What is a House of Knowledge (Casa do Conhecimento)? It's a space designed to be a flexible and interactive learning place, physically close to the local population and freely accessible to all sectors of society. A place where educational, cultural or knowledge dissemination activities would be developed and adapted to the needs of the region and, above all, respecting the capabilities and the digital skills of its population.

Digital technologies are a part of schooling, however, given the significant focus on using of digital technologies in teaching and learning, there is little evidence of wide scale transformation.
