In this project, we will offer ongoing training workshops in the Dr. Carlos Augusto de Freitas Villalva Jr. Estate School, in the São Paulo-SP. We have three objectives: (i) to investigate, after the workshops given by the project proponent, how the exchange between knowledge of the University can favor teaching practices in basic education, in particular, didactic resources that use digital technologies; (ii) to verify the impacts of the insertion of the digital technologies in the continuous formation of the teachers of the basic education; (iii) to propose didactic activities, involving digital technologies, that can be replicated in the classroom and in other workshops pertinent to a continuous training of teachers of high school. The justification of the research is due to the fact of the historical and social changes that have required an educational practices more appropriate the digital technologies. The theoretical framework is the studies of Pimenta (2015), Oliveira (1988; 2001), Guatti (2010), Rojo (2014), Fazenda (1999), Day (2001), Zeichner (2008), Mattar (2018, 2017, 2013), Moraes; Suanno (2014), Kenski (2012), Moraes (2008), Behrens (2005; 2006), Valente (2006), Prensky (2001), Ferreira (1988) , Nóvoa (2017, 1985), among others. The methodology used presents a qualitative, exploratory, interpretive approach (GIL, 2003). The expected results intend to confirm our hypothesis of the importance of reflecting from the teacher training the relevance of using the digital apparatuses as teaching tools in the classroom. The expected results are estimated to demonstrate the achievement of a pilot project of continuing education of high school teachers. (AU)
