PORTO, Tania Maria Esperon. Technologies of communication and information in schools: possible relation... constructed relations. Rev. Bras. Educ. [online]. 2006, vol.11, n.31, pp. 43-57. ISSN 1413-2478. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1413-24782006000100005.
We are facing new ways of understanding, perceiving, feeling and learning within which affection, imagination and values cannot be left aside. Although school still highlights "cognition", the young students are not so much interested in the contents and themes of their studies, as much as they are interested in the relationships that are (or can be) established in the school environment, mediated by technologies of communication. In this paper, initially, I intend to reflect upon the relations between school educational action and technology, to show, later on, how I have devised a process of teacher training in schools with the help of the media. I am referring to a set of procedures and technological means which put in discussion individual questions, related to the interests and the subjectivity of individuals, and to social questions, related to the socio-cultural environments in which individuals participate. The school and the technological means of communication are similar inasmuch as they both deal with reality and are place for acquiring knowledge; thus, to educate with the media and for the media is indispensable for school education because it allows the creation of an favourable environment to daily life.
