Abstract

GARCIA LOPEZ, Ileana et al. Histoweb: an educational tool for teaching Cuban History in medical sciences. EDUMECENTRO [online]. 2021, vol.13, n.4, pp.243-260.  Epub Dec 31, 2021. ISSN 2077-2874.

Background:

it is necessary to achieve motivation and activate the creative thinking and scientific culture of the students from the History of Cuba classes using educational tools.

Objective:

to design a website for the teaching of Cuban History, in connection with the local history and medical sciences of the Sagua la Grande municipality in the training of health professionals.

Methods:

a qualitative study was carried out at the Faculty of Medical Sciences of Sagua la Grande during 2018-2019. Theoretical methods were used: analysis-synthesis, induction-deduction, historical-logical and modeling; empirical ones: documentary analysis, participant observation, group interview with students, interview with teachers and criteria of specialists.

Results:

the teaching aids are insufficient to contribute to the improvement of Cuban History, where the use of the traditional ones prevailed in the classes; The basic and complementary bibliographies established by the program do not include contents on local history or the health of the municipality; Students and teachers showed interest in using technology to design a website that facilitates the aforementioned contents in connection with the History of Cuba. Students have skills in the use of electronic technology; reason why the development of Histoweb is justified.

Conclusions:

the website constitutes an educational tool for teaching the History of Cuba in medical sciences; its design allows consulting unique documents on local history and public health of the municipality, it also compiles a wide bibliography researched in different historical sources.

Keywords : medical informatics applications; information technologies and communication projects; students; education, medical.
