Educational Tool for the Qualitative Analysis of Electric Field Phenomenon


Objectives: To propose an alternative didactic of the electrical phenomenon teaching, using Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). Methods: As a methodology for the development of the tool, a prototype-oriented development methodology was used. Findings: The built tool is based on an Augmented Reality system (AR) that uses interactive projections. This system consists of a structure that allows you to view the graphic information that will be projected on a table. The didactic alternative is proposed to meet the teaching-learning difficulties that are presented to guide the phenomenon of electrical fields and as an alternative to the teaching methodologies that emphasize in memorization of concepts. Application: For the use of the tool, some guidelines were developed according to the objectives of each activity. In addition, some questions were proposed to guide student learning and group discussion. It is important to highlight that the results obtained can be used for the development of didactic materials in other areas related to the phenomenon, as well as in other areas of knowledge and fields related to engineering. The tool built is part of the reflection on the didactics of technology, an academic discussion that is part of the doctoral thesis of the author of this document. This paper belongs to an academic discussion that takes part of the doctoral thesis of the first author of this document, under the direction of the second author.
