BISOL, Cláudia Alquati; BREMM, Eduardo Scarantti e VALENTINI, Carla Beatris. Deaf adolescents' blogs: writing and construction of meaning. Psicol. Esc. Educ. (Impr.) [online]. 2010, vol.14, n.2, pp.291-299. ISSN 2175-3539. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1413-85572010000200011.
The learning and the meaningful appropriation of the written language by the deaf can be promoted by means of the use of widely spread and available communication technologies. This work presents the analysis of the narrative resources used by three deaf adolescents fluent in Libras to organize their lived experience through written productions in weblogs (using the Portuguese language, their second language). It is a qualitative exploratory study. A hermeneutic analysis of the narratives based on Paul Ricoeur was proposed. Although there were mistakes in the written language, the productions could be considered narratives because they express attempts to weave stories. However, the transmission of meaning was not always successful, indicating difficulties in the learning of the written language and in the understanding that it can be a means of communicating with the other. The need of creating strategies that strengthen the notion of the written language as a means of production of meaning is emphasized.
