In Play Store and App Store there are only 3 applications with similar characteristics, but they do not allow the number of combinations or the calculation in real time of this application.
Technology advances and also learning methodologies for students in the classroom. That is why memorists of the Industrial Civil Engineering career of the Faculty of Engineering of the University of La Serena, seek to determine the differences in performance and motivation statistics in students in the eighth grade, with the application Ingar-dc analysis, of electrical circuits.
The academic of the Department of Industrial Engineering and director of the Technology Marketing and Technology-Based Entrepreneurship Hub of the FIULS 2030 Project, MTII. Alejandro Álvarez, in relation to this initiative, indicated that “our study seeks to go one step further to visualize new ways in the learning process and we realized that there is a different methodology to teach about the electrical circuit with an interactive application, knowing the types of circuits and how electricity and voltage are shared. ”
Students and memorists of the Industrial Civil Engineering degree, Karim Moya and Katherine Paredes, are making their memoirs and implementing the application at the Teresa Videla College of the commune of La Serena.
Karim Moya explained that "we approach students and observe their performance and show them augmented reality, and we have noticed in the tests the knowledge that they have acquired and are more motivated."
While Katherin Paredes said that "the title memory is to apply augmented reality based on electrical circuits to know if it increases student performance and motivation with these innovative tools."
For his part, the Dean of the Faculty of Engineering, Dr. Ing. Mauricio Godoy, congratulated both the academic and the students for this innovative project, noting that “as a Faculty of Engineering, we are at the forefront of technologies, supporting our environment, in this case to schools in our commune, measuring the impact of this innovative tool ”.
The application is called Ingar-dc analysis and in the world, in Play Store and App Store, there are only 3 applications with similar characteristics, but they do not allow the amount of combinations or the calculation in real time of this application.
Technology Marketing and Technology Entrepreneurship
This Axis of the FIULS 2030 Project seeks to develop and transfer innovation and entrepreneurship capabilities to the interior and exterior of the Faculty, generating instances and initiatives that configure a sustainable, recognized and high-impact R&D ecosystem.
