The Educaplay interactive platform for the learning of mathematics in populations with special educational needs

Mathematics, in populations with Special Educational Needs, must be worked from the context of the students and with problems that they can show leading them to apply the concepts and solutions to everyday life. In this context, the present study is based on the objective of implementing pedagogical strategies based on the use of the Educaplay interactive platform for the learning of mathematics in populations with special educational needs in the "Carmen Teresiano" school in the city of San José de Cúcuta, Colombia. From the theoretical point of view, it is based on humanist theory and the cognitive paradigm; on the other hand, it is based on the manual of the teacher of children with special educational needs of the "Ministerio de Educación", Chile. Methodologically, it is a quasi-experimental study of pre- and post-test with only one group. The results of the pretest reflect deficiencies in the use of basic mathematical contents in the target population, which allowed for the design and implementation of an intervention plan and then to reapply, under the same conditions, the post-test. This resulted in an increase in the execution of the questions posed, which demonstrates the effectiveness of the intervention plan.
