Abstract


This paper describes the use of PowToon in a curricular activity in the Technological Innovations as Didactic Resources course in two pedagogy programs at the Catholic University of Maule (UCM) in Chile. This activity has been designed from the ‘learning by doing’ paradigm, supported by the existing resources available in The Cloud. The perceptions of the students about the use of the program were collected using an open and closed question survey. The data analysis was carried out using a mixed methodology (qualitative/quantitative). In general terms, the results showed a positive opinion about the motivation as well as the contribution of using PowToon to learn new contents and develop ICT-related abilities. Opinions are divided about the level of complexity for users.
