MetadataShow full item record
The new information and communication technologies - ICT - dictate a new scenario for the classroom. Many are the expectations of learning through this new tool. To do so, we must think of the paradigm shift from the point of view of the teacher, a fundamental agent in the learning process within the school. The following research sought to identify the limits and possibilities of the use of ICTs in the classroom, listing the main changes needed to be effective within this process. A total of 150 teachers and 7 directors were interviewed, distributed in 10 state schools in the city of Piracicaba - SP. In view of the results of the research, it has become fundamental to rethink school practices, to understand ICT as a means to foster critical discussion among teachers in order to outline ways to orient creative and reflective teaching practice, in which ICT could be understood as a space of possibility of Creation, individual or collaborative and not only used as a way to attract the attention of students or to sensitize them to the contents proposed in the lesson.
