ABSTRACT Nature of science (NOS) is a critical content in recent science education reform efforts of several countries worldwide. In this paper, second part of the study, we show a view of the Pedagogical Content Knowledge (PCK) for NOS teaching. The major constraints that impede or inhibit to implementing NOS in science teaching are also discussed, and we interpret it through a PCK integrative model for NOS teaching.

El conocimiento de la naturaleza de la ciencia (NdC) se considera un contenido claveen las recientes reformas de la enseñanza de las ciencias implantadas en diversospaíses del mundo. En este artículo, segunda parte del estudio, se muestra unaperspectiva del Conocimiento Didáctico del Contenido (CDC) para la enseñanza de laNdC. También se discuten algunos de los principales factores que impiden o dificultanla puesta en práctica de la NdC en la enseñanza de las ciencias y se interpretanmediante un modelo integrador del CDC.

    ABSTRACT: In this article we present the results of an internal investigation at Instituto Profesional Providencia IPP, with reference to Learning for Comprehension in the Formation of the Studente in the subject Physics I, taking into account the Academic Model, which is oriented by three different kinds of knowledge: 1) Knowing how to Learn: 2) Knowing how to Do and 3) Know how to Be-Engage. We discuss the analysis of a follow-up workshop with students during four classes, each one of which Lasting 90 minutes. We characterize and describe the dimensions and the comprehension insights achieved by students in the Learning process of the Didactic Unit corresponding to Uniform Linear Motion. At the same time, we emphasize procedural aspects which contribute for the transition from a Cognitive Centered Tendency to an Intuitive View on Learning, from a Constructive Tendency, which is the kind of represantation of Learning which is necessary in order to successfully face the demands of Higher Education.

    ABSTRACT: Inside the international research project Teaching and Learning about Nature of Science and Technology: An experimental and longitudinal research (eancyt, acronym in Spanish), a teaching/learning sequence is described, which has been designed to improve the comprehension of the nature Of Science (nos) and technology, trying to help students of the General chemistry course in Undergraduate education to learn adequate ideas around the scientific competences of «defining» and «modeling». This sequence involves students in an inquiry process related with the history and the definitions of the concepts «substance» and «chemical reaction», two of greatest importance in any chemistry course. Throughout the sequence, students will gradually improve the definitions of these two concepts from the macroscopic level to the nanoscopic one, trying them to be convinced that “defining is modeling”. The students will face the reading of essays on historical and experimental facets of both concepts. additionally, it is analyzed here the carrying out of the sequence with a group of students on the first semester of 2012, and the changes that were done after this evaluation.

    ABSTRACT: The teacher training for effective implementation of teaching of the nature of science (NOS) is a key issue in the current science education. In this paper, we expose the main components of Pedagogical Content Knowledge (PCK) for NOS, as knowledge base that a professor of science has to get in their professional development. We propose an integrative PCK-NOS model, several contexts to display the NOS in the classroom, and the use of an explicit & reflective approach. The science teachers training must pay attention to the pointed aspects, and the science education should investigate them. La formación del profesorado para la implementación de una enseñanza de la naturaleza de la ciencia (NdC) con calidad es un aspecto clave de la didáctica de las ciencias actual. En este artículo, se exponen los componentes principales del Conocimiento Didáctico del Contenido (CDC) para la enseñanza de la NdC, como el conocimiento base que debe conseguir un profesor de ciencias en su desarrollo profesional. Se proponen un modelo integrador del CDC-NdC, varios contextos para presentar la NdC en el aula y el uso de un enfoque explícito y reflexivo. La formación del profesorado de ciencias debe prestar atención a los aspectos indicados y la didáctica de la ciencia investigarlos.
