The students went from a Basic Beginner Level to a Medium Intermediate Level and were able to develop small presentations, incorporate idiomatic expressions into their daily life classroom and create with language. <strong>Conclusion.</strong> The indigenous language should not only be studied from isolated vocabularies and abstract grammar. It is necessary to use it in all kinds of everyday situations and force its constant use with various idioms and tools that allow its users to create with language progressively. It is proven that conditions can be facilitated to contribute valuable elements to the linguistic revitalization of the school classroom. It is stated that not only is the indigenous language learned, but also that various disciplinary knowledge can be accessed through it.</span></p> 2022-04-21T00:00:00-06:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://www.revistas.una.ac.cr/index.php/EDUCARE/article/view/13394 Level of Satisfaction in High School Students With the Use of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning in the Classroom 2022-05-02T13:17:36-06:00 Rosalba Acosta-Corporan u139132@usal.es Antonio Víctor Martín-García avmg@usal.es Azucena Hernández-Martín azuher@usal.es <p class="p1"><strong>Objective.</strong> This paper aims to evaluate the level of satisfaction of high school students when using collaborative learning methodologies through ICT or CSCL for their teaching-learning process. <strong>Method.</strong> Regarding the methodology, 117 Dominican Republic students were selected from five different secondary school grades; these students had developed a three-month collaborative project.

This research was conducted in Mapuche communities in La Araucanía Region. <strong>Objective.</strong> To analyze the dialogic practices between Mapuche and traditional school knowledge and knowledge from the perspective of the kimeltuchefes located in rural Mapuche contexts. <strong>Methodology.</strong> The methodological approach is qualitative, framed in grounded theory. The participants correspond to 36 kimeltuchefes (Mapuche people who carry knowledge, wisdom, and experience); the data collection techniques used were in-depth interviews and focus groups. The analysis process was interpretive. <strong>Results. </strong>The main results indicate that the Mapuche family plays a fundamental role in the education and transmission of their culture to the Mapuche and non-Mapuche students. It was found that dialogue plays an important role in inter-subjective relationships between kimeltuchefes and teachers since it allows the exchange and learning of knowledge, wisdom, and experiences. In this sense, the school must integrate the Mapuche families and include the Kimeltuchefes through learning communities to advance in the construction of an intercultural curriculum through dialogue and collaborative work. In addition, this requires articulated pedagogical practices and the teacher’s role as a reflective mediator, generator of information and knowledge. <strong>Conclusions. </strong>The knowledge, wisdom, and experiences of the Mapuche educators must be recognized and valued, which, at the same time, must be in constant dialogue with school knowledge through common cultural, educational projects in order to advance towards intercultural education.</p> 2022-03-09T21:02:37-06:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://www.revistas.una.ac.cr/index.php/EDUCARE/article/view/13484 New Scenarios, Actors, and Educational Practices Where Coexistence, Diversity, and Culture Are Built 2022-05-02T13:17:38-06:00 Ana Lucia Rosero-Prada alrosero@usbcali.edu.co Elsy Dominguez-De La Ossa edominguez@utb.edu.co <p class="p1"><strong><em>Introduction.</em></strong> Colombia has a variety of territories, people, cultures, political, and religious affiliations; however, it has been affected by a history of violence, inequality, corruption, among other evils, associated with the lack of tolerance for differences and the lack of protection for communities and minorities. <strong>Objective.</strong> The study was proposed to unveil the knowledge produced by organizations, their cultural modes of knowledge construction, intercultural learning, practices, and knowledge. As a counter-hegemonic bet, it was proposed to make them visible by considering their territories, life stories, and experiences. <strong>Method.</strong> The study was conducted from participatory action research, with 38 co-researchers from 13 organizations through pedagogical/research meetings, visits to territories, reflection circles, and interviews. <strong>Results. </strong>The study identified lines of flight analyzed from the perspective of the decolonization of aesthetic, epistemic manifestations, and the configuration of pedagogy in a territory as a vehicle of relations, the care of oneself and others in common spaces from dialogues, and plurilogical and multicultural practices. <strong>Conclusions.</strong> It is possible to demonstrate the recognition of an epistemic diversity and another pedagogy, that is, a call for other logics/rupture of the unitary idea of the world.

