Análisis de la aplicación de Monopolio en un curso financiero de una universidad privada desde la percepción de los estudiantes



Palabras clave:

Monopolio, educación financiera, inmersión, autodeterminación


El presente trabajo evalúa la aplicación del juego Monopolio desde la perspectiva de estudiantes de una universidad privada. Es una investigación cualitativa, de carácter descriptivo fenomenológico. Se usó como técnica un grupo focal (5 participantes) para evaluar desde las percepciones de los estudiantes presenciales. Siguiendo los antecedentes y continuando con lo desarrollado por la teoría de la autodeterminación y de la inmersión en juegos, se encuentra que existe una reacción positiva ante la motivación para desarrollarse académica y actitudinalmente gracias a la aplicación del juego; no obstante, la naturaleza hibrida de la sesión generó problemas técnicos que impidieron una inmersión.
