PAIXAO, Pablo Boaventura Sales et al. The practice of literacy in Health Information and Communication: the opinion of the community health agents about the Digital Inclusion project in Sergipe, Brazil. Interface (Botucatu) [online]. 2011, vol.15, n.38, pp.937-946. ISSN 1807-5762. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1414-32832011000300029.
This article presents the initial results of the Project of Digital Inclusion of Community Health Agents (CHA) of Sergipe, Northeastern Brazil, when they carried out the practice of literacy in Information and Communication. This happened through workshops developed as a strategy for putting the CHA of Sergipe in contact with the Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). Effective ways of social infoinclusion are identified, based on Habermas' Theory of Communicative Action and on Paulo Freire's thought. The qualitative approach was used, as well as the typology of Case Study and Focus Group for scrutinizing the practices of literacy in Information and Communication, using distance learning.
