Within the context of the paradigm of learning, the concept of learning as the pickup and reproduction of information is replaced by that of an interactive dynamic process of searching, where investigation and interaction with the environment leads to the birth of new understanding (Mac Farline, 1995; Greene et al., 1973.). The aim of teaching is[...]
