The social and technological evolution reaches the school, so the pedagogies implemented in it no longer correspond to the expectations of students and society. There is a need to do different, innovate to make the teaching and learning process more natural and engaging for students, articulate and meaningful. We propose a pedagogy in which students are the producers of resources that they use in the learning process. This study aims to understand the importance of meaningful learning, focused on cognition, behavior and affectivity. In this sense, the Flipped Classroom methodology was used. In Primary School, Storytelling and Video Recording were experienced as knowledge enhancement resources. In Higher Education collaborative and oriented research was experimented and the results were treated, synthesized and shared in presentations made by the students and presented by them to them. Methodologically it is a case study whose data collection, in Primary Education, was made from the collection of reflective narratives carried out by trainees regarding the pedagogical practices implemented in real contexts. In Higher Education the data collection was performed by the teacher through direct observation. The data, in both situations, were objects of thematic analysis. The results point out that the pedagogy "Made by Them to Them" (1) activates previous knowledge, (2) promotes personal and group efforts in achieving better results, (3) creates emotion in the learning process, since it generates involvement, recognition of oneself and of others, of places and tasks. It was concluded that involving students in their learning process through active and participatory methodologies makes learning more meaningful and leads to the construction of learning in an active, participative and autonomous way.
