VIVISSECÇÃO VIRTUAL COM UTILIZAÇÃO DE DISPOSITIVOS MÓVEIS: UMA PROPOSTA PARA O ENSINO E APRENDIZAGEM DE BIOLOGIA

Meire Pereira De França, Ismar Frango Silveira

Abstract


The demonstration of basic anatomical features of animals is a required topic on learning Biology at K-12 and High School. Nonetheless, since Bioethics principles forbid vivisection practices on this school level, this paper aims to show a methodological approach of developing students' critical Bioethics on this subject, exposing them to a virtual vivisection process using mobile technologies. An experimental activity was conducted with 2nd year High School students. They were given tablets to perform a set of activities, as watching a video about Bioethics and make searches about vivisection, which was used to support them to perform a virtual vivisection process using a tablet-based application. After completion of this process, students produced a text about the experience using Google Docs and answered a survey about the activity. The approach here exposed was effective in order to improve student's understanding of the topics covered. Index Terms - Mobile devices, tablets, learning objects, virtual vivisection, Biology learning.
