Abstract

Experimental Sciences teaching corresponds to a broad area containing some of the core subjects of the Degrees of Infant and Primary Education Teaching at the Public University of Navarra. It belongs to the Teaching module and discipline and to the field of "Knowledge of the natural, social environment and its teaching", that is mandatory and consists of a total of 24 ECTS, of which 6 ECTS correspond to "Teaching of Natural Sciences” (TNS). This course is taught in the second half of the second year of the DPET. The aim of this work has been the preparation of this course as a Knowledge Model (KM) including several Concept Maps (CCMM) with different levels of deepness of the developed topics; and to check if this new way of presentation has a positive effect on students’ satisfaction towards the teaching and the learning process (TLP) and if they see more meaning and coherence to the use of concept maps for learning if they are shown the complete course in "this significant language". Results show although it is difficult to change from the comfort zone at the beginning, when students start using CmapTools for creating their own Knowledge Models, they finish learning meaningfully and understanding better the whole course, find it easier to study for the evaluation and get to the domain of Knowledge by reaching basic, general and specific skills
