Weblogs: The Screen as a Discursive and Representational Territory


  • Rosangela Silveira Garcia Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul




This article intends to be constituted as a reflection about weblogs, while a space - in the screen territory - for the production of educators’ speech and scenario of the representations constructed by them. Weblogs are understood not only as cyber diaries, but as an extension of the individual identity of the subjects in the cyberspace and publicizing the representations of self and the world they have. That subjectivity is constituted in a social practice that, in turn, establishes ideology as meanings of reality materialized in discursive practices. Social representation is then a form of socially constructed and shared knowledge, that weaves the construction of a common reality in the social group. So, taking a scenario of weblogs of four literacy teachers, this study aims to identify in the speech – deterritorialized of the school space for the digital world – of these teachers, the characteristics of the subject-teacher there constituted and the representations that reflect and / or refract social features in the voice of these educators in their virtual diaries. Also, during the research I have seeked to understand if to the teachers' speeches is undertaken a practice of meaningful learning or a teaching proposal that aims at the mere transmission of knowledge.
