A New Didactic-Andragogical Tool to Consolidate Knowledge Applied to the Active Methodology PBL


Literature and teaching experience show the need to reflect upon teaching-learning strategies that take advantage of students’ prior knowledge and that promote opportunities to develop autonomy, especially when teaching adults. This work aims to present the strategy named Circle of Knowledge (CK) and contextualizes it in the light of andragogy by demonstrating two practical applications in the Phonographic Production course at FATEC Tatuí, a Public Technology College in Brazil. The study comprises of a bibliographic review on teaching-learning theory, andragogy, and didactic tools. Furthermore, the dynamics of CKs involving two project-based learning (PBL) groups, the Plug-ins League and the Events League, are described and discussed. The CKs were carried out after the projects were accomplished in order to register the learning obtained as well as to deepen the discussions. Two behaviors were observed among the students - free speech and active participation (at a high level) in the discussion with the guests, and silence. Those who remained silent reported that they were able to follow and understand everything that was being discussed despite the high level of the discussion specially for a topic that had been far beyond their level of knowledge before their participation in the PBL which gave them a great sense of satisfaction. This promoted transdisciplinarity and was efficient in reinforcing learning by allowing more space for speech, active listening and time for students to lead the construction of knowledge both individually and collectively.
