THE TECHNOLOGY-MEDIATED EDUCATION IN AMAZONAS: A MEANS OF INCLUSION

The Amazonas is the largest Brazilian State, with an area of 1,559,159,148 km², making it the ninth largest subdivision in the world. Considering that it is embedded in the middle of the Amazon forest, the State has a limitated access by road.Thus, few highways are found in the State and, for the most part, are located on the surroundings of its capital.This limited mobility ends up affecting the offer of Higher Education in the Amazonas. The need of providing Higher Education of good quality in its 62 municipalities and considering the geographical peculiarities of the State, where the most important transport route is the river, led the University of Amazonas (UEA) to seek an innovative alternative to ensure education to the population living in the rural areas. Thus, through Technology-Based Presential Teaching, which uses communications technology, such as videoconferencing and interactive collaboration systems, UEA was able to break the concept of physical separation between student and teacher, since it approached them through virtual integration. With the Technology-Based Presential Teaching (EPMT), which integrates the classic educational references to new technologies and means of telecommunication, UEA enables the training of teaching staff, offering undergraduate, baccalaureate and technical courses. Since it put into practice the offer of technology-mediated courses for the interior of the State, education has advanced and met the demands for training of human resources at undergraduate and postgraduate levels in a State with an extensive territory and with enormous difficulties of locomotion and infrastructure and it is not in the interests of qualified teachers to establish residence in their distant municipalities.

Objectives:
Identify the methodological strategies of the method and tools which facilitate the development of the proposed curriculum; To study the resources and technical materials used for the production, recording, edition, and transmission of the pedagogical content and interaction of the students with the teachers; and Analyze the means used to ensure the vertical and horizontal articulation, in an interdisciplinary way, of the academic activities carried out.

Methods:
Inductive study with descriptive and bibliographical research and with a data collection technique in order to identify in how many municipalities Higher Education is employed in the Technology-Based Presential Teaching method.

Conclusion:
Education, as mentioned above, is a fundamentaland indispensable right and, therefore, mandatory. In the case of municipalities located within the State of Amazonas, the difficulty of access, which results in days for the river displacement and those that access is possible by air, which financial cost hinders the movement of people to the capital, the aim of allowing continuity of studies beyond high school and qualifying professionals, the Technology-Bases Presenting Teaching is the opportunity for the continuity of the offer of education. The alternative found by UEA was able to break the issue of physical separation between student and teacher, since it approached them by the virtual integration and by the presencial conditions of the method technology.
