RICOY, María Carmen  and  COUTO, Maria João V. S.. The information and communication technologies as resources in secondary education: a case study. Rev. Lusófona de Educação [online]. 2009, n.14, pp.145-156. ISSN 1645-7250.

Trying to correspond to the challenges of the school of the 21st century, with this work it is intended to know the conditions of accessibility of the pupils to the ICT, the motivador role of these and other resources, giving special attention to Mathematics. The presented work results of case study developed through an inquiry, handed to 97 pupils of four groups of a secondary school (in 10th and 11th grades) of the north of Portugal. The main results and conclusions are: the access to the computers and to the Internet is sufficiently generalized; pupils are motivated to study and even consider the importance of Mathematics in their formation; they consider the use of the Internet a motivator element in the teach-learning process. The use of the computers does not necessarily contribute to their success. However, they would like to be able to study more through the Internet then for books and they think they would work harder if their projects could be done with the help of computers.
