Technological Initiation Project related to Economy 4.0 was contemplated
The project proposed by Professor Carlos Henrique da Silva Santos, from the Campus Itapetininga, was contemplated by the IFES Edital nº 03/2020 - Support for Technological Initiation with a focus on Economy 4.0. The proposal can receive up to R $ 123 thousand for use with research grants and infrastructure.
The selected project “Let's Learn Mathematics by Hand on Hardware: Active Learning Methodologies Based on Computational Thinking to Motivate the Learning of Elementary Mathematical Concepts”, competed with 214 works submitted by the entire Federal Network.
Before being submitted to the public notice of the IF of Espírito Santo, the project was part of the two pre-selected proposals through the Public Notice nº 218/2020, organized by the IFSP Innovation Agency (Inova), together with the Pro-rectories of Extension and Research and Graduate Studies.

Let's Learn Mathematics by Hand in Hardware: Active Learning Methodologies Based on Computational Thinking to Motivate the Learning of Elementary Mathematical Concepts
Coordinator: Carlos Henrique da Silva Santos
At the Itapetininga Campus, both in the Mathematics Degree courses and in the concomitant and integrated technical courses in Informatics, there are teaching practices based on active learning methodologies with experiences based on project and problem, inverted classroom, learning in pairs and some combined with hybrid teaching models with rotation by seasons, “à la carte” and “blended learning” by mixing classroom practices with others performed using Internet tools that assist in the teaching-learning process.
Based on this experience, the proposal proposes to elaborate contents, practices and accompany the teaching-learning process of Mathematics by active methodologies, associating it with concepts of computational thinking to help students visualize the application of these theories. Thus, there has been technological research applied to teaching, aiming to apply building based on teaching methodologies and models in vogue, but little explored in everyday school life. However, with these experiences and with the partnership of educational institutions, it is intended to develop distance learning courses based on the practices that have taken place and demonstrating the results with examples in class. For this, inclusive and project-based actions are planned so that students try to build resources based on open electronics and that can have practical applications in their daily lives, such as, for example, a home automation project with steps in electric gate control and until the activation of lamps via cell phone.
