The learning-centered approach implies a new way of thinking and developing training and
professional practice carried out by a teacher. It questions the paradigm centered on repetitive teaching,
of transmissive-receptive cut that prioritizes the acquisition of declarative, inert, and
decontextualized. This proposal has as its main reference the constructivist conception and
sociocultural learning and teaching, according to which learning consists of an active and
conscious that its purpose is the construction of meanings and the attribution of meaning to the contents
and experiences on the part of the learner.
This approach consists of an intellectual act but at the same time social, affective, and interaction within a
community of sociocultural practices. The learning process takes place thanks to the actions of
pedagogical mediation that involve a coordinated activity of intention-action-reflection between the
students and the teacher, around a diversity of objects of knowledge and with the intervention of
certain languages and instruments. Furthermore, it occurs in specific socio-cultural and historical contexts,
from which it cannot be abstracted, that is, it has a situated character.
