Methodological Confluence to Understand Flor De Ceibo
Ana María Casnati Guberna, Dr. Cognitive Analyst

From 2007, Uruguay implanted a policy of Information and Communication Technology – ICT, which has three important features: i) universality in public education; ii) provision of computers for all students in primary and secondary education; iii) free access to ICTs for all families in the country. Learning, electronically mediated, is not restricted to the educational institutional environment because the insertion of telematics in everyday life is also promoted. In this scenario the Universidad de la República (UdelaR) creates Flor de Ceibo (FDC), a project that has two main objectives: i) to contribute to the training of college students committed to the reality of the country; ii) to collaborate with the development of this policy, generating spaces of learning and intervention. Professors guide a group of students from different degrees to work on telematics mediation in schools and communities. The research problem is to identify educational processes in line with the emergence of interactivity, considering a new communication dimension in relation to knowledge construction. It is assumed that relations with the knowledge and processes of construction and socialization of knowledge, in Multireferential Learning Environments mediated by ICTs, are tools that enhance new ways of learning for a intercultural citizen. To approach to the problem of study and to answer any of these questions is used the network analysis and the multireferential ethno research.
