MANTOVANI, Ana Margô  and  SANTOS, Bettina Steren dos. The application of virtual digital technologies in the psychopedagogical context. Rev. psicopedag. [online]. 2011, vol.28, n.87, pp. 293-305. ISSN 0103-8486.

Virtual Digital Technologies (VDTs) bring new possibilities of interaction, communication and representation, enabling a wider range of applications in the psychopedagogical field, as they can become instruments for the investigation of the inadequate connections that occur in the learning process. However, for psychopedagogists to be protagonists in this process and attend to the demand of the digital generation, it is necessary to have experience with such technologies, in order to develop didactic-pedagogical competences, allied with technological-digital competences, which enable the interaction and use of these technologies in their psychopedagogical practice, institutional as well as clinical. In this context, we present a theoretical review on the psychopedagogical possibilities for using VDTs, highlighting contributions from the studies and teaching and psychopedagogical experiences of the authors in using these technologies. Based on these reflections, we believe that the use of VDTs in the psychopedagogical practice, due to their working in the field of virtual representations, activate the projection mechanisms, thus facilitating the investigation of meanings in the act of learning and the social representation that the subject makes of academic and informal knowledge and of himself, opening new paths for new meanings of learning.
