PACHECO, Sabrina Moro Villela and DAMASIO, Felipe. Conceptual maps and V diagrams: as teaching, learning and evaluation tools in technical courses. Ciênc. cogn. [online]. 2009, vol.14, n.2, pp. 166-193. ISSN 1806-5821.
Considering the very small amount of narrated attempts to promote meaningful learning, as Ausubel defined, this study aims to determine whether it is possible to implement, in technical high school courses from IF-SC (Campus Araranguá), strategies that facilitate this kind of learning. This study aims to determine whether it is possible to implement, in technical highschool courses from IF-SC (Campus-Araranguá), strategies that facilitate meaningful learning, as Ausubel defined it. The methodology employed was to use two well known tools which try to make this kind of learning viable: concepual maps and V diagram. The first one is used in order to organize knowledge and assessment of students and the second to boost the classes of laboratory teaching. The project involved students from a technical highschool course in clothing from IF-SC. Results indicate that as the students get in touch with these tools, their analysis suggest a gradual evolution in their cognitive structure towards meaningful learning of the issues discussed. As the value proposition of this study, we can point out that the expectation expressed in the mission of IF-SC, which is to train individuals capable of exercising their citizenship in addition to their profession, can be provided through meaningful learning, which in turn can be implemented through two tools built to achieve this type of learning: conceptual maps and V diagram
