El uso de las nuevas tecnologías para la enseñanza y el aprendizaje de las ciencias

Guillermina Waldegg Casanova





Resumen


Ante la presencia irreversible de las nuevas tecnologías de información y comunicación (NTIC) en la vida cotidiana, particularmente Internet, es necesario clarificar los diferentes roles y usos que pueden tener en la educación, y revisar y evaluar las principales tendencias en su aplicación escolar. La investigación educativa reciente sobre el uso de las NTIC ha desarrollado una serie de nuevos conceptos y nuevos enfoques que han hecho evolucionar notablemente el campo de la enseñanza y el aprendizaje. Todos estos enfoques tienen en común su pertenencia a corrientes de pensamiento socio-constructivistas. Estos trabajos muestran que las NTIC permiten poner en práctica principios pedagógicos en virtud de los cuales el estudiante es el principal actor en la construcción de sus conocimientos, y que puede aprender mejor en el marco de una acción concreta y significante y, al mismo tiempo, colectiva.
