VILLARRUEL FUENTES, Manuel. The semantic meaning of scientific research at the institutes of higher technological education in Veracruz, Mexico. Cuad. Investig. Educ. [online]. 2018, vol.9, n.1, pp.47-58. ISSN 1510-2432.

Science today, as dominant thinking, has impacted decisively on models and educational approaches at higher level. This has conditioned the development of curricular and didactic proposals, which to a greater or lesser extent have been implemented in the different levels of education in Mexico, in spite of the lack, to this date, of significant evidence of an effective achievement of its purposes and goals. Such is the case of the higher level in technology (National Institute of Technology of Mexico), which since 2012 has deployed an integral educational model in all its institutions. In this context, it is necessary an approach from different angles that explores both the educational phenomenon associated with the scientific training of the student and the assessment that students make of their role in this process and of the research that is carried out within their schools. Based on this concept, a study has been conducted under the Semantic Differential technique, aiming at identifying the perceptions of students about such aspects of their scientific literacy. The study covered a total of 835 registered students (regular), from 9 schools (33% of total), registered in the State of Veracruz, Mexico. The results showed that students have a low image of themselves and their classmates, as well as of the scientific education they are receiving and the research carried out within the campuses.
