Reflexões sobre os efeitos da pandemia na aprendizagem digital

Ana Nobre, Ana Mouraz


No início da terceira década do século XXI,  mudanças significativas estão  a ocorrer nas Instituições de Ensino Superior (IES). Se a  necessidade de oferecer educação superior a mais   estudantes, e mais diversificados, vinha constituindo um desafio, imposto pela globalização e pela economia do conhecimento, a pandemia obrigou as IES a reequacionar a sua oferta digital. Embora o Ensino Superior use extensivamente o e-learning, o ensino on-line, o ensino a distância, ou alguma outra forma de educação tecnológica, importa refletir sobre os efeitos que tal uso trará à reconfiguração da aprendizagem digital, mesmo num período pós pandemia. É esse propósito que estrutura este texto. Parte-se da literatura recente sobre a aprendizagem digital e seus contornos para refletir sobre as possibilidades e dificuldades que a pandemia lhe trouxe.
