Storm as a Model for Measuring Understanding of Electrical Field

Miriam Martínez Muñoz, Jose Antonio Gutiérrez de Mesa, Lourdes Jiménez

Abstract

This work forms a part of an investigation project whose main objective is to understand the impact that the use of Information and Communication Technology has on the teaching and learning processes. Work has been done particularly on implementing a teaching proposal which includes the use of new technologies for comprehensive learning to advanced level students. We propose to analyze the use of technological resources such as a simulator as part of specific teaching strategies in actual settings and the impact that they cause in the understanding of the concepts of physics. With this work we try to demonstrate that, with the utilization of a storm simulator, the students of physics improve their learning process, on one hand they understand this physic phenomenon and on the other hand, assimilate better the concepts related to Electrostatics.
