Text writted by scribe Valdemir Mota de Menezes

Good morning colleagues,

I would like to talk about the technologies and teaching methodologies, adding that if the technological resources are used wisely and not so focused on education, they, instead of helping, just disturbing. These days I was talking to Raphael, pedagogical coordinator of the School Esmeraldo Tarquin and he told me it has been difficult to control students on the use of mobile phones.

Many students do not pay attention in class and just want to be talking on the phone, sending text messages and other electronic games playing on mobile handsets. The issue is so serious that has been frequent cases of indiscipline of students who do not obey the order to turn off cell phones in the classroom. Computer rooms of many schools also need supervision for children and adolescents do not derail the focus, and instead of doing research, are on Orkut, MSN and Internet games.

Many schools already have access to blocking channels of entertainment and pornography. The task of educating the young that they should use technology resources to enrich themselves in knowledge has been an arduous task for teachers.
