CORNELIO RAMOS, José Miguel. Cooperative use of Facebook in text planning at university. Cuad. Investig. Educ. [online]. 2021, vol.12, n.2, pp.23-40.  Epub Dec 01, 2021. ISSN 1510-2432.

The purpose of this research was to analyze the results on the cooperative use of Facebook resulted from a performance test carried out in order to plan the academic texts on writing schemes. The subject consisted in Writing Levelling at the Technological University of Peru (UTP), where two working groups were studied: each group was made up of 25 students. The design of this research was quasi-experimental and quantitative. The sampling was non-probabilistic for convenience. The data collection instrument consisted in a three-dimensional rubric: content, structure and formulation. The data processed through SPSS-25 (Statistical Package for Social Sciences v. 25) showed that in the study, for the mean obtained in the post-test, an Outstanding level was reached in respect of the Standard level in the control group. With this, it was found that students of the experiment managed to use ideas that are pertinent, sufficient and in accordance with the topic chosen. In the same way, those students managed to write the ideas correctly and to order them hierarchically in the elaboration of the writing scheme, through cooperative and autonomous work -an aspect that under regular conditions is difficult to develop. For this reason, this research recommended said university to implement non-institutional platforms such as social networks -student-friendly ones- for their Writing courses, especially such social networks that are open to education, not only as repositories of information and consultation, but also as an integral part of the methodology of teaching writing.
