Abstract

TORRES MERCHAN, NIDIA YANETH. THE SOCIAL-SCIENTIFIC MATTERS: AN EDUCATION ALTERNATIVE FOR SUSTAINABILITY. Luna Azul [online]. 2011, n.32, pp.45-51. ISSN 1909-2474.

The article presents a reflection on the use and dealing with the social-scientific matters (SC) in future teachers. This teaching strategy generates concerns related with the influence of science and technology in society and in the environment (CTSE), promotes compromises in the education of attitudes and behaviors which are favorable for the achievement of a sustainable development, and reflects about the diverse environmental problems product of individual interests away from biological and cultural conservation. The SC allow the connection in a more striking way with a diversity of disciplinary topics, not only in order to obtain a cognitive learning in the students, but also the development of social, ethics and cultural capacities which promote an education for the sustainability with actions channeled to responsible social behavior when making decisions with a foundation. For this reason, the notions about the CTSE approach and the advantages of using the CS are dealt with, thus illustrating the reflections that teachers are requested to make.

Keywords : Social-scientific matters; education for sustainability; citizenship; decision-making.
