LACLO Sesión 11: Innovación educativa - innovación pedagógica

  • Playing in the classroom: a game proposal for the flipped classroom. Ecuador

    • Autor(es): Belén Vélez, Gabriela Verdugo, Jaime Veintimilla-Reyes, Magali Mejia and Jorge Maldonado-Mahauad
    • Abstract: Today, gamification is a topic that is taking hold in the educational context. Higher Education Institutions (IES) have maintained the master class as a traditional teaching method, however, thanks to technology, technological teaching tools are being included to transform learning spaces. Therefore, IES have begun to set up new hybrid learning environments, where gamification is sought to motivate and keep students engaged during their learning in and out of the classroom. The aim of this work is to present a game proposal to be adapted in the context of an inverted class. For this, a board game is pro that will include gamification elements. This game will be developed as part of an inverted class proposal, where you seek to maintain the motivation of the students and see its impact on their learning. Finally, the student's usability and experience will be evaluated when applying the gamified game.

  • A Pilot Study on Subtitling Tasks and Projects for Intercultural Awareness and Queer Pedagogy. Perú

    • Autor(es): Iván Villanueva-Jordán and Eliana Gallardo-Echenique
    • Abstract: This paper presents the results of a pilot study on the use of active interlingual subtitling for intercultural awareness and queer pedagogy. The subtitling tasks and project were carried out with Ooona, an online subtitling software, and as part of an optional course on gender and sexuality at an undergraduate university program in Translation and Interpretation. The data collected are based on the Spanish subtitles produced by the students from audiovisual content originally in English, as well as on questionnaires and reports that they completed after subtitling. The results reveal how the audiovisual representation of queer characters allows students to reflect on aspects of the gender/sex system when they must transfer linguistic content that is rooted in different socio-cultural systems.

  • Roads project: the relationship between team roles and their performance. Ecuador

    • Autor(es): Yasmany García-Ramírez
    • Abstract: Belbin's role survey is one of the most used to estimate people's preferred roles when working as a team. This tool has no conclusive results when compared to team performance. Therefore, this research aimed to analyze the relationship between a balanced team based on Belbin's role survey and its performance. Two groups of students participated A (n = 41) and B (n = 25), who took the subject of road project in the Civil Engineering major. The subject was given online due to restrictions by COVID-19. As a result, no relationship was found between the balance of the team's roles and their grades; however, relationships were found between the team grades and the average values of the roles of coordinator and specialist, and three equations were calibrated. In addition, it proposes a new way of distributing students in a team. The study deepens the relationship between Belbin's roles and performance as a team, which will help teachers that are interested in the students developing teamwork skills.

  • UTPLPave: an online software package for pavement structural design in roads using AASHTO-1993 methodology. Ecuador

    • Autor(es): Yasmany García-Ramírez, Luis Santiago Quiñones Cuenca, Yandri José Lalangui Jaramillo, Bryan Wladimir Ramírez Cabrera and Germán Vinicio Roblez Torres
    • Abstract: The pavement structural design of one road is one of the variables that can most influence the cost of construction and maintenance of the pavement. For the design of pavements, one of the most used methodologies in Latin America is the proposal for AASHTO in 1993. Figures, tables, and equations are used in this methodology, which could confuse an inexperienced designer. Therefore, several computer programs have been developed using this methodology, however, they only show the results and not the process to get to these ones. In this context, this study aims to develop software for designing flexible pavements, rigid pavements and overlayer on the flexible pavement, which allows users to observe the procedure carried out by the program. Those individuals programs make up the computational package called UTPLPave, which is a free online version and it was developed using JavaScript libraries in HTML5 and BootStrap. This program can be used as a complementary tool for university education or for updating of knowledge of pavement designers.

  • The effects of presenting a worked example before a sequence of isomorphic problems. Brasil

    • Autor(es): Otávio Azevedo, Felipe de Morais, Tiago Kautzmann and Patricia Jaques
    • Abstract: This study aims at investigating the effects of worked examples when they are shown before a sequence of isomorphic problems in a step-based algebraic Intelligent Tutoring System (ITS). We carried out an experiment with 54 students in a private school from southern Brazil, during six weeks, in which the participants were randomly assigned to a control group (ITS without worked examples) and an experimental group (ITS with worked examples). Although we were not able to find any difference between the learning gain of the control and experimental groups, the analysis of system logs showed that the average time per equation and the average time per solving step was lower (marginally significant) in the experimental group in the course of similar problems. We also found that the students in the experimental group spent less time solving the equations and its steps than students in the control group for the problems that were solved right after the presentation of the worked example. The results showed evidence that the learning efficiency in intelligent tutoring systems can be improved through an approach that presents a worked example at the beginning of a sequence of similar equations, with significant effect in the first equation after the worked example.
