The Marist colleges undergo a technological renewal

16/10/2008: Brazil

The Centre-North Brazilian Province aims at making the classrooms of the Marist colleges more dynamic, and even more attractive, vibrant and interactive. That is why it has created “CONECTE Marista”, a technological tool for pedagogical development aiming at creating a place of learning and formation for professors and spreading a more modern culture among the Marist school community.

The potential uses of this tool are numerous and they all increase the students’ role in the teaching–learning relationship. They include the following: “ConectMude”, which enables professors to change and adapt the contents; “ConecteActividades”, to develop further curricular, remedial or evaluation activities; “ConecteCrie”, which facilitates the development of works using resources such as videos, texts and pictures; “ConecteVirtual”, a file of activities and studies for the students.

Some colleges are already making use of it. These centres are extremely satisfied with the instrument and together with the students they are developing activities that make the school more dynamic and interesting.

In the words of Patricia Dantas, the person in charge of the laboratory at the Marist College of Taguatinga and a user of CONECTE: “One of the goals of the use of the computer in teaching is to make it an agent of the transformation of education. By using the “CONECTE Marista” platform, one can learn by playing, which from the student’s point of view is the most enjoyable way to learn”. And she adds: “In this context, the student becomes more receptive and motivated to absorb the knowledge he or she is offered, in order to develop his or her intelligence more rapidly as well as his or her learning skills.
