CAMPOS, Maria Célia Rabello Malta and MACEDO, Lino de. Development of the teacher's mediation function in games workshops. Psicol. Esc. Educ. [online]. 2011, vol.15, n.2, pp. 211-220. ISSN 1413-8557. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1413-85572011000200003.
In this study we aim at describing a method of teacher education based on Mediated Learning Experience concept, as exposed by Feuerstein, Klein e Tannenbaum. We adapted the methodological principles to games workshops model with the purpose of promoting learning processes or teacher's education. We also propose to present a case study of a 1st. grade teacher in which those aspects are analyzed by relation to some indicators of her or his progress as a mediator. The data were extracted from video record observations that took place during the teacher education process. Data allowed identifying strategies and procedures which can be considered as indicators of the mediation function, according to criteria defined by the mentioned authors. We believe this study can contribute to teacher education projects oriented to the development and assessment of competencies in active teaching methods.
