CENICH, Gabriela y SANTOS, Graciela. Meaningful and collaborative learning in an online course of teacher education. Rev. electrón. investig. educ. cienc. [online]. 2009, vol.4, n.2, pp. 7-23. ISSN 1850-6666.
The purpose of this paper is to report some results about the dynamics of interactions between teachers at the secondary school in a evaluation of educational practices course. It describes and analyzes the activity of the course "Sharing stories" aimed at promoting critical reflective analysis of those elements forming prejudices and preconceptions, such as personal experiences and training and teaching practices. The proposal of e-course (online collaborative course) is based on ideas of social constructivism, delving into two central theoretical approaches to individual and group level: meaningful learning and collaborative learning.
