Rodolfo Fernandes Esteves, Silvio Henrique Fiscarelli, José Luís Bizelli


This article focuses on presenting the results from the research Barreiras para implementação da Lousa Digital Interativa: um estudo de caso, thus contributing to the systematization of knowledge about the implementation of this didactic-pedagogic resource. Starting from the set of barriers listed in the BECTA report of the 2004, we have elaborated a panorama composed of the barriers, their main characteristics and whether they occur in the context of the Brazilian school being studied. The field study consisted of an analysis of available hardware and software, interviews with the principal and teachers, as well as direct observation in the classrooms. As a result, we will present an analysis of the barriers in the aforementioned report which were found in the Brazilian context. Furthermore, two new barriers emerge in Brazilian public schools.
