Abstract

This study identified the acceptance of undergraduates in Pedagogia and teachers in the early years of elementary school, participants of an online extension course, called SuperLogo, and investigated how they proposed the use of technological resources. We analyzed the involvement of participants in the discussion forums about SuperLogo and the process of lesson planning which proposed the use of the software. The analysis show that the course participants were receptive to the proposal and that the reason that initiated the activity was the need for them to prepare lessons using SuperLogo as a teaching resource. Thus, they mobilized the software, pedagogical ideas, ideas of teaching strategies, mathematical concepts, their knowledge about student learning, among others.
