Student thesis: Master's Thesis


On the following work we pretend to distinct the introduction and usage of the tablet as a digital guide as a replacement of the traditional paper guide, on the context of the Agrupamento de Escolas de Cuba. Being a completely new and unexplored technology on the education context, supported by the Direção de Serviços da Região Alentejo and supervised by the Universidade Católica Portuguesa, in order to change the teaching/learning nowadays, it urges to know the reality of the already referred technology usage in a specific school context, in order to identify possible changes, difficulties or limitations. With that in mind, after analyzing what has been wrote about this topic and his theoretical concepts, we defined the problem, pointed prepositions and selected our investigation guide questions. After, we added our method option description which led us to chose the “study case”. The data analyzes was made by crossing information from different sources and instruments (documents, reviews and questionnaires made to both students and teachers). Our results have shown that the tablet might be a resource able to catch students attention and be a motivational and participation agent. For teachers the tablet might be an excellent resource in the application of innovating strategies and students encouragement to develop their knowledge and own thinking. As the main obstacle, we can highlight technical problems and the time to prepare interactive material.
