Abstract: The growing social interest in landscape seems to be accompanied by a rise of its presence in the territorial policies of public administrations. However, at least in Andalucia, such interest has not meant a higher knowledge of the landscapes in this community by citizens. As a result, it is necessary to make an effort to increase its presence in the different syllabus of the educational system. For this purpose the landscape must be included in teaching and, taking advantage of its transversal and motivational potential, turned it into a real open book of significant learning, innovative and active. The proposal of several teaching itineraries through different Andalusian landscapes represents the best argument of such approaches.
Translated abstract: El creciente interés social por el paisaje ha incrementado la presencia de éste en las políticas territoriales de las administraciones públicas. Sin embargo, al menos en Andalucía, dicho interés no ha supuesto un mayor conocimiento de los paisajes de la comunidad por la ciudadanía, por lo que se hace necesario realizar un esfuerzo para incrementar su presencia en los programas de los distintos niveles de enseñanza. Para ello se debe incorporar el paisaje a la docencia y, aprovechando su potencial transversal y motivador, convertirlo en un verdadero libro abierto de aprendizaje significativo, innovador y activo. La propuesta de unos itinerarios docentes por distintos paisajes andaluces se constituye aquí en el mejor argumento práctico de aquellos planteamientos.
