Abstract:Leonardo da Vinci, Alberto Durero, Leon Baptista Alberti, Andrea Vignola were pioneers in the use of tools to provide with scientific foundations the art of the representation on the plane as a form of methodological spreading of their theories and principles.
Through the History, many different artists have also used their tools and machines designed with the same intention.
Nowadays, in the age of technology, another much more precise and powerful tools can be used for the learning and teaching of the eternal problem of the representation and its diffusion.
Dynamic Geometry has been used, specially for learning geometry at the primary, secondary and high school, but its use is not frequent as a pedagogic resource in the teaching of projection systems. Different kinds of interactive drawings can be used for different purposes as, for example, to teach how the position of the view point concerns in one ,two or three points perspective, or to see the influence of the point of light position at the study of shadows
Only one interactive drawing, can contain the information of tens of illustrations, but above all, can allow the manipulation and the interaction in real time from any place in the world.
The purpose of this work is to make to know the possibilities that the use of these resources can have for the methodological and didactic development in the learning-teaching processes of the eternal problem of the three-dimensional representation on the plane.
Keywords: teaching-learning, perspective, dynamic geometry.
