USE OF TELEMATIC TOOLS AS A SUPPORT FOR TEACHERS’ TRAINING

Helena Caldeira, Carlos Gomes

Abstract

The use of telematic tools by online learning communities, through the true involvement of all the participants, allows strengthening of net learning models. These models, if adequately designed, may stimulate the development of competencies in teachers’ training. Technological evolution has made the use of telematic tools more and more of an option in distance learning; these tools have become an indispensable support for achievement of educational aims in learning institutions, namely through the provision of means for the interaction between participants. This work now aims at describing some of the results obtained from a study involving telematic tools in a model of online teachers’ training. In particular, we will describe the benefits and difficulties that were found and we add some reflections on solutions for the improvement of this model.
