New technologies and teaching of history: possible and necessary relations


This work is part of the framework of action research (THILOLLENT, 2002) and has as its primary goal the improvement of Public Education of the State of São Paulo. The research will focus on an action-pedagogical project, referenced by the Curriculum of History of the State of São Paulo, and will be developed in two classrooms of 7th grade of Elementary School of the São Paulo Public School System, using information and communications technology (ICT). The project will involve collaboration with members of the Research Group "Public policies and democratization of education in Brazil", coordinated by the applicant, and the teachers of History and the management team of the schools as well. The reason that motivated the research is the perception the school cannot stay aside neither resist to the development of information and communications technology (ICT), particularly the Internet, since these technological advances are part of the way of being of young people nowadays. This dynamic contrasts starkly with the school, according to the authors and theorists such as PRENSKY (2001), SANTOS, BS & RADTKE (2005), CASTELLS (2005), Moran (2000) . It is not intended to replace the pedagogical practices: on the contrary, the objective is to insert the resources of information and communications technology significantly at school and in the classroom in order to make the lessons of History more attractive and participatory for students. It is, in addition to a proposal to contribute to the consolidation of already deployed “Access Program School”, proposed by the State Government, in 2008, “in order to promote digital, social inclusion and encourage the use of the Internet by users of the teaching of the state system schools.
