El impacto de un programa de enfoque socioconstructivista en las actitudes de futuros profesores de primaria sobre el aprendizaje y la enseñanza en general y sobre las matemáticas en particular

  • Bernardita Tornero Ochagavia Universidad de los Andes


Los programas de Aceleración Cognitiva (AC) han logrado promover exitosamente el desarrollo de habilidades de razonamiento en estudiantes escolares y, al mismo tiempo, han cambiado las prácticas pedagógicas de los profesores en ejercicio que han implementado dichos programas en sus aulas. El aporte de este estudio es que utilizó por primera vez este enfoque socio-constructivista de enseñanza con futuros profesores durante su proceso de formación inicial docente. Los resultados encontrados sugieren que el programa de aceleración cognitiva impulsó cambios positivos en las actitudes de los participantes sobre el aprendizaje y la enseñanza en general y sobre las matemáticas en particular.
