Abstract Title: The use of smartphones and the motivational change of the pre-service elementary teachers
Abstract: The pre-service elementary teachers have difficulties to understand physics but they will have to teach physics, now many elementary teachers try to avoid it because they do not trust in themselves to teach these concepts. Therefore, it is important to motivate them and to eliminate their fear.
The experience consisted of teaching physics with internet and the smartphones. These tools helped the professor to promote the cooperative learning. The professor assessed the students learning each class. The students only had to connect to Internet with the smartphone and answer the questions. At the end of the experience the students had to answer a survey about their learning and their motivation.
