Desarrollo del pensamiento crítico a través del uso del contenido implícito de canciones

Critical thinking development by using the implicit content of songs

Contenido principal del artículo

Daniel Antonio Arias Casas


Este estudio tuvo como objetivo revelar el proceso de desarrollo de pensamiento crítico de los estudiantes de tercer nivel de inglés en una Universidad pública en Colombia cuando se utiliza el contenido implícito de canciones y actividades basadas en problemas. Una serie de actividades basadas en problemas se convirtió en el mecanismo para lograr el objetivo principal del estudio. Los instrumentos para la recolección de los datos fueron: videos, entrevista focalizada y artefactos de los estudiantes. Los resultados de la investigación revelaron tres aspectos principales relacionados con el propósito de la investigación: El docente debe establecer condiciones apropiadas para involucrar a los estudiantes en un proceso de pensamiento crítico. El proceso de pensamiento crítico de los estudiantes puede variar según las diferentes perspectivas y actividades implementadas en el aula. Finalmente, las canciones en contextos universitarios pueden ser usadas intencionalmente para activar el pensamiento en el proceso de aprendizaje.
