ABSTRACT
RESUMO

O uso de Recursos Educacionais Abertos (REAs) tem despertado a aten√ß√£o dos pesquisadores na √°rea da educa√ß√£o pelas contribui√ß√Ķes que pode trazer para o desenvolvimento da aprendizagem, incluindo o ensino de l√≠nguas. Um dos problemas encontrados, no entanto, tem sido a dificuldade de adapta√ß√£o dos REAs a diferentes contextos de aprendizagem, na medida em que v√™m prontos para o professor e n√£o apresentam facilidades de modifica√ß√£o. O objetivo principal deste trabalho √© descrever os resultados obtidos com um sistema de autoria que permita ao professor produzir e/ou adaptar REAs que atendam √†s necessidades espec√≠ficas de seus alunos. Para isso, usa-se como metodologia de desenvolvimento o recurso de software livre, com base na linguagem PHP, em uma concep√ß√£o de colabora√ß√£o em massa, em que cada REA pode ser desmontado em seus componentes b√°sicos pelo professor, remontado com modifica√ß√Ķes e redistribu√≠do para outros professores. Esses outros professores, por sua vez, usando o princ√≠pio da modularidade el√°stica embutida no sistema, podem repetir o processo e introduzir novas modifica√ß√Ķes, criando um amplo acervo, praticamente sem limites de acesso, de espa√ßo para armazenamento e de possibilidades de modifica√ß√£o. Os resultados, conforme exemplos produzidos e modificados por professores, mostram, do lado positivo, a viabilidade do sistema em produzir REAs adaptados a diferentes contextos de aprendizagem. Do lado que precisa ser melhorado, percebe-se a necessidade de o professor se adaptar ao mundo virtual, produzindo materiais mais interativos, muito al√©m do texto impresso em papel.

ABSTRACT

The use of Open Educational Resources (OERs) has called the attention of educational researchers for the contribution they may bring to learning, including language teaching. One of the problems found, however, is the difficulty of OERs to adapt to different learning contexts because they come ready made for the teacher and are resistant to changes. The main objective of this paper is to describe the results of an authoring system that allows teachers to produce and/or adapt OERs that serve the specific needs of their students. Using this authoring system, based on open source code, teachers, within the massive collaboration approach supported by the system, can disassemble OERs into their basic components, reassemble them with modifications and redistribute them to other teachers. These other teachers, in turn, using the elastic modularity principle embedded in the system, may repeat the process and introduce new modifications, creating a large repository, without practical limits in terms of access, storing space and modification possibilities. The results, according to examples produced and modified by the teachers, show, on the positive side, the capability of the system to produce different OERs adapted to different learning contexts. On the other hand, the need for teachers to adapt themselves to the virtual world, producing more interactive materials, well beyond the printed text on paper, is also felt.
