GALIAZZI, Maria do Carmo  y  GONCALVES, Fábio Peres. The pedagogical nature of experimental activities: research in a teaching credentials course in chemistry. Quím. Nova [online]. 2004, vol.27, n.2, pp.326-331. ISSN 1678-7064.

In this paper we discuss the characteristics of experimental activities described by teachers and students in a teaching credentials course in Chemistry. The research pointed out a set of characteristics that seem to favor the learning process: the bringing up of the student's knowledge; the mediation by peers; the dialogue to set out the student's knowledge; the debate; the validation of arguments; the discussion about the context. The authors argument that, because of the empirical view of Science present in Chemistry courses, the discussion about the nature of Science is important.

Palabras clave : implicit theories; pedagogical nature of practical work; experimental activities.
