“You need to study so you don’t have to deal with the hoe.” Mauricio Teixeira Mendes heard this phrase many times at school. He was born and raised in the rural community of João Afonso, located in the municipality of Itamarandepa, in the Jequitinunha Valley. In basic education, his relationship with the school was turbulent. This is because the educational institution in which Mauricio studied, although located in the countryside, followed the model of the urban school and denied the traditions of society.
Interest in this teaching model became stronger during his degree in Rural Education at the Federal University of Vales do Jequitinhonha e Mucuri (UFVJM), when he noticed the incompatibility between school literacy practices and those practiced outside the walls of the institution, primarily with regard to the use of digital technologies .
After completing his graduation, he decided to continue investigating the topic in the master’s degree in the Postgraduate Program in Language Studies at UFMG. This work is the subject of episode 108 of the show here is the flagfrom Rádio UFMG Educativa.
To develop the thesis, Maurício Teixeira used a methodology called narrative research, which focuses on the life histories of subjects, who are understood as collaborators in the work. In parallel, the students interacted with the researcher through a website created exclusively for this purpose.
The hands-on activity aims to check students’ skills in digital environments. This was a solution found due to the pandemic, rendering the researcher’s initial plans to closely monitor students in school environments, such as classrooms and computer labs, futile.
The research findings show that the technologies are not designed for rural education and that inequality of access remains a barrier to overcome.
