    Telework has grown exponentially due to COVID-19, and has revealed itself as a useful work condition with a largely positive impact on employees' well-being. Since many variables are involved in determining the relationships between telework and well-being, this paper clarifies the role of teleworkability, employees' preference for telework, and telework intensity; specifically, how the first two variables impact on well-being through telework intensity. A systematic review was carried out between 2012 and 2022 to analyze how these variables relate. Scarce literature connecting these subjects showed that teleworkability and the preference for telework influence the amount of time employees wish to telework. Teleworkability and preference for telework need to be studied from a multilevel perspective since country-, company-, and individual-level characteristics impact on them. The results also confirmed that telework intensity establishes direct relationships with well-being, and it is essential to predict it. Hybrid work emerged as a new concept which captures the best combination between on-site work and telework. Based on their employees' preferences, companies can introduce hybrid-work flexible programs to maximize its positive effects on well-being as well as being able to re-design their jobs to better fit their employees' levels of telework expectations.

    Little is known about how teacher professional development helps enhance collective teacher efficacy so as to improve student performance. The present systematic review addresses two research questions, first by identifying 583 studies that may contribute pertinent information and then by performing in-depth analysis to eliminate those that did not meet our inclusion and quality criteria. After analyzing 18 studies, the results of this review confirm the impact of collective efficacy on student performance and highlight the importance of the role of principals in fostering a culture of trust and collaboration among school administrators and teaching staff.

    This article aims to point out how school autonomy helps principals reach higher quality by increasing flexibility in three areas: pedagogy, organization and management. Autonomy leads to an improvement in student performance and, consequently, in educational quality. A theoretical framework based on literature review and PISA results is followed by a qualitative field study with school management teams in Spain. The study questions how far goes real autonomy in pedagogical, organizational and management issues of the schools. Data from 12 Spanish schools are collected by using a questionnaire made ad hoc to assess the three mentioned areas of flexibility. Results show that flexibility for pedagogy, organization and management is very limited in the Spanish schools consulted, coinciding with minimal autonomy granted to these areas by current Spanish legislation on education. The main conclusion reached is that management teams have a key role in promoting autonomy when governments confer it to schools. In accordance with this aim, teacher and management team training is crucial. Broadening the study by data triangulation with other members of the school community (teachers, students and families) is proposed.

    As a result of the rapid and unplanned adoption of telework by European companies during the pandemic, specific telework characteristics have arisen. Thus, employees' experience of telework requires further analysis. Based on the Living, Working, and COVID-19 results for Baltic countries, this paper studies the effect of telework experience on wellbeing, both directly and mediated by Work-Life balance and job satisfaction, through structural equation modelling. After verifying the significant differences in telework preferences, the model is also tested in high versus low telework preference groups. The main findings corroborate the effect of a positive telework experience on perceived wellbeing, but only indirectly via Work-Life balance. Additionally, data from the group with a high telework preference best fits the proposed model, revealing not only the mentioned indirect effect, but also the direct positive effect of telework experience on wellbeing. Thus, employees with a negative experience of telework during the pandemic will be more reluctant to accept telework over more traditional work arrangements. The implications as well as some limitations to be examined in further studies are also presented.

    Because we work in teams more than ever, we should craft them fostering team members' motivation, wellbeing, and performance. To that aim, we propose a multi-level model explaining the emergence of team burnout, articulating the interplay between individual and team level mechanisms around ten empirically testable research propositions. Drawing from the JD-R theory, we formulated an emergence model of team burnout by combining team effectiveness and occupational health literatures. Our model explains how cycles of attention, information integration, and information-affect sharing on burnout cues foster the emergence of team burnout. It also explains how team burnout moderates the relationship between team structural variables and team members' burnout and how team burnout impairs team effectiveness through co-regulatory mechanisms. This model is timely because it addresses the importance of team burnout through a systematic effort connecting individual and team levels in explaining its emergence and the mechanisms through which it impairs team effectiveness.

