It should be emphasized that the designed environment will promote learning processes and construction of activities that impact on the possible innovation of teaching processes in formal systems. And that these processes, in their turn, aim to achieve specific educational goals and skills by young people in training
The framework of results expected by the students as users of the environment is, therefore, a central part of a more general conceptual framework proposed and, beyond to guide the aims of the project, has determined the structure, form, content and functioning of actions and products to be developed.
