PERES, Lilian Alves Pereira  and  CALSA, Geiva Carolina. Constructivist intervention: Geometric knowledge, games the possible and the necessary. Rev. psicopedag. [online]. 2020, vol.37, n.114, pp. 299-313. ISSN 0103-8486.

Current paper presents a section of the research work developed between 2013 and 2017 for a doctoral degree in Education at the Universidade Estadual de Maringá. It investigates the effects of a constructivism pedagogical intervention with games and the construction of the possible and the necessary with regard to the learning of spatial notions. Studies by Piaget and Inhelder and Piaget foregrounded the main theoretical references. The research, based on Piaget´s clinical and critical method, comprised the following design: operatory tests on spatial notions, the possible and the necessary, and spatial concepts were performed prior to and after pedagogical interventions. In addition, we perform before and after to the above question could be given, assessment on geometry, specifically activities on the notions of Space and Form, was performed. Results showed that the use of the game Katamino contributed towards the construction of the possible within the students´ strategies and improvement in all post-evaluation tests. Results are related to the methodology used during pedagogical interventions, especially, the use of games of rules plus teacher-researcher´s pedagogical mediation. Data underline the importance of games of rules within an educational context due to the fact that they trigger thoughts in the agents, providing significant constructions from the cognitive point of view.

Keywords : Education; Games of Rules; The Possible and the Necessary; Space and Form; Constructivism Pedagogical Intervention.
