Uso del Agrupador Inteligente para la mejora de los grupos de trabajo

System Organization subjet practical activities are conducted in groups. With strong emphasis on the Final Work Integrator (FWI), where groups must be established and work efficiently with the aim of achieving a quality FWI.

The armed groups in previous instructional cycles was performed leaving left to the will of students. During the class period, students said conflicts with his bandmates and excuses to participate in another group or decimate their own This paper discusses the use of an Intelligent System Grouper (ISG) developed in order to group students according to their learning styles according to Kolb’s classification applied to the field and classroom system. The fact that a teacher has a tool to assess learning styles is of paramount importance, since:
● The students, to think and act in the knowledge of his style, learning to learn;
● The tutor / teacher can plan better and different learning strategies;
● The system can be adapted to each type of learner.
● Students develop habits that will complement and allows the actual commencement in
collaborative work.
● Collaborative learning allows students to learn better.
It was decided to take two courses of similar characteristics for the experience. One of the courses are applied SAI (SAI-Course), a committee of 56 students, and the other were grouped randomly (not SAI-Course), committee of 45 students. Once this procedure groups were formed as follows:
 SAI- Course, 12 groups. Where students joined groups with peers mostly unknown.
 Not-SAI-Course, 12 groups. Where fellow students joined groups known or chosen by themselves.
In both courses, students should get to know, interact, collaborate and learn to work together. What the Course SAI had an advantage is that members of each group had different learning styles and had a potential advantage: they could complement each other and work better. The purpose of this project is to reduce the difficulties inherent in the interaction and group experience that lead to the disintegration of the groups.
