Abstract

This article presents the data of a research study which aimed to know the perception of a group of students of environmental issues, using photos as a learning tool. These students attended a curricular unit of Environmental Education (EA) in a Portuguese higher school of education. The present approach mixed research and teaching processes with artistic education and related them with Digital Humanities, an area that applies to the use of new technologies to problems attended in human sciences. For this purpose, the research process included three parts, starting with the task of taking a sequence of photos for later analysis: preparation in the classroom, outdoor activities and follow-up work. Accordingly, the sequences of photos were presented and analyzed in the classroom, the frequency of the different issues calculated, and a questionnaire was administered to the students, with the aim of identifying their understanding of the three goals defined for the EA in Portugal: to decarbonise society, to turn the economy circular and to value the territory. The sequences of photos were classified by the researchers according to the three goals mentioned above. Finally, the educational contribution of a visual approach in the field of culture is analyzed and the impact of HD in educational research is discussed.
