A Pedagogical Model for Integrating Digital Technologies in Education: Workshops on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGS)
A proposal for a pedagogical model that integrates digital technologies in teaching Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in K-12 Education.
The research is developed within project InTecEdu (Integration of Technology in Education), developed by the research group since 2008, and focusing on social inclusion for highly socially vulnerable K-12 students.
The research was exploratory and qualitative; data was collected through a questionnaire and participant observation, with 253 students and 9 teachers from 5 Brazilian public schools.
The research contributes by bringing a pedagogical model for integrating SDGs and Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) in K-12 education.
All analyzed aspects received a high level of approval, although some opportunities for improvement were identified, such as the duration and frequency of the session.
We recommend the reuse of the pedagogical model, since our intention is for it to be open-source, and free to use.
The paper is aligned with the fourth SDG: Quality Education. It directly contributes with the education of 253 socially vulnerable students from a south American public school, and indirectly contributes with improvement of education.
To improve the pedagogical model based on the feedback from the questionnaires and apply it with a more extensive scenario.
