Abstract

The need of the Digital Technologies of Information and Communication ( DTICs ) in education is clear at this moment. Not long ago, it was not possible to imagine the size of the social changes caused by the use of the internet. But now, due to the internet, we have a huge demand of teaching and learning new skills as a challenge. In recent decades, there have been many studies and attempts to find the best way to use the TDICs in the school context, since the insertion of technological devices in the classroom until the changes of the way of thinking methodologies and pedagogical strategies. Currently, trying to be more innovative,some schools around the world try to align the approach of Blended Learning which, through different teaching methodologies that act jointly, seeking the best blend of online and classroom, between digital and physical, aiming to customize the way to the individual learning but always considering the social context. This project proposes to research and develop an online educational system that helps and also encourages continuous improvement in the innovation of teaching and educational institution process. The system will consist of tools to facilitate the suitability of the Blended Learning approach and the customization process of teaching. Currently, for this to be done at the school, it is necessary to search a lot of digital tools that demands background to use them and causing confusion. In addition, the teacher is overwhelmed while keeps track of their students, needs to learn how deal with different tools and prepare lessons considering all these variables. Thus, the system proposed here wants to facilitate the teacher using methodologies consistent with the learning objectives demanded by current social practices, doing individual monitoring of each student, through the data available by the system already transformed into relevant information, and supporting that the process of teaching innovation be consistent with the national curriculum parameter settings.
