EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH IN PHYSICS, WITH A SYSTEMIC APPROACH

S. Maffey

Instituto Polit├ęcnico Nacional (MEXICO)
Science education is one of the topics that occupy researchers all over the world, and within it, educational physics has an important place.

Teaching and, consequently, the learning of physics, are linked themes for which there have been many proposals for approach since a particular perspective: didactic methods, design of didactic sequences, didactic material, curricular design, teacher training and use of technology, among others. All of them are valuable in themselves, but they provide solutions to only one element of the problem, which depending on the contexts in which they occupy, can be excellent and in others totally unfeasible.

A good didactic method to teach and learn Physics, can be successful where there is a well equipped laboratory and not be viable where there is no such equipment or even, there is no laboratory.

A didactic sequence designed for a school within a society in which the interest for education is high may not be useful in a community where the production of workers is preferred over the generation of talent in engineering.

The reality is that education in physics is an issue in which many variables intervene: teacher training, teaching styles, characteristics of students, learning styles, teaching methods, educational politics, characteristics of physics, epistemology of each one of the contents to be treated, the idiosyncrasy of the society in which it works, the material, technological and didactic resources with which it is counted, among the most relevant, all interacting with each other continuously.

Therefore, the present communication consists of a methodological proposal with a systemic approach for the investigation of problems of educational physics and also for the design of solutions, in which the mentioned variables are considered as elements of a whole, that is, parts of an integrated system whose functioning depends on the interaction of all of them, starting from the conception that the educational phenomenon in Physics is the didactic system of knowledge of this science, the various factors involved in it and the interrelation between them.
