OLIVARES-ROSADO, Justo; LOPEZ-COBO, Isabel  and  CONDE-JIMENEZ, Jesús. Motivational study on learning religion in Basic Education using ICT. Alteridad [online]. 2022, vol.17, n.1, pp.114-125. ISSN 1390-8642.

Motivation is an aspect that serves as a motor to awaken interest in assimilating a particular curricular unit. This research aims to determine the causes that cause demotivation in the students of Basic General Education (EGB) of a model religious educational institution and its influence on the interest in learning about religion, in order to incorporate ICT as a motivational teaching strategy. Methodologically, it is an investigation under the positivist paradigm of a non-experimental, ex post facto and transversal nature, of a descriptive and causal nature, with a documentary and field design. The type and depth level of the study is descriptive and explanatory-correlational with the participation of a sample of 268 students and eight religion teachers. Two types of questionnaires were designed, one aimed at students and the other at teachers. The hypothesis consisted in verifying if greater motivation and satisfaction of the students, greater learning of religion in Basic Education. The results show the presence of a low level of motivation and satisfaction in the student body due to deficiencies in the learning environment, as well as the use of traditional teaching methodologies that limit the active participation of the student. The need to apply alternative methodologies that incorporate ICT to increase student motivation and, therefore, academic performance is highlighted.
