It is concluded that the teacher is called to innovate his pedagogical practices and to facilitate the achievement of the intentional competences from his educational work banishing the traditional use of traditional methodologies with strong impact in the learning results and therefore in the academic performance. It recognizes, also, the protagonist role of the students themselves in the improvement of their learning and academic results according to the appropriate selection of learning strategies and their motivational implication towards the study.
