Part of : Το βήμα των κοινωνικών επιστημών ; Vol.ΙΔ, No.55, 2009, pages 49-57

The integration of ICT in the school classroom raises new perspectives in the sociological theory of education that consists of a framework to explain the resilience of the power structure as well as the subjects’ role in participating in the educational process.More specifically, this presentation considers two basic questions of the Sociology of Education: the process of reproduction as well as the possibility for change. Educational change concerns structure on the one hand; the role of the subjects in a relation of interdependence on the other hand.The introduction and integration of ICT and the new technocratic reason in the school classroom which modifies the educational process, is one of the challenges that we are called upon not only to comprehend but also analyze in order to produce effective educational practices.
