GOMES, Henriette Ferreira. The informational environment and its technologies in building up senses and meanings. Ci. Inf. [online]. 2000, vol.29, n.1, pp.61-70. ISSN 0100-1965. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-19652000000100007.
In the process of building up knowledge, the subjects interact among themselves, being inserted in a cultural environment. That is achieved by the aid of several communication and information technologies, which become relevant in producing and making use of information within the context of formal education. With the support of technological devices, man recreates his cultural spaces and enlarges the amount of knowledge and its circulation forms. At the same time, he explores new possibilities of apprehension and reconstruction of meanings of the world, by transforming knowledge acquisition into a dynamic and complex process.
