The theory of constructivist learning, also known as discovery learning is a learning methodology in which the student instead of receiving the content passively, discovers the concepts and their relationships and rearranges them to adapt them to their cognitive scheme . This method transforms students into protagonists of the learning process, who develop research skills through an inductive method. Therefore, it is configured as an ideal tool to situate students in a sociocultural dimension, favoring the understanding of the appearance and socio-historical construction of the concept of cultural heritage taking into account the transformations of late modernity and the new current situation defined as globalization This work aims to assess the degree of acceptance and satisfaction of students, in relation to the process of implementation of learning by discovery, through anonymous surveys in which the different strategies and tools used in this methodology are analyzed, with the aim of improving and optimize the design of the programming.
