribute to the  development of processes in different parts of the world, 
contributes to the  creation of virtual learning environments and the 
implementation of pedagogical  strategies such as networking and learning communities 
that reinforce the  collective work and resources that the web 2.0 offers 
in terms of knowledge  management and the development of higher thinking 
abilities. Also, the teacher  changed roles and acted as another member of the 
group, which provoked an  interesting flow of communication.

Adaptation  of Descriptive Metadata for Managing Educational Resources in 
the GREDOS  Repository 
Erla  M. Morales Morgado (Department of Didactic, Organization and Research 
Methods,  University of Salamanca, Salamanca, Spain), Rosalynn A. Campos 
Ortuño (Faculty  of Education, University of Salamanca, Salamanca, Spain), 
Ling Ling Yang  (Department of Foreign Languages, Zhe Jiang University, 
Hangzhou, China),  Tránsito Ferreras-Fernández (Library Services, University of 
Salamanca,  Salamanca, Spain) 
In  this paper the authors describe a Project entitled “Divulgación de 
Recursos  Educativos Digitales (DIRED)” (Divulgation of Digital Educational 
Resources)  addressed to promoting specific educational resources and mobile 
apps for  educational proposals in order to manage them through the 
institutional  repository of the Salamanca University (GREDOS). The authors present a 
proposal  for describing learning objects based on pedagogical information, 
digital  competences and learning styles. The authors also suggest 
educational  information for classifying useful mobile apps. To achieve their suitable 
access  and recovery, the authors focus on the use of Learning Object 
specific metadata  in digital repositories such as LOM (Learning Object 
Metadata). The authors  study the metadata mapping necessary to adapt from LOM to 
Qualified Dublin Core,  because this is the standard used in the GREDOS 
repository built with a DSpace  platform. Finally, the authors present their 
implementation of Learning Object  Description in the GREDOS repository.

Mission  of IJKM: 
The  primary objective of the International Journal of Knowledge  
Management (IJKM) is to  provide a comprehensive cross discipline forum for advancing 
the understanding  of the organizational, technical, human, and cognitive 
issues associated with  the creation, capture, transfer and use of knowledge 
in organizations. The  secondary objective of this Journal is to share 
knowledge among researchers and  practitioners with respect to the design, 
development, implementation and  maintenance of effective knowledge management 
systems. The journal publishes  high quality empirical and theoretical research 
covering all aspects of  knowledge management. In addition to full-length 
research manuscripts, the  journal publishes insightful research and practice 
notes as well as case studies from all areas of knowledge management.
