Escola do Legislativo continues with the agenda of the Digital Inclusion course

This Thursday, the morning of the 13th, the second class of the course Digital Inclusion: Computers and Internet Basics was held for the morning class. The participants, mostly women, are delighted with the content offered. Classes continue until the 27th.

For server Zulnei Mari de Oliveira, who works in Adjunct Maintenance Advisory, the opportunity to participate in a course like this has been waiting for a long time, but due to the pandemic, it was only possible to do it now. “The course is very good. The teacher is considerate. It is a good opportunity for us to learn more and more”, he guarantees.

Professor Cairo Rezende dos Santos explained that the lack of access of students to the contents prepared for classes is great. “They will have the opportunity to learn from simple actions, such as copying files to more complex ones,” he pointed out. According to Rezende, since this is the first course in the field of digital inclusion, it is also important to understand how students will behave. “In this second class, the content is more dynamic with practical exercises,” he pointed out.

Cairo gauged student interest. “These are mostly women, very interested and very dedicated,” she says. The aim of the course is to offer training for working in the digital environment and its resources through basic knowledge of the Windows operating system and the Internet. The course has a workload of 12 hours. For morning classes, classes will be from 7:45 to 9:15; for afternoon students, it will be from 13:00 to 14:30. There were 16 free places per class. Meetings will always be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays until the 27th.

For Milena Costa, head of the Escola do Legislativo’s Pedagogical Department, the initiative for the course arose when the need to offer a basic Word course was recognized in the first semester. “We have a very diverse audience at Aleg, and the goal is to get to know the diversity of people who work here,” he explains. According to Milena, it is likely that the Digital Inclusion course will become part of the School’s annual work program.


The lecture is led by Professor Cairo Rezende dos Santos. He has a master’s degree in electrical engineering from the Federal University of Goiás (2012), a postgraduate study in project management from the IPOG Graduate Institute (2015), an electrical engineer from the Federal University of Goiás (2009), a computer specialist in Networks from 3Way Networks (2016). Rezende is an efficient officer of the Information Technology Directorate of the Legislative Assembly of Goiás.
