DIGITAL MAGAZINE CHAPINGO SCIENCES; A PROPOSAL FOR SUPPORTING SCIENTIFIC CULTURE WITH DIGITAL MOODLE SUPPORT IN PHYSICS AREA

Universidad Autónoma Chapingo (MEXICO)
As a teaching-learning approach a digital magazine "Science Chapingo" was implemented in the area of physics from Chapingo Autonomous University in order to develop a collaborative work with our comrades. This paper is a didactic strategy in the teaching of physics via web, for encouraging the scientific culture. The magazine could be a tool used with our colleagues to improve the physics learning process. The growing interest in use didactics media like the educational platforms (Moodle) to teach science, it makes necessary to understand the functioning of alternative systems like personal learning environments. Trough this strategy we can achieve two thing: Help other to develop their digital skills, with publishing the works of themselves such as develop practices linked to the physics concepts, using scientific articles, animations, simulation, videos, pictures and digital laboratories. This media allows teaching physics concepts with supports of pictures, web page, videos, texts and computer resources. This approach has been designed in four stages. First stage defines the theoretical framework of the proposal called "Personal Learning Environment in Physics (PLEP)”. This media was designed to be use in different ways: individual, in a discussion group or in the physics class, considering resources of hardware and software available to be used. Main difficulties were analyzed to get applications in physics on this kind of media and, some elements were proposed in a lineal-hierarchy way. Hence in the class of physics many concepts are studied, with the change of representations, it meaning the constructions of the ideas in different abstraction levels: symbols, graphs and equations. Second stage, describes the didactic model, which consists get data that will help to build or integrate a community that is working to develop digital skill and a scientific culture. Third stage includes the discussion on the data collected and exchange information how the magazine could be a media where teachers and students help each other in physics learning process in the physics area. Finally, the last stage shows how information incorporated on a digital magazine could be useful to study physics concepts using the information showed. The didactic approach here has been tasting in courses of physics like, mechanics, fluids, thermodynamic and electromagnetism with students in order to get a multimedia allows the learning physics and to facilitate the construction of mental models adequate to help the understanding phenomena as well as the experimentation, graphics and the formalism with theory equations. This media approach offers real advantages in helping students to construct representations of the same phenomenon, manipulating symbols, graphics, data, text, images, videos, sounds and simulations.
