BARRETO, Raquel Goulart. Technology and education: work and teacher's education. Educ. Soc. [online]. 2004, vol.25, n.89, pp.1181-1201. ISSN 1678-4626.

This paper aims at analyzing theoretical and ideological constructions regarding teachers' work and preparation, considering the discourse of current policies. In order to achieve this aim, it discusses: (1) technologies as a link between "globalization" and teaching; (2) a discussion on the ways the so-called "information society" approaches information and communication technologies; (3) the discoursive dimension of this approach; (4) the reduction of technologies to distance learning strategies for teaching certification and the sort of apartheid it brings about; (5) the core relation, between technologies and competencies; and (6) the trends identified in the present context: competency based education, focus on instructional materials and displacement of schools, as well as counter-hegemonic proposals.

Keywords : Information society; Technologies; Competencies; Schools; Teacher's education and work.
