Resumen


Este estudio tuvo como propósito investigar sobre algunos factores que podrían estar relacionados con el grado en el cual las habilidades desarrolladas por docentes en servicio, durante un curso de computación, son o no transferidas al aula. El curso estuvo orientado al uso pedagógico de la computadora, incluyendo el diseño de actividades centradas en el estudiante. Los datos recogidos un año académico posterior a la finalización del curso revelaron niveles de transferencia muy diferentes. El estudio examinó el efecto sobre el grado de implementación de las actividades centradas en el estudiante, que tienen variables tales como edad, evaluación personal de la capacitación, acceso a computadora en el hogar, actitudes hacia la computadora, experiencia con computadoras y autoeficacia percibida. Los resultados mostraron que la autoeficacia percibida fue el principal predictor del nivel de implementación en el aula de actividades apoyadas en la computadora.

Palabras clave


Formación del profesorado en servicio; comprensión de la computación; actitud del docente; comportamiento del docente.
