In the contemporary world, or, more precisely, in this age of instantaneous and simultaneous information, the geographic reasoning has been detached and, simultaneously, modified by means of a new social and technological aspects. The present study was carried out with nineteen teachers of some geography teachers-formation courses, in public and private institutions, of various regions of Brazil. These teachers have worked with new technologies and/or researched and produced studies about their use in geography education. Therefore, we pursue the study searching for the answer of the following question: new technologies and spatial reasoning: are they related? The current technologies, as information vehicles, don´t have the purpose of developing the idea of “knowing and thinking the space” or to realize the “spatial reasoning”, but even without this purpose, people learn geography and think with the presence of these technologies. The geography education contributed to the formation of diverse people by means of the development of the spatial reasoning carried through two different scales, of the local to global place, showing joints between the diverse levels of abstraction, from the space of the work to its insertion in a society that has been very fast internationalized. KEY WORDS: Spatial Reasoning; New Technologies; Geography Education.
