These reflections originated from our activities developed in the course of Pedagogy of a public university of Sao Paulo, centrally in the discipline of Didactic I, whose concerns are fixed around two fundamental questions that are reflected on the formation and the work of the teacher, the Importance of conceptualizing and situating education and teaching not only in function of its aims, but also emphasizing its political function and its specificity and, attaching to this question, the necessity of the theoretical appropriations that underlie pedagogical and didactic theories, and From which derive the different methods and techniques of teaching, among which those developed through the technologies.
