The use of the Socrative application to enhance student attention: electroencephalography data of attention levels
Keywords:Attention, Meaningful Learning, Socrative App
O uso do Socrative App (app de feedback de resposta instantânea) foi investigado como uma ferramenta para aumentar a atenção no desenvolvimento da Aprendizagem Significativa para estudantes de Engenharia em uma disciplina de Física. Os sujeitos, alunos de Engenharia, são obtidos em sua aprendizagem por meio de uma lista de impressões de exercícios comparativamente quando realizam um único exercício no App Socrative. Este estudo apresenta resultados favoráveis ao uso desse aplicativo, pois incentivo o engajamento em sala de aula, motivado pelo uso dessa tecnologia, bem como o aumento da atenção na ausência de elementos distrativos em uma lista com várias opções de exercícios.
