Abstract:The educational process, and as consequence, the student training in different disciplines is a topic of great interest for both national and international, such is the case in many of the science fields like Physics, reason why diverse institutions or organisms devote themselves to the task of studying the application of different implemented educational models, for example, the current educational model based on the approach for competences that appeared in the '70s, we will board this educational process from a completely theoretical point of view, trying to adjust it to Physics.
This educational model has a systemic approach that when applied to the teaching- learning process of a natural, factual, experimental and exact science like Physics, it implies that the knowledge to be considered should be relative to natural phenomena, demonstrable in an experimental form and that could be studied and modelled by means of mathematics. For such characteristics, the knowledge that constitutes it has been observed, studied and explained along the history, determining its conceptualization based on the knowledge that permit to adapt, to correct and/or clarify the vision and the knowledge in the different educational models.
The above mentioned model is based in the bonding that should exist between the formation and preparation, as well as the application of the knowledge, competences and skills in the student’s job field, demonstrating with it the progress and successful learnings; obtaining with it the decision making. Nevertheless, it is important to consider that the results depend to a great extent on the elements that are involved in the process, such as the teacher and the pupils; as well as, the different methods, tools, technologies and strategies that are implemented.
In a school environment, particularly, inside the educational model based on the approach for competences, we have concentrated in the task of studying and designing a methodological proposal for teaching and learning Physics within a framework of competences; methodology that can be explored and applied to different knowledge, educational levels, institutions, and why not, even after the combination of other methods and teaching techniques.
Keywords: Educational Model, Approach for Competences, Teaching-Learning Physics, Active Learning Physics.
