Learning and technology: conflicts and chances


Juliana Machado-de-Carvalho

The author wonders how the dialogue between school and the new technologies used to understand the world is. This paper tells an experience developed by Brazilian schools and the NGO Cipó-Comunicação Interativa in an attempt to solve the conflict between school and the fast and omnipresent media, whose relevance in our society is increasing. Students and teachers want their pupils to become active and critical receivers on the one hand and creative learners on the other hand, using communication means.
