THIESEN, Juares da Silva. Times and spaces in the curricular organization: a reflection about on the dynamics of school processes. Educ. rev. [online]. 2011, vol.27, n.1, pp. 241-260. ISSN 0102-4698. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-46982011000100011.
The present article presents an overview of concepts of time and space in the curricular organization, with focus on the dynamics of schooling processes. It initially highlights how these aspects were conceived during modernity under the influence of the mechanicist/positivist thought, pointing out some of the criticisms to that conception by current researchers. The text indorses a rereading of such concepts in the present time, which may result in important changes in the current curricular organization. It indorses that the rereading of curricular time and space concepts is being stimulated in contexts that include information democratization through "WWW", economic globalization, development of communication and information technologies, expansion of Long Distance Education and, very expressively, the contributions of modern approaches about curriculum and about childhood.
