PRELIMINARY DESIGN OF AN APPLICATION TO IMPROVE THE TEACHING AND LEARNING PROCESS

Information in its multiple forms (oral, textual, hypertextual, audio, video, iconic, multimedia ...) is the raw material of the current era. The development and evolution of our civilization is symbiotically linked to the Information and communications technology (ICT). Proposals for teaching and learning in the context of the knowledge society must integrate an educational system that target the thought operations, not only under the traditional logical thinking, but also within a model where thought operations can be expressed in complex active competences, in which abstract knowledge is mixed with the experiential, defined as technological thinking. Currently, the use of devices such as smartphones and tablets is widespread in the youth and the University community. This development reflects not only the growing penetration of these devices in the academic environment, but also that technological applications are increasingly commonly incorporated, which can be used for professors with academic purposes. Currently, there is software available that allows designing and developing applications for smartphones and tablets with academic content. In our case, we intend to design an academic app for Android and iOS systems, which can facilitate the study of various subjects through seamless student-professor communication. The subjects to which the app is addressed include complex physiological phenomena, cell exchange processes and inter-chamber interactions. The lack of time to deal with many contents and concepts is a major problem for professors when it comes to developing the subject, and they are overwhelmed by an enormous amount of information. In this context, the app can lead to a profound change in the subject teaching. This represents a huge challenge for professors, related to innovation, technology, science and education. Tablets, smartphones and applications will be increasingly present in everyday life including university classrooms. Therefore it is imperative that professors have a motivated attitude to the use of these tools and they should be specially trained in its use to develop appropriate educational activities. Knowing devices, products, resources for selection, content is essential to maximize the potential of technology in teaching.
