Weekly, starting in 2020, students will have 01 (one) 45-minute class, in which teachers will teach activities and content related to the main themes of the component:
Digital Information and Communication Technology (TDIC): related to the various existing digital communication tools and also to innovation.
Digital literacy: develops the different forms of communication, including interpretation and critical thinking.