In this sense, the present research aimed to examine the relationship between self-efficacy and temporal perspective in repeater students of secondary level. <strong>Method.</strong> The General Self-Efficacy Scale instrument, using its Peruvian version <span class="s1">(Grimaldo Muchotrigo, 2005)</span>, and Temporary Perspective Inventory <span class="s1">(Díaz-Morales, 2006)</span> were applied. The sample consisted of 157 school students who repeated the school year at the primary or secondary level. <strong>Results.</strong> The results indicate a moderate and positive relationship between self-efficacy and the future dimension (r = 0.48), positive past (r = 0.32) and hedonistic present (r = 0.30), and a low and positive relationship between self-efficacy and negative past (r = 0.22) and fatalistic present (r = 0.27). <strong>Discussion.</strong> It is concluded that there is a moderate relationship between self-efficacy and prospects that should be examined in future studies, understanding that the population of repeater students is a group that has not yet been studied. In fact, these results have strong practical implications because they show the need to explore psychological variables in a population with grade repetition and to carry out approaches from the psycho-pedagogical departments of the educational centers.</p> 2022-04-19T13:34:09-06:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://www.revistas.una.ac.cr/index.php/EDUCARE/article/view/14589 Heritage Education in Pre-colonial Settlements: Are There Differences in Learning According to Presentation Models of Archaeological Sites? 2022-05-02T13:17:37-06:00 Iván Ernesto Quijano-Araníbar ivan.quijano1@unmsm.edu.pe <p class="p1"><strong>Introduction.</strong> <span class="s1">Masriera i Esquerra (2007, 2008)</span> affirms that, in reconstructed archaeological sites, there is real learning in students, but in consolidated models unlearning is generated. <strong>Objective.</strong> To know if there are differences in learning according to the presentation models of archaeological sites in students of the Peruvian Archeology course. <strong>Methodology.</strong> The research approach is a quantitative and descriptive type study with a non-experimental cross-sectional design.

In a deeply technologized society, this fact contrasts with the high level of digitalization in the teachers’ daily practice: they regulate their lives according to the digital technology principles. <strong>Aims.</strong> This research aims to contrast the digital practices of teachers outside and inside the classroom based on a model of technological adoption that qualifies the uses of ICT and the level of appropriation that these uses imply. <strong>Method.</strong> This effect was analyzed using a non experimental descriptive methodology, and a survey was conducted to establish the level of technological adoption in teachers’ lives and teaching practices. <strong>Results.</strong> In private life, how teachers use technology allows the expansion of tasks carried out towards horizons that traditionally cannot be reached without its use. This is not the case in teaching, where the use of digital tools contributes to implementing traditional practices. Concerning teacher training, teachers perceive the need to direct it to expand the digital experience, although in their professional practice, they continue to have a clearer orientation towards reproducing those traditional practices. <strong>Conclusions.</strong> The results show that technological adoption in private life is mainly orientated towards a widening level, whereas teaching focuses more on switching traditional tasks to others that, even though they imply the use of digital technologies, do not innovate in practice.</p> 2022-04-07T00:00:00-06:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://www.revistas.una.ac.cr/index.php/EDUCARE/article/view/13629 Pedagogical Use of Blogs in the Attitudinal Component of Written Communication Skills 2022-05-02T13:17:37-06:00 José Miguel Cornelio-Ramos C15035@utp.edu.pe <p class="p1"><strong>Objective.</strong> With this study, based on Virtual Learning Environments (VLE) and the three-dimensional theory of attitude, it is intended to determine the impact of the pedagogical use of blogs in WIX –a web development platform– on the attitudinal component of written communicative competence in the student body of the Writing Leveling course at the Technological University of Peru (UTP). <strong>Methodology.</strong> Quasi-experimental design and the quantitative approach will be discussed. The sample consisted of 50 students: 26 for the control and 24 for the experiment, in which a three-dimensional Likert scale survey was applied, in a pretest and posttest. <strong>Results.</strong> The results showed that the experimental group experienced the Achieved level and the In process control. In the first and second dimensions, the experiment reached the Achieved level (m = 29.08) and (m = 29.08), respectively.

The study included 294 Spanish families whose children were enrolled in the last years of primary school during the 2019-2020 academic year. SPSS 22.0 was used for the statistical analysis. Since the selected variables are nominal, descriptive statistics were used, specifically frequencies and percentages, as well as the use of contingency tables, Pearson’s χ2, Cramer’s V to determine the size of the effect. <strong>Results.</strong> The main results showed a parental pattern of autonomy in doing homework and the search for support, preferably from relatives instead of external support. This pattern is repeated in sons and daughters, who also do homework at home and invest between 1 and 2 hours, although this depends on the educational course. The place and the person who helps with sons and daughters’ homework assignments are significantly related to the the parents’ educational level. <strong>Conclusion.</strong> The continuity of the model from fathers and mothers to sons and daughters is significantly demonstrated; this denotes the need for a pedagogical review in this regard, which promotes a different approach to the performance of homework.</p> 2022-04-11T00:00:00-06:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://www.revistas.una.ac.cr/index.php/EDUCARE/article/view/14433 Training of Rural Extension Agents in Latin America: Practices, Problems, and Proposals 2022-05-02T13:17:36-06:00 Fernando Landini landini_fer@hotmail.com Iván Villafuerte-Almeida ivan.villafuerte@udla.edu.ec <p class="p1"><strong>Introduction.</strong> Most academic work on training extension agents tends to address the topic tangentially, in a purely theoretical way or focussing on specific case studies. This article aims to describe, characterize, and analyze the training received by extension agents from Argentina, Chile, Cuba, Ecuador, Guatemala, and Uruguay. <strong>Method. </strong>A sample of 133 extension agents was interviewed in 68 individual and 18 group interviews. The interviews were transcribed and examined using content analysis with the support of Atlas.ti software. <strong>Results</strong>. Extension agents receive productive and methodological training, though they perceive the latter to be insufficient. Practical training and participatory methodologies, which allow for the exchange of experiences among peers, are valued the most. The interviewees recommend that extension institutions support their employees’ training and develop systematic training plans covering productive topics and extension methodologies. Training is expected to be practical, participatory, up-to-date, and sufficiently profound. <strong>Discussion. </strong>The research results concur with different investigations.