    The objective of this article is to analyse the potential of ComunicARTE, an innovative Spanish Language teaching/learning program that uses project-based learning to develop dialogic spaces which promote the communicative competence of Spanish students, together with social, emotional and motivational outcomes. Two schools have been observed with this in mind: an experimental one using this program and a control one. This is a longitudinal study with pre-and post-test data which analyses 170 children at the beginning of their fifth year and the end of their sixth year in primary school. Quantitative tests have been used to assess their communicative competence and motivational orientation in the classroom. The results obtained are discussed.

    The Teachers' Sense of Efficacy Scale (TSES) has been the most widely used instrument to assess teacher efficacy beliefs. However, no study has been carried out concerning the TSES psychometric properties with teachers in Mexico, the country with the highest number of Spanish-speakers worldwide. The purpose of the present study is to examine the reliability, internal and external validity evidence of the TSES (short form) adapted into Spanish with a sample of 190 primary and secondary Mexican teachers from 25 private schools. Results of construct analysis confirm the three-factor-correlated structure of the original scale. Criterion validity evidence was established between self-efficacy and job satisfaction. Differences in self-efficacy were related to teachers' gender, years of experience and grade level taught. Some limitations are discussed, and future research directions are recommended.

    Participation in organized Extracurricular Activities has contributed to improve academic achievement. However, this does not happen in the same way; it depends on sex, age, or parental educational level. Our objective is to know the importance of these factor interactions¿ in the explanation of academic achievement. The sample consisted of 1148 adolescents, aged between 12 and 18 years, 52% of whom were female. Participants completed the Extracurricular Activities questionnaire, and academic and sociodemographic data were collected. The results show that differences in academic achievement depend on the adolescent stage. In early adolescence, girls improve in academic achievement, as well as with better parental education, reading of books and activity duration. On the contrary, in the middle and late adolescence, academic achievement improves with not participating in collective sports and reduced activity breadth, although parental educational level follows the same trend as in the early adolescence. These results reinforce the evolutionary hypothesis of specialization in the choice of activities throughout adolescence. In this sense, some proposals for schools that advocate for greater integration of curricular and non-curricular elements are discussed.

    In recent years, collective teacher efficacy has been presented as a promising factor in improving student performance (Donohoo, 2017; Eells, 2011; Hattie, 2016). However, unlike self-efficacy beliefs, collective teacher efficacy has been studied much less. Hence, this systematic literature mapping seeks to deepen the development and study of the collective efficacy beliefs of teachers in the academic field, with the objective of understanding and synthesizing the information of various investigations regarding the subject in question. Through the methodology of systematic mapping, a total of 60 potential studies published between 2000 and 2019 and indexed in the Scopus and Web of Science databases were found. After the application of the inclusion and exclusion criteria, 35 studies were included in the present investigation. The results show the geographical distribution of the studies, the most frequently cited articles, the variables related to collective teacher efficacy, the instruments used to evaluate these beliefs, and the educational levels in which they have been studied. There is a clear interest in the study regarding the impact of collective teacher efficacy on student learning and performance. However, there is a lack of research on this subject in Spanish-speaking countries, as well as research focused on the promotion and development of collective teacher efficacy. This study concludes with a proposal for future lines of research.

    Social work professionals have to confront an increasingly strenuous job context (e.g., more users into the system, budgetary cuts, increasing bureaucracy, etc.), and these changes added to their interest in social justice turn their job into a very demanding one. Furthermore, over the few last years, organizational justice has produced a great deal of research, although not in this particular discipline. Based on the Job Demands and Resources theory (JD-R), this paper analyses (1) the direct relationships of job demands (Demands) and organizational justice (Resource) on job satisfaction and on counterproductive behaviour, and (2) the buffering effect of organizational justice as a resource, on the relationship between job demands and job satisfaction, and between job demands and counterproductive behaviour. The sample is made up of 213 social work professionals from various Spanish regions (198 female and mean-age 40.56 years old). Hierarchical regression equations showed that more than job demands, it is organizational justice which is the variable that exerts the highest influence on results (satisfaction and counterproductive behaviour). Specifically, organizational justice explains a great deal of the variance on job satisfaction (40%). Justice also impacts on counterproductive behaviour, both directly as well as reducing the negative effect of high demands. These findings are important both from the theoretical and applied perspectives, since these underline the key rol

