Digital education content proposal ph d 2014 may

  1. 1. PhD proposal: Digital Educational Content-DEC in Technology and Educational Robotic por Teacher Alexandra Sierra Rativa profealexandrasierra@gmail.com a.sierra65@uniandes.edu.co Bogota, Colombia
  2. 2. 1 VIDEO MASTER PROPOSAL OF EDUCATIONAL ROBOTICS: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_zun6TWwJT0 SUMMARY CVLAC: My name is Alexandra Sierra Rativa. I have 28 years, I am from Colombia. I have a bachelor of electronic of the National Pedagogical University in Colombia; I am magister in education from the University of the Andes in Colombia. I was honored by South Korea for the best project of educational robotics (I used Arduino and software S4A) at the school level of the capital of Colombia in 2012 and I was training in Information Technologies and Communication-ICT in Incheon, South Korea. I was training in English at the University of East Anglia in England, from July to November 2013, reaching level B1. I agree to have the English level of IELTS 6.5 for August 2014. EXPERIENCE WORK: I am currently a professor of technology at the school level of the Secretary of Education of Bogota Colombia, for over 3 years. In 2012, I was Professor of Robotics in the Cooperative University of Colombia. In 2009, I was working in the area of postgraduate courses at the National Pedagogical University
  3. 3. 2 Working Title: DIGITAL EDUCATIONAL CONTENT-DEC IN TECHNOLOGY AND EDUCATIONAL ROBOTIC CONTEXT “if I am not in the world simply to adapt to it, but rather transform it, and if it is not possible to change the world without a certain dream or vision for it, I must make use of every possibility there is not only to speak about my utopia, but also to engage in practices consistent with it.” ― Paulo Freire, Pedagogy I teach technology and computer science in a secondary school in Bogota, Colombia. I worked on a master's thesis on processes of Inquiry through of the robotics. This work had significant achievements and would like to focus my PhD in the creation or design of a virtual space for to invent, think up and utilize of “Digital Educational Content- DEC” for its will use by teachers who teach technology and educative robotic in the High School. RESEARCH QUESTION AND AIMS Current processes of teaching and learning in the era of the information society and own knowledge of the 21st century, have changed the objectives, the means and ways to educate. This was a permanent change, where networks on the Internet, computers and electronic devices affect all life activities, have a great impact on everyday use of information and communication in children, youth and adults. It is in this scenario, which in 1994 created in Colombia a compulsory subject for all schools in elementary and high school called "Technology and Informatics”, where this subject encourage the training in Information the Communication of Technology (ICT) for the study of devices, process and informatics system.
  4. 4. 3 After of 20 years of this creation and the Ministry of National Education of Colombia (or Home Office of Education in Colombia) has aims to train teachers in the creation and use of Digital Educational Content- DEC to support the teaching in the public schools, also there are new challenges in training student in the class of technology of to encourage a line of Robotics and automation and the training in Information Communication of Technology (ICT) with the use of Free Software. These processes of educational modernization since the technology has begun, but there are very few tools of Digital Educational Content-DEC for teachers from which to design and use virtual educational activities in teaching technology and educational robotics, other virtual activities are created by companies that charge for their use, however it difficult to expand the training for the creation and use of Digital Educational Content- DEC in public schools of nationwide. Therefore, a primary objective of my dissertation is to develop a virtual space of Digital Educational Content- DEC on technology and educational robotics, enabling free access "online" so they can be used by any teacher in-class technology. After the finalization of the doctorate or PhD, my interest is to promote spaces of appropriation of technology and educational robotics for the training for teachers in public schools in Colombia in order to use the tools that are available can be evaluated (assessed) and improved, as well as attract new developments from their own practices in their areas of teaching. This Digital Educational Contents-DEC would be available in Spanish and English. On the other hand, one of the impacts of my master thesis was to change my own perception on how technology education and educational robotics in my country, before my classes I taught to my students to build prototypes or use software technology, only I evaluated if these products were resolved or not. Now, I have changed the way how I teach this class, as well as the objectives and how to assess this learning.
  5. 5. 4 Likewise, now my goal now is in a class for students to develop research processes that to improve skills as creating questions, imagination (think up) and creativity, improving the motivation of children and young people in science, technology and robotics, as well as I like to encourage the humanization of knowledge promoting young people improve their self-esteem, collaborative work ethic and good treatment of others (the good deal with other people). My proposal educative expect to create Digital Educational Content- DEC of Technology and educational robotic with three design’s category: first category is about of cognitive development (describe, interpret, analyze, assess and self-regulate), the second category is about of skills of inquiry as creating questions, imagination and creativity and the last category is about to improve social skills to live together. QUESTION RESEARCH How I can build Digital Educational Content-DEC for the teaching of the technology and educative robotic in high school students to promote cognitive development, research skills and social skills and their continued training teachers?
  6. 6. 5 AIMS RESEARCH DURING OF DOCTORADE PHD 1. Designing a methodological educational path for the creation of digital educational content and educational robotics technology to develop three components: cognitive development, research skills and social skills. 2. Build a technical design of educational digital content according to the methodology previously designed educational path. 3. Build virtual space technology activities through educational robotics and digital content. 4. Implement a technology class in these digital contents to recognize if you meet the learning objectives proposed in the methodological route and make improvements to the virtual space. AIMS RESEARCH AFTER OF DOCTORADE PHD 1. Organize a workshop or activities to a group of technology teachers for training in the use and creation of Digital Educational Content in virtual space created in my PhD. 2. Submit digital content and developed the network that were put in readiness to the State Public Entity called COLCIENCIAS-financed PhD scholarship for remission of 20% of doctoral expenses that says "Generate research products derived from a research project or innovation implemented in Colombia (PhD Abroad 2014 COLCIENCIAS) "is also a requirement of the Commission for the Study of the institution where I work as a teacher of the Ministry of Education of Colombia District.
