TECHNOLOGY USE IN EDUCATION – In this article, we have sought to conduct a bibliographic review listing scholarly papers on the convergence of education and technology. We believe that this work can help researchers new to the topic and organize period production by providing an overview of the topics under study and highlighting gaps. To collect data for this bibliographic review, we only searched the Head Journals portal for full articles that were due to be published between 2017 and 2022. Literature reviews and non-referred journals. As a result, we highlight a recurring concern in the articles: bringing technology into teaching and learning. This may be due to the fact that this approximation is still recent, indicating the need to deepen understanding of educational contexts and to suggest solutions. The people involved in these processes are also concerned with productions that emphasize the changing roles of the teacher, who acts as a facilitator, rather than a source of knowledge, and the students, who must develop critical thinking. And independence. The path to be taken so that technologies are not only present in the classroom, and not part of planning and assisting in educational objectives, remains to be overcome by solving problems that arise in the physical, personnel and institutional areas.

A SYSTEMATIC REVIEW OF THE LITERATURE ON INFORMATION TECHNOLOGIES USED IN REVERSE LOGISTICS
Gradually, information technology has shown itself to be a powerful ally of reverse logistics, which can give competitive advantages to organizations that use it together. Product tracking, sharing or sharing technologies are fundamental to reverse logistics companies and need to be studied in detail. Based on this, the goal was to identify the information technologies that are implemented by reverse logistics companies and the purpose of their use. Through the Web of Science database accessed through the Capes Periodicals portal, a systematic bibliographic review and compilation of publications from 2000 to early 2019 was conducted on Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) as the premier solution for product traceability in reverse logistics.
TECHNOLOGY USE IN EDUCATION – INTRODUCTION
Resource scarcity, environmental regulations, consumer interest in green and sustainable products, and the potential profitability of industrial operations have led manufacturers to consider reverse logistics (RL) activities as part of their business model (ESMAEILIAN; BEHDAD; WANG, 2016). In this context, several authors argue that LR needs to be valued and recognized as an opportunity to gain competitive advantage, so it must be strategically managed and understood as a core activity in product life cycle management (STOCK and MULKI, 2009). (Rogers, Limbic, Bernardino, 2013). According to Rogers and Tibet Lambkin (1998), RL can be described as the process of planning, implementing, and controlling the efficient and economical flow of raw materials, work-in-progress, and finished products from the point of consumption to the point of origin. y to restore, create or dispose of value. Realizing the potential for RL lies in increasing investment in resources to support these processes, such as investment in technology (CHOUINARD; D’AMOURS; AÏT-KADI, 2005; MEADE; SARKIS; PRESLEY, 2007). Research by Garcia-Sánchez, Guerrero-Villegas, and Aguilera-Caracul (2018) shows how Information Technology (IT) has a direct and positive influence on RLs, helping them to make better decisions. While there is a positive correlation between investment in IT and LR, there are many challenges organizations face in adopting and using the technology. The difficulties may be due to the fact that these technologies are not usually developed with LR in mind, note Rogers & Tibet Lambkin (1999). However, in LR, technologies such as the Internet, Big Data, and RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) can have a significant impact on the design and management of these systems and should therefore be examined as they may alter the existing infrastructure, thus affecting the life cycle management of products (Med, Saris Presley, 2007). With this in mind, the study presented here aimed to answer the following question: What information technologies (IT) are being implemented by reverse logistics companies and what is the purpose of using them? To answer this question, this work aims to explore the development of information technology research applied to LR through a systematic literature review (RBS). The article is organized as follows: After this introductory section, Section 2 explains the methodology adopted to carry out the work. Section 3 discusses the results of the systematic review, and finally Section 4 summarizes some of the findings and presents opportunities for future research.
TECHNOLOGY USE IN EDUCATION According to Gill (2008), the methodological approach of this study is characterized as exploratory, through bibliographic review, and description, to explore the characteristics of a particular group. A systematic bibliographic review (SBR) was performed based on the procedures indicated by Comfort, Amoral, and Silva (2011). Inspired by Ismailia, Baghdad, and Wang (2016), a quantitative-qualitative model was adopted using a three-stage research method: identification, bible metric analysis, and content analysis. The bible metric analysis consists of examining 255 peer-reviewed articles in the Web of Science (Woos) database, examining publication years, citations, countries, main keywords, and authors. Content analysis was performed after reading 9 articles received as a result of RBS final selection. The applied method can be seen through the steps shown in the figure below. The first stage – identification, consisted in defining the research problem. An exploratory literature search was performed to identify articles related to the research topic to identify the search strings presented in Table 1. Accordingly, the strings were included in the Web of Science database, resulting in 722 articles found and submitted to Phase II.
RESULTS AND DISCUSSION
TECHNOLOGY USE IN EDUCATION Literature review is offered in phases two and three. Firstly, bible metrics are detected, which, using frequency analysis, made it possible to identify and characterize groups by occurrence of keywords; The situation has evolved around the issue, the countries with the most publications, and the authors with the most publications. Further, the result of the content analysis of the selected works is reported, which made it possible to identify the adopted technological solution. Bible metric analysis (Phase II) using VOS viewer software mapped the results for the keywords shown in Figure 3. Of the 255 articles examined, three groups were formed, each with a different topic, but all related to each other. It is important to stress that the three groups are related to each other, that is, the same work may be considered by more than one group. Each node represents the frequency of occurrence of a keyword, and the lines indicate the relationships between these words. The keywords information technology and reverse logistics were the most popular, as expected, as they represent the main topic of the study.
Based on a review of the literature on the use of information technology in the Republic of Latvia, it has been noted that the topic has been increasingly studied over the years. However, almost half of the business is concentrated in only two countries (USA and China). Apart from examining the importance of information technology in LR, the most important works of this study are devoted to the technologies themselves. The most talked about was RFID technology, which was used to track and monitor products and share information. The downside is the cost, which is quite high compared to other marking methods.
