Este artículo analiza los beneficios del aprendizaje por indagación como un modelo de acción para una clase de inglés como lengua extranjera. En el presente, gracias a las tecnologías digitales, los estudiantes tienen más acceso a hablantes nativos del inglés y a información en la web que pueden ser grandes aliados en la adquisición de un idioma extranjero. Por su parte, los educadores desean conocer nuevas metodologías que mantengan a los estudiantes motivados y que a la vez les permita mayores oportunidades para construir conocimiento. Por medio del aprendizaje por indagación y la integración de tecnología en el currículo, los estudiantes pueden mejorar sus destrezas lingüísticas y a la vez conocer diferentes perspectivas de un mismo tema, discutir sobre distintos aspectos culturales y desarrollar habilidades sociales. 2014-03-24 2016-05-03T14:51:17Z 2016-05-03T14:51:17Z artículo científico http://revistas.ucr.ac.cr/index.php/rlm/article/view/14031 http://hdl.handle.net/10669/23694 eng Revista de Lenguas Modernas; Núm. 19 Copyright (c) 2014 Revista de Lenguas Modernas application/pdf Escuela de Lenguas Modernas, Universidad de Costa Rica Revista de Lenguas Modernas; Núm. 19 (2013) Revista de Lenguas Modernas; Núm. 19 (2013) 16591933
