Abstracts: The Digital age requires more and more training of teachers who develop skills consistent with the new demands of society. Among these skills, work with projects presents itself as an alternative to promote collaboration among students, deal with real problems and develop students’ autonomy. Such characteristics comprise the Education 3.0, in which the role of the teacher is no more simply a transmitter of knowledge and guardian of the order, but of designer and manager of a complex set of projects. This article aims to analyze the formation of teachers of a private school in the year 2016, in relation to the understanding of work with projects and its importance for contemporary education. As a methodology, an exploratory research applied to 73 teachers was carried out through a questionnaire containing nine closed questions and an open question about the understanding of the proposed activity. On the closed questions, an analysis of variance (ANOVA) was performed using the Microsoft Excel tool. On the open question, a discursive textual analysis was performed using NVivo software. The results showed that teachers, even without the previous explanation about the concepts involving work with projects and considering the little study carried out on the subject in the initial formations, succeeded in appropriating the contents covered, especially by means of the active methodology developed in the meetings. The evaluation of the proposed training with excellent results reveals the appreciation for the theme, by the methodology, but it can also point out that it is possible to work with innovative subjects according to the given approach, which is positive against the necessary changes in the Educational field. The results of this research can be used as future studies on teacher training using active methodologies or from the perspective of Education 3.0 to work subjects considered taboo or complex, to awaken the interest of the teachers.
Key words: teacher training, education 3.0, project pedagogy, project management
