Student thesis: Master's Thesis


This studyintends to be a theoretical and analytic instrument which aims to characterise the subject of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in the vocational training system. This characterization has its basis in the results of an inquiry made to the students of three different vocational schools of the county of Ponta Delgada, in S. Miguel Island, Azores. New challenges have been set to schools and to teachers in the teaching of ICT. Some years ago until now, a reflection has been made about the objectives and the way ICT can be integrated in the school curriculum and in the way it can create a wider interest and new ways of knowledge for a technological lifelong learning which is a very important condition for the development of a society of information and knowledge. With this study, we consider that we will create a space, means and strategies to improve or consolidate the organization and future activities in this area. The analysis that the reader can make of the learning goals for ICT published by the Ministry of Education in the website ANQEP – National Agency for Qualification and Vocational Training is the natural complement for the understanding and discussion that is intended to stimulate trough the results obtained. With this study we intend to determine and make a reflection, through an inquiry to the students of vocational courses, about the potential of the subject of ICT in the vocational training system.
