Currently one of the biggest problems faced by the schools is the students’ lack of motivation  and their difficulty in learning some of the basic education subjects,  especially math. Fortunately, there are a few tools that can be used to help overcome these difficulties, improving the learning process and even making this process more fun and engaging for the students. With the growth of computerization in schools, many of them already own and make available computer labs for teachers and students, but they are often not used because of the teachers’ lack of information on how to use this resource in their favor. This work aims to reinforce the importance of training public school teachers on the use of educational softwares in the form of games and the importance of its use as a teaching strategy, giving the teacher the opportunity to offer differentiated practical classes, as a new learning method. To this extent, we studied articles, public access educational objects and research carried out with public school teachers regarding the use of the computer resources available at the schools where they work. Many teachers are not aware of the variety of educational software and tools, in various formats and for all teaching subjects and levels, available for their area of expertise. At the end of the study, it is possible to observe how the teacher training and the exploitation of these resources can improve the teaching and learning process, besides helping teachers lose their fear of using computers in their classes. Thus, the use of these tools can be considered a response to the emerging demand for educational strategies that entice the student's attention and motivate them to put their knowledge into practice.
