The objective of this research is to design activities with different methodologies in order to verify the degree of acquisition of competences and the student's satisfaction with them. Thus, students of the subject "Difficulties of learning and compensatory education" of the Primary Teacher's Degree are expected to achieve the basic competences of the subject through innovative materials and resources, and with an eminently practical nature. Subsequently, the degree of satisfaction of the activities is evaluated according to the type of methodology. For this purpose, a sample of 176 last course year students is used. A total of 21 activities are designed among the nine subjects of which the subject is composed. 93% of the sample exceeded the subject, proving the acquisition of competences. 12.5% ​​of the sample obtained an outstanding grade, 67% of the sample obtained a remarkable grade, while 13.5% of the sample obtained an approved grade. Only 1.7% of the sample obtained a suspension grade in the subject. Thus, the high degree of competence acquisition of the subject is verified, confirming the first hypothesis. On the other hand, the average satisfaction of the students with the activities was of 8.4, being the activity 1 related to the application of the WISC-R and activity 12, related to relaxation, which obtained higher means. Viewing activities are placed with the lowest means. The starting hypothesis is maintained confirming the benefits of such activities for the acquisition of knowledge in the teaching-learning processes and for the generation of a positive and participatory social climate generated by them. Finally, possible future intervention lines are discussed.
