Abstract

Objective. The aim was to understand private school teachers’ social representations of learning in the current technological landscape. Method. Forty teachers participated in the study; twenty of whom had Educational Robotic Technology embedded in their school curriculum; and twenty of whom did not. Data collection was carried out via a socio-demographic questionnaire, TALP and semi-structured interviews. The data were analyzed using Bardin’s technique of semantic networks and thematic content analysis. Results. Teachers with educational robotics in their curriculum-linked learning showed the construction of knowledge associated with a constructionist approach. Those who did not, conversely, elucidated learning with an instructional vision aimed at transmitting the knowledge that occurs through the search.

Keywords: Social representations, learning, teachers
