Educational psychology and digital information and communication technologies

In this study we aim at discussing the implications of digital information and communication technologies (DICT) in the context of Educational Psychology. This is a theoretical study supported in narrative review of the scientific literature that analyzed different sources of evidence present in books, articles and scientific events. The publications highlight that spaces such as classrooms are increasingly flexible, the occurrence of teaching and learning in different environments and the assumption of global learning environments in which the development of mobile technologies and wireless networks expands the possibilities of the educational practice. We emphasize the role of the teacher in the assimilation of DICT and its use in education reflexively. As a conclusion, the scope of Educational Psychology is enough to contemplate these changes, but it should produce knowledge that can contribute to the dialogue between the psychological knowledge, educational practices and digital information and communication technologies.
