THE UNIVERSAL SCHOOL AS A LIVING ORGANIZATION: CONTRIBUTION FOR PROMOTION OF THE INFORMATION BEYOND THE INDIVIDUAL

N. Correia

Portugal Telecom (PORTUGAL)
In the information society and knowledge economy (Drucker, 2000) in which we live, we considered relevant to evaluate what are the variables that allow children to turn seemingly normal, brilliant students.

That is, as they are prepared for incidents that life can bring them by translating these situations into opportunities (Cury, 2003). In this line of thought, Carneiro (2002) defines as being of particular importance given the environment in which an individual is incorporated in family, school and society.

According with this author that allows, in some way, to achieve the principle of excellence or, as the reverse of the medal, walk a path of academic failure. It was framed in this current research, as the object of investigation; we selected a primary school and two classes of the 6th year of primary education.

In this sense it was intended to determine the aspects that leverages the assumptions that we intend to analyze, such as types of individual and collective behaviour, motivations, interests, fears and frustrations, the explicit relationship with parents, teachers and vice versa.

The type of investigation we use may be appointed as case study. The methodology used was mixed, that is, we used qualitative and quantitative assumptions, including observations, semi-structured interviews and questionnaires.
The sample consisted of 40 students, 8 teachers and respective parents, in a private school in the neighbourhood of Lisbon.

From the evidence we collect, and based on the analysis we perform, we found that students who harbored greater respect for their peers who shared their knowledge and their experiences with other educational agents, denoted a tendency for the performance of the various school tasks in a more appropriate way that their colleagues.

Therefore, we infer, by way of conclusion the importance of considering the education of future executives of the globalized society we live in, the importance of having a living school capable of stimulate the development of more conscious citizens to develop a more sustainable society (Morin, 2002).
