ARANCIBIA, María L.; CABERO, Julio  e  MARIN, Verónica. Beliefs on teaching and the use of information and communication technologies (ICT) by higher education professors. Form. Univ. [online]. 2020, vol.13, n.3, pp.89-100. ISSN 0718-5006.

The aim of this study was to determine a typology of beliefs of professors’ teaching and their relationships to the use of Moodle. This study also aimed to assess whether or not there were significant differences between profiles and the use of this platform. This study surveyed 641 professors from a Chilean university. The survey was designed to analyze and measure teaching concepts and information and communication technologies (ICT) usage in the classroom. A non-hierarchical K-Media cluster analysis generated two teacher profiles: constructivist and behavioral. Constructivists used technology with Moodle support more often than behavioral professors. The average magnitudes of the indices for constructivist and behavioral professors was low and the median did not exceed the scale used in most cases. This led us to confirm that there is no alignment between student-centered beliefs and constructivist technology classroom practices. Instead, there are other barriers such as curricular practices and low technological and pedagogical background.
