Facing the challenge called “students at the keyboard”, thousand of elementary and kindergarten teachers enrolled in trainings for “the ITC use in a learning and teaching context”.
This article is a report on those sessions as experienced by two trainers who shared with the students their day-to-day practice of being a kindergarten teacher and a trainer of elementary school teachers.
The goal is to approach the theoretical outline and conceptual foundations involved in the educational process, to describe the methodology applied and, finally, to make a brief of the outcome of the learning process and possible changes on their educational practices.
