EXPERIENCES WITH WEB 2.0 IN SCHOOL SETTINGS: A FRAMEWORK TO FOSTER EDUCATIONAL PRACTICES BASED ON A PERSONAL LEARNING ENVIRONMENT PERSPECTIVE

<div><p>Abstract: Studies involving the use of digital technologies in educational settings, based on the concept of Personal Learning Environments (PLE), show the possibilities of enhancing educational processes through a pedagogical approach, which benefits from the affordances of technologies. We understand that a PLE is organized with tools, mechanisms, and activities that each student uses to read, produce and share. These actions are possible through different web 2.0 applications. This study aims to foster educational practices with technologies in the context of the classroom from the perspective of the PLE. The research, based on a qualitative approach, is organized into two phases. First, we propose a framework to assist teachers in the selection of web tools to foster educational practices based on PLE. Second, we present and analyze the results of a qualitative study, which involves the use of the proposed framework in educational practices conducted in the final years of elementary education in a private school in Brazil. Results point out that the proposed framework can be used to support the teachers in designing educational practices involving the use of digital technologies to promote the student’s PLE.</p></div>