    Although the negative effects of mobile instant messaging have been stressed, its exponential increment justifies studying its application in education. This paper analyses whether college¿ students perception of WhatsApp usefulness influences cognitive processes important for teamwork (i.e., specialization and coordination), specifically for complex decision-making assignments. Additionally, it seeks to clarify to what extent the relationship between perception of WhatsApp usefulness and these cognitive processes could exert some influence on team efficacy, both perceived and objective (grades). For that purpose, a role-play was specifically designed in which WhatsApp played a mayor function as a communication tool. A sample of university students (N¿=¿200) worked in teams to reach decisions. A student in each team was set apart all team members could only communicate through WhatsApp. Findings confirm the relationships between perceived WhatsApp usefulness and specialization and coordination, as well as perceived WhatsApp usefulness and perceived team efficacy. Both the role-play case designed and results obtained are relevant since show that WhatsApp could be applied as a communication tool in team activities, due to the fact that the perception of its usefulness could help to develop positive attitudes towards teamwork (i.e., team perceived efficacy). From an applied perspective WhatsApp could be used for virtual teamwork through, for example, the proposed role-play case.

    Esta investigación incorpora desde la neuropsicología los conocimientos sobre el proceso madurativo propio del adolescente con el fin de aportar nuevas orientaciones para tratar aspectos emocionales en contextos educativos. A partir del marco teórico expuesto se realiza un estudio sobre la impulsividad y las creencias (fija o incremental) durante el aprendizaje en una muestra de 60 alumnos de primer curso de educación secundaria (11-12 años). Por otro lado, los profesores de los alumnos evaluaron a los mismos en: motivación, la tranquilidad y serenidad en clase, el autocontrol, la acogida de las correcciones, la constancia en la realización de sus trabajos y los partes (reportes) de disciplina escolar. Los resultados señalan una relación significativa y favorable para el aprendizaje entre la baja impulsividad y la mentalidad incremental del alumnado con la mayoría de las conductas observadas por sus profesores. Se estudia también la existencia de un perfil favorable para el aprendizaje (baja impulsividad y mentalidad incremental). Se concluye con la necesidad de abordar las dificultades del aprendizaje de forma conjunta e interactivamente para darle un tratamiento más global y ajustado a la realidad del alumnado.

    Libro: Multidisciplinary approaches to crowdfunding platforms
    ISSN: 978-179983228-7 2021 págs. 109 - 133
    This chapter compares two national crowdfunding markets based on their platforms and regulatory legislation on crowdfunding. Spain and France were selected though a cluster analysis since both differ on those characteristics. Mean comparison tests were carried out to estimate differences. Data were based on a survey specifically designed and conductedfor this research. While crowdfunding is an internet-powered activity with global accessibility, national boundaries and geographic proximity play a significant role in shaping the performance of crowdfunding platforms. Regarding practical implications, as each country developed its specific legislation, it is concluded that this legislation may boost or hinder the growth of crowdfunding. On the other hand, the different way platforms managed their business does not affect their outcomes in terms of number of projects and funds raised. As a result, although platforms are indispensable as an intermediate agent between funders and investors, they determine neither the number of projects hosted nor the funds raised.

    Este libro se acabó de escribir el 13 de junio de 2020, tres meses después de que la Universidad de Navarra se viera obligada a cerrar sus aulas por la pandemia de la Covid-19. Como el resto de universidades, tuvo que afrontar un desafío extraordinario e inédito en sus 68 años de vida. En apenas un fin de semana, del 13 al 15 de marzo, sus 1.140 profesores y 11.988 estudiantes de Grado, Máster y Doctorado se recluyeron en sus casas ante la expansión de la enfermedad. Con gran determinación, profesores y estudiantes continuaron sus clases en remoto gracias a la tecnología disponible y a una responsabilidad ejemplar. Estas páginas son un ejercicio de memoria para no olvidar las lecciones de unos meses muy intensos, en los que casi cada día era preciso hacer frente a un nuevo desafío, resolver inquietudes, y marcar el rumbo con unas prioridades previamente establecidas. La monografía sirve de homenaje a los hombres y mujeres que con tanto esfuerzo y acierto hicieron de la Universidad de Navarra un lugar excelente para estudiar, también en tiempos de incertidumbre.
