Uso de las TIC para la generación y divulgación de conocimiento científico por estudiantes universitarios

Alejandro Ruiz Bernés, Salvador Ruiz Bernés, Verónica Benítez Guerrero, Aurelio Flores García


El ejercicio de la alfabetización científica del estudiante de nivel superior se proyecta mediante la práctica profesional, en la que se involucran las tecnologías de la información y comunicación para innovar. El objetivo del trabajo fue identificar las TIC utilizadas para la generación y divulgación de conocimiento científico por estudiantes universitarios. Se aplicó un instrumento con 69 reactivos de los que se sustrajeron 2 secciones que caracterizan el uso de las TIC y la forma en que se genera y divulga el conocimiento científico. La muestra fue no probabilística de tipo homogénea conformada por 439 estudiantes. Los resultados se presentaron mediante estadística descriptiva (frecuencias, proporciones, tasas e intervalos de confianza). Se concluye que las TIC han sido poco aprovechadas por los estudiantes, resultando poca generación de conocimiento, innovación y divulgación.