For students’ historical education to be based on this teaching approach, it is necessary to introduce it into educational curricula, among other aspects. <strong>Method.</strong> This qualitative research aimed to compare the curricula of ten countries (Canada, the United States, Mexico, Chile, Argentina, Australia, England, Portugal, France, and Spain), of particular relevance for their publications on this subject, to verify the presence of historical thinking concepts in them through the technique of content analysis. <strong>Results.</strong> The results showed that these concepts were incorporated into most curricula according to educational studies conducted on this subject. The results showed that most of the curricula have echoed the educational research carried out on this theme, including such concepts in their study programs. <strong>Discussion.</strong> Nevertheless, some modifications are necessary in the study programs of other countries to foster the development of historical thinking among students. To this end, curricula in which the historical concepts proper to this teaching approach are fully integrated can serve as a model and reference.</p> 2022-04-18T00:00:00-06:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://www.revistas.una.ac.cr/index.php/EDUCARE/article/view/13625 Characterization of Academic Procrastination in Peruvian University Students 2022-05-02T13:17:37-06:00 Beatriz Duda-Macera beatriz@deficitdeatencionperu.com Eliana Gallardo-Echenique egallardoechenique@gmail.com <p class="p1"><strong>Aims. </strong>This study aimed to understand the characteristics associated with academic procrastination in engineering students at a private university in Lima.

The studied sample comprised 231 students and was of a non-probabilistic, purposive, and convenience type. We reviewed the theoretical-empirical contributions concerning sex education in teacher training for education professionals, the inclusion of this discipline in university curricula, the processes of educational innovation in universities, and the strategies for improving university training for education professionals, among other aspects. <strong>Results</strong>. The 99.6% of the subjects in the sample showed positive attitudes towards sexuality; the high percentages increased with respect to the course, while the medium percentages decreased as the course progressed, becoming higher percentages. <strong>Conclusions.</strong> The absence of content related to sex education in the teaching plans of the degree program in Educational Science is evident. It is also reflected that, for the students participating in the study, sex education is considered a right whose exercise should be guaranteed and a discipline that should be addressed compulsorily and explicitly in the curriculum of the degree in a systematic, rigorous, and scientific way and within the teaching timetable. <strong>Recommendations. </strong>It is proposed to design a compulsory sex education course for the degree in Educational Science at the University of Oviedo and train the teaching staff responsible for this subject.</p> 2022-04-21T00:00:00-06:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://www.revistas.una.ac.cr/index.php/EDUCARE/article/view/13686 Relationship among sleep, technological devices and academic achievement in adolescents from Galicia (Spain) 2022-05-02T13:17:36-06:00 Teresa Juana García-Real teresa.greal@udc.es Luisa Losada-Puente luisa.losada@udc.es <p class="p1"><span class="s1"><strong>Background.</strong> Hygiene and sleep quality have been linked to cognitive functioning in adolescents.

The qualitative data were obtained from students, teachers, and graduates of this educational modality through focus groups and in-depth interviews. The quantitative data were obtained from external inquiries through surveys. <strong>Results.</strong> As a result, external visions did not show credulity about the quality of online education and, without knowing its curricular dynamism, they exhibited distrust about the competencies of graduates. This explains why higher education continues to be predominantly face-to-face, even with the rise of the virtual world. On the other hand, the internal visions revealed confidence in the quality and confirmed theoretical concepts about learning in virtuality related to pedagogical mediations, educational, technological platforms, pedagogical competencies of teachers, construction of learning, and continuous participation of students. <strong>Conclusions.</strong> These findings can be applied in the renewal of educational quality systems focused on the positivist measurement of intrinsic factors; they can also be used to advance from a model of socialization and promotion based on flexibility and easy access to another focused on pedagogical potential and training advantages of online education.</p> 2022-03-09T00:00:00-06:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://www.revistas.una.ac.cr/index.php/EDUCARE/article/view/13661 Resilience in Mathematics Learners 2022-05-02T13:17:37-06:00 Oswaldo Jesús Martínez-Padrón ommadail1@gmail.com Miren Dunixe De Tejada-Lagonell tejadalagonell@gmail.com María del Socorro García-González mgargonza@gmail.com <p class="p1"><span class="s1"><strong>Introduction.</strong> A series of aspects related to learners’ resilience of mathematical content are characterized, considering that students can exhibit unfavorable attitudes towards Mathematics.
