SANT'ANA, Claudinei de Camargo; AMARAL, Rúbia Barcelos  y  BORBA, Marcelo de Carvalho. The use of software in the professional practice of Mathematics teachers. Ciênc. educ. (Bauru) [online]. 2012, vol.18, n.3, pp.527-542. ISSN 1516-7313.

This study is the result of on-line continuing education courses for teachers taught through a partnership between UNESP and a national network of basic education schools. The courses aimed to familiarize mathematics teachers with information technology resources, specifically two software programs, Geometricks and Winplot, and their potential use in the classroom. After having taught the course for several years, we sought to identify "if and how" the software programs were being incorporated into the professional practice of teachers who have access to computer laboratories, continuing education, and technical support. Based on on-line interviews, we were able to map the different choices made by the teachers: non-use; utilization in a manner similar (or not) to their experience in the on-line course; and interdisciplinary use. These teachers "re-translated" their experience in the on-line course for application in their own practice in diverse ways.
