The thesis presents evidence that the implementation of the Interactive Whiteboard (IWB) in schools of the municipal school network in Araraquara was not accompanied by a public policy that guaranteed adequate pedagogical conditions for its use in the teaching and learning process. Such evidence derives from action research conducted in partnership with teachers and coordination over three years using Learning Objects (LO) and other resources. Concepts, theories, reports and other analytical tools from the social sciences and education were explored, focusing especially on public policies. The results suggest that, in the case studied, there was a lack of effective teacher training program, offer of LOs selected according to classroom content, adequate connection infrastructure in schools, and other necessary resources. To mitigate, it is proposed: to focus on the use of IWB in the initial grades of elementary education, to develop a repository of LO itself, to correct technical problems regarding the functioning of the internet of the municipal school network, either with the expansion of wi-fi networks or with the implementation of wired networks, to improve technical support for the maintenance of IWB and other ICT, to promote continuing education courses for the use of ICT, seeking not only to develop the teachers' capacities regarding the daily use of technologies, but mainly for the development of methods and practices of teaching, among other things.
