Innovative interventions in class, have been the orientation of the current education. The Santiago de Chile University through Teaching Innovation Projects, stimulates the intervention in class, this has allowed a great teaching development. The research team of the career Technologist Telecommunications was awarded the project "Searching the comprehend in the to do". It is performed the procedure in four consecutive courses during the period 2013-2014, for the course of "Introduction to Telecommunications" over a sample of 120 students.

The variables registered are the dispersion in classroom (attention level) and levels comprehension that depend on the attendance levels and comprehension levels.

Measurements were conducted without and with practical intervention, these records showed the power of participatory methodology based on projects involving all students.

The current student demand poses challenges that involve large flows of information that contrasts with the based methodologies in 2D (only uses the plane of the blackboard). The current education requires methodologies and teaching skills based in n-dimensional systems (using the blackboard, ICT elements, participation. videos, audio files, etc.). The comparative results for the assistance was successful, achieving a high level of understanding and a marked decrease in the dispersion in the classroom.
